Alaska Ice Road Snow Machine Tour

Your life-long Alaskan guide will pick you up at your Anchorage hotel and bring you 50 miles north of Anchorage and introduce you to the rural community of Big Lake. The unique thing about this small town is many of the residents live on islands or on the opposite shore of Big Lake, and depend on boats for transportation during the summer and ice roads during the winter. Explore the frozen road system by van of the largest lake in the area, as well as the adjoining Mirror lake and Flat lake, and learn about the varied lifestyles of the people living in this beautiful corner of Alaska.

In addition, you’ll get the opportunity to recreate the way the locals do! These easy-to-operate snowmobiles plus a snow-covered lake is an equation for real Alaskan fun, as you may observe from the people who live on the lake. Enjoy a thrilling ride of your own design with a view of snow-covered trees and mountains beyond the frozen lakes.

Afterward, enjoy a complimentary meal at the local bar & grill “The Islander”, located on an atmospheric island in the middle of Big lake.
