Tour Description:

If you enjoyed sledding as a kid, you’ll love these steerable stand-up sleds! Backcountry Kicksledding mimics traditional dog sledding in a fun way that is growing in popularity in Alaska. Get out in the fresh air of the snow-covered Alaskan wilderness and glide across frozen lakes or trails with this unique winter activity!

We offer 2 kinds of tours: within the Anchorage area and a remote backcountry location.

Meet your guide at the trailhead or we can provide transportation to enjoy a kicksled outing on an easy scenic trail! Our Anchorage area trails are carefully picked for kicksled compatibility and wild Alaskan beauty with wildlife viewing possibilities. Our trails are about 1.5 miles long and travel through forests, over frozen rivers and lakes.

If weather permits, picnic lunches, hot drinks, nature tours, scavenger hunts and other activities for kids are available.
