Bikes, snow, and puppies oh my! “Exquisite bike tour!! It felt great being able to get some exercise but also enjoy Alaska scenery. The dogs were beautiful and very friendly. The best thing we did on our trip was to book this adventure!” ~ TripAdvisor
This all-inclusive tour 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. Experience world-class winter biking with well-maintained equipment, enjoy a hearty lunch, and then head north for a New York Times Featured Dog Sled Tour! Your local guide will share stories and history along the way, with local tips and tricks on how to stay warm and what life is like in the North.
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.
The bike tour of Earthquake Park in Anchorage, AK was so much fun! This was my first excursion during my Alaskan getaway trip. The tour guides, Elly and Stephanie, were... read more knowledgeable, experienced and highly accommodating. My group wanted to gather mud for facials since it’s reportedly very beneficial for your skin. Elly and Stephanie helped us safely venture out and gather the mud during low tide. So appreciative to have funny, upbeat and adventurous guides. Oh, did I mention the moose??! We saw several moose! This excursion is a MUST. Loved every minute.
Ellie was our guide and she was absolutely exceptional!!! She helped us navigate and learn the E-bikes and took us on trails that catered to our skill level!! She also... read more took the time to help us get some amazing pictures!! We felt so comfortable and taken care of!! We loved her so much!! Cannot recommend a better guide!! She is so knowledgeable about Alaska and gave us so much helpful information for the rest of our stay! If you book this tour, ask for Ellie!!!
I highly recommend taking this tour!
We saw a moose along the trail and stopped for photos (I got video too because he was eating). I'm so... read more glad I got to see one in the wild. It was the highlight of my trip.
We had 2 guides, Ellie who led the group and Stephanie who rode in the back with me. It had been about 30 years since I had ridden (FYI- practice biking before you go if you are rusty at it so you don't embarrass yourself...yup...I embarrassed myself!).
Stephanie was helpful, encouraging, and extremely patient. I really appreciated her staying behind and letting me know what was coming up on the trail such as curves and slopes.
Ellie stopped at various points along the way. As our guide, she shared information about Alaska that was really interesting. Both of these wonderful woman are first class. If you do anything while in Anchorage, this needs to be on your list!
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.
Enjoyed this bike tour! Met guides at the park for the 6:30 pm tour. After a quick tutorial.. we were off. The trail does have some rolling hills, but nothing... read more too strenuous. Beautiful scenery & we even came upon a moose munching on the side of the trail. The guides were very professional and informative. Even when being in close proximity to the moose, never felt unsafe. The guides are locals and knew exactly how to handle the situation to keep everyone safe. Definitely recommend this tour if you have the opportunity. *Do bring bug spray, the mosquitoes can be bad in places. Only a problem when you stop though …
We would highly recommend this tour! Elly did a great job leading the pack, stopping to provide photo ops and sharing fun facts as we traveled the trails. Half of... read more our crew live in Anchorage and were able to check out new trails and a new activity. (We may have to purchase our own fat tire bikes now. ) Elly is very knowledgeable of the trails and bikes so a perfect experience for a novice to an expert. We can’t recommend this tour enough!
Really excellent tour! Pretty easy bike ride on a fun route. Beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife. I highly recommend this trip, thought it was fantastic :-)
The route choice was great and the bike was in excellent condition. The guide was friendly. It was a great riding experience.
