Visit a hidden glacier!
We don't recommend that you take a sedan or sprinter van and drive off into the Alaskan backcountry. There aren't any excursions currently set up that involve a search and rescue. In today's age, we fortunately live in a world where there are vehicles specifically designed for these type of adventures.
It would be a shame to spend the entirety of your time in Alaska following the paved roads of local highways. Although these can provide appealing lookouts, the true Alaskan trailblazers veered off the beaten path and adventured into the alpine tundra. Hopping into an ATV,with a local as your lead, you will start a 6 mile journey through the wilderness as you soak in breathtaking views of stunning lakes, snow covered peaks and ever elusive glaciers. These are the type of panoramic vantage points that you truly have to see to believe.
Alpine ridges will take you to iconic spots like Bridal Veil Falls and Lake Bennett. Locations like Paddy's Peak will provide an intimate run in with a hidden glacier. No matter where your ATV takes you, this excursion will show you Alaska the way it's meant to be seen!
