The stars of the show in the snowy winter months are our fat tire bikes. Complete with studded tires, they are kitted out for an  exciting and unforgettable experience.

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. on TripAdvisor.

What to Expect on Our Fat Tire Bike Tours in Anchorage

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 them. There are plenty of stops, stories, and photo opportunities along the way too, so don’t forget your camera!

Does your group have varying fitness levels? Upgrade to an electric-assisted fat bike and go faster and farther with friends and family. This is also a great solution for the other half who doesn’t own padded biking shorts.

The key to fat bike comfort is a warm head, feet, and hands. At Alaska Trail Guides, we provide 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.

Skills Needed for Our Anchorage Fat Tire Biking Tours

  • Beginner – I know how to ride a bike, shift gears, and use hand breaks. I can control my speed and direction on the pavement, however, I am new to mountain biking and have never ridden dirt trails or ride off-road once or twice a year.
  • Novice – I have some experience riding dirt trails or off-road terrain and have been mountain biking several times. I can control my bike speed and direction on smooth trails and moderately uneven terrain, but often walk my bike when things get rooty. I am able to anticipate the terrain and know when to shift gears some of the time.
  • Intermediate – I have been mountain biking for at least 2 years and ride regularly. I am able to control my speed and direction on moderately steep and technical singletrack trails which may include tight trees, mud, loose rocks, and sand. I can roll over small obstacles but I don’t take my wheels off the ground. I can anticipate the terrain and know when to shift gears.
  • Advanced – I am a strong rider who has been mountain biking for 5 or more years. I am comfortable climbing and descending steep, technical, and exposed terrain that includes rocks, tree roots, primitive trails, tight switchbacks, short drops, and jumps.

Fitness Needed for Our Fat Tire Bike Tours in Anchorage

  • Leisurely: My main source of exercise is walking or light workouts once or twice a week. I enjoy getting outside and walking or light activity. I prefer mostly flat or downhill terrain. Short, small hill climbs are doable, but less is ok with me. (Less than 200 feet of climbing)
  • Recreational: Weekend warrior or commute to work or do spin classes in the gym, I enjoy an active lifestyle, working out 2 to 3 times a week with an occasional physical challenge. I enjoy gentle rolling terrain and feel great after reaching the top of a hill climb. (Less than 500 feet of climbing)
  • Active: Fitness is central to my life. I ride my bike regularly weekly (spin classes count!) or I work out 4 to 5 times a week physically challenging myself with almost every workout. I enjoy hills and like getting some speed. (Less than 1,000 feet of climbing)
  • Avid: Fitness is my life and everything I do revolves around my workouts and nutrition. I ride my bike an average of 100 miles per week and enjoy a fast pace for an extended time. I love to train, improve, and maybe even race my friends. I enjoy all-terrain!
