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
Go North! Willow is a winter wonderland where locals go to play. With miles of maintained, groomed trails experience fat-tire bikes in the environment, they were designed to conquer. Pedal your way through the woods, enjoy the crisp air and catch the afternoon sun on frozen lakes that create wide-open spaces. Meet the dogs that have run the Iditarod, the Last Great Race! Learn about the amazing sport of dog mushing and then hit the trails on a dog sled. You can either sit and enjoy the ride or help your guide drive the sled!
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. 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.
Saturday morning tour with my daughter and another couple. Derek was informative and safe. The tour route was terrific (we could see Mt. McKinley) and the equipment was... read more top notch. Our last activity after 10 days in Alaska, not disappointed. A really great way to begin or end your Alaska experience. Thanks Derek! …
Very beautiful ride along the Coastal Trail. We went in the evening and the trail was not very busy. The ride was about 11 miles and felt very doable for... read more everyone in our group - trail is easy and relatively flat most of the way. Our guide, Chance, was very informative and accommodating to our group of differing age levels (26-65 years old). There were multiple types of quality bikes to choose from (cruiser or hybrid) in multiple sizes.
Only “complaint” is that we didn’t see any moose.
Recommend wearing a windbreaker.
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!
I cannot recommend Alaska Trail Guides highly enough. I took the Kenai Peninsula tour with Elly and was impressed and delighted throughout. The pre-ride coordination and communication were top notch... read more and the ride itself exceeded expectations. Elly shared tons of knowledge about the greater Anchorage area and provided great company for the ride down the Seward Highway. In fact, she told me about a trail that I hiked the following day for one of the most awe-inspiring experiences of my life. The ride on the Peninsula was breathtaking (in a good way!) for its views and the experience of riding the trail. I am so glad I found this service and truly appreciated the expertise of Elly to allow me a sample of Alaska on two wheels!
We loved the scenic route along the trail! We saw a large moose by the airport. So cool! Katlyn was a great tour guide!! I would HIGHLY recommend this active... read more bicycle tour!!!!

Went this morning with guide Elly who also happens to be an owner of this company. Had an outstanding time. She was well knowlegable about Anchorage history and Alaska... read more in general. We saw two eagles and three Moose, baby, mamma, and a male bull. It was awesome. Today's date is 9/21/2020. A bit chilly but it was do able.
