The fun keeps rolling when the snow flies! “What a blast! There’s no bad weather, only bad gear…Alaska Trail Guides had ALL the right stuff. Here’s to a first-rate adventure business with awesome owners!” ~ Bev B. TripAdvisor
This is an excellent taste of what Anchorage is all about in the winter. Perfect for adventures, families, and those who want to get out and explore our winter wonderland. Fat tire biking will put a smile on your face and make you feel like a kid again. Experience the fat bike phenomenon where it was born. Fat tire biking has become one of the most popular ways for locals and visitors to get out and play in the snow. Anchorage boasts 150 miles of multi-use forested trails in the winter. This tour aims to show you the best of what Anchorage has to offer. There are plenty of stops, stories, and photo ops along the way.
Does your group have varying fitness levels? Upgrade to an electric-assist fat bike and go faster and farther with friends and family. Also, great for the other half who doesn’t own the padded biking shorts.
The key to fat bike comfort is warm head, feet, and hands—Alaska Trail Guides provides pogies, hand warmers, and insulated overboots for these contact points so you’ll be ready for miles of riding! Just come dressed in layers (non-cotton), like you are going out skiing. The length of the trip may vary based on conditions.
Turn it into a full day of fun:
Bikes and Beer are simply two of the most incredible things humankind has ever invented. The only thing that makes beer taste even better is enjoying a locally crafted brew after an epic ride! Alaska Trail Guides has teamed up with Big Swig Tours to bring you the one-and-only Winter Bike and Brew Alaska style. After a morning of great riding, you will have time for lunch downtown before meeting your Hopperator for an afternoon of craft beer tasting at three of Anchorages’ best local breweries.
In the afternoon, join your Hoperator as they escort you off the beaten path to some of the finest breweries in Anchorage. This experience is as much about the history of Alaskan beers, the masters who brew them, and the locals who drink them as it is about tasting the beers themselves.
Enjoy a minimum of 14 beer tastings from 3 different brewery stops, a selection of appetizers at Midnight Sun Brewing Co., roundtrip transportation, and 4 hours of stories you’ll be sure to recount to your friends back home.
Our family had such a good ride with Elly @ Alaska Trail Guides. The ride itself was beautiful, the Chugach State Park is gorgeous. The bikes are so... read more fun to ride. We spotted a moose eating right beside the trail, it was very cool! Elly was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable about the area and patient when we fell just a little behind. She was also prepared with water and snacks. Great ride for families and we highly recommend it!
Our guide was great. We took breaks at appropriate times, saw moose on our ride, and Caitlyn shared some Alaska history. Equipment was great. We would highly recommend
We had a great experience with Elly and Frankie on the bike tour. They were very knowledgeable and made for a fun and safe experience. The equipment was in excellent... read more condition. The pace of the group was steady and not hard to follow. For a 20 something-year-old it was a little slower than my normal, but in a larger group it was great. They made a few stops along the way to catch your breath and to share knowledge of history and the landscape. There is an alternative to this tour, where you can rent bikes in downtown Anchorage and bike the tour yourself, but I still recommend this tour. The trail is 19-20 miles long and they drive you to the opposite end from Anchorage, so you can see the southern half. I would recommend renting a bike downtown and doing the north half on your own, as it's a great trail with lots to see. …

the winter and i had a great time exploring the area mtb. Would love to do the bike and brew tour if had time
My husband and I visited Alaska for our honeymoon and loved it. When we went on the bike tour it was raining and still so fun; I'd say the rain... read more added an extra element of excitement. It was definitely a workout, but worth the views!
Our guides were super knowledgeable, and were able to answer most of our many questions regarding Alaskan outdoors. They picked us up downtown and were able to drop back off where they picked us up.
All in all, we biked 8-9 miles into the park, were able to experience the outdoors quite a bit, and we saw a moose! 10/10 would recommend.
I would also recommend wearing pants/leggings and a jacket if you are sensitive to poison oak/ivy. Alaska has their own variety (cow parsnip - reactive when exposed to sunlight) that lined the trails we biked on.
This tour was excellent. I highly recommend it when in Anchorage. Elly and Frankie were great. They picked us up right next to the Anchorage visitors center and took us... read more to the park. It was a group of 6. My family of 4 and 2 other ladies. The bikes were very nice comfort bikes. The trail was beautiful. We saw 2 moose and 2 bears. Elly led the tour and the pace was casual. Most of the trip is downhill. We stopped several times to see things along the trail. Elly was knowledgeable and friendly.
My wife has not ridden a bike much in the past several years and had no problems.
Overall a great tour.
Had a great time exploring the Chugach State Park on this bike ride.

Elly and Frankie were very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
