Your personal trip guide will meet you in Anchorage from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Ted Steven’s International Airport or any pre-determined location in Anchorage to begin your tour experience. Once all the guests have arrived, we will travel to your first real look at Alaska high in the Talkeetna mountains at Hatcher Pass and Summit Lake. This historic location is where Alaska begins and will set the tone for the adventure to come.
After the incredible views we will enjoy an Alaskan feast at our base for the week at Alaska Backcountry Cottages. Once you have settled in, join us for an evening campfire to meet your whole team of guides and an evening of Iditarod stories. Not only will this be the best Alaskan food you have ever had, the views and the company will be the perfect ending to a great first day!
Our day begins with a flight through one of the most stunning and remote areas of Alaska. Home to glaciers, lakes and icebergs, waterfalls and teeming with wildlife, the Knik River Valley is a place you will not soon forget on your way to a high mountain glacier dog sled camp.
Once at dog camp, meet over-the-top friendly Iditarod sled dogs and learn about a life lived with dogs as we take a dog sled team across the glacier. Simply ride along for the photos of a lifetime, or if you want a chance to help drive the sled, you can do that, too. Don’t forget to thank the dogs for the ride and get your photo taken with Iditarod champions. They love the attention and you will have a memory for a lifetime.
Following on the glacier, the afternoon includes an adventurous hike to amazing views of waterfalls, Lake George and high alpine vistas. After returning to the cottages, enjoy a break and free time in town before dinner.
Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime! This world-class ATV tour to the Knik Glacier is an unbeatable experience. Our expert guides will take you through the remote, glaciated, backcountry of the Knik River Valley. They will lead you across beautiful meadows, splashing through mud holes, navigating rivers, forested trails, and past scenic mountains to the ultimate sight of Alaska’s mighty Knik Glacier. This tour gives you an up-close and personal experience of Alaska’s terrain, wildlife and grandeur. Whether you are a novice or an experienced rider this adventure is sure to be one for the books.
After getting fitted for gear, you will receive a safety briefing and your guide will teach you how to operate your vehicle. You will leave on the ATVs/UTVs from the cottages, and within a matter of minutes feel like you are in the middle of nowhere—in a good way. This tour is 6-8 hours and about 50 miles round trip. Once at the Knik Glacier you will have a chance to explore the areas around the terminal moraine, soak in the views, and enjoy a hot lunch. After lunch you will begin the trek back to home base for some rest, relaxation and a great meal.
We take to the skies again! Today is the day to try your hand at paddle boarding or kayaking in a glacial pool. For the truly adventurous why not take a dip in the icy waters that are guaranteed to take away your breath? Whether out of the water or in it, today is truly breathtaking with photos, deep blue pools and photos you won’t get anywhere else.
After a quick break at the cottages, our evening takes us to the Native Alaska Cultural Center and dinner at one of the best restaurants in Anchorage. The day concludes with a trolley ride through Anchorage and visiting the shops of downtown before returning to the cottages.
This morning, we leave the cottages and Knik River Valley to venture to Talkeetna, a small village that serves as the base of Denali. Enjoy spectacular views of North America’s tallest peak and free time in Talkeetna to shop and take in the local culture. After lunch at Mountain High Pizza Pie we will take a jet boat through Talkeetna Canyon where class 3 and 4 rapids are waiting — an unforgettable adventure with Mahay’s Jet Boat Service.
After dinner, enjoy an evening stroll along the river with Denali as your backdrop.
Unfortunately, all things must come to an end, but we will go out on a high note! We’ll have breakfast at the Roadhouse, a local landmark where you will enjoy 100-year-old sourdough starter pancakes and reindeer sausage. After breakfast, we will end our trip with a zipline excursion. Imagine soaring over the boreal forest with Denali in the background — adventure will literally be under your feet!
In the afternoon we will return to Anchorage to say goodbye. Transportation is provided to the airport or a hotel in Anchorage.
