3.5-Hour Denali ATV Trailblazer Tour
Get out and ride in the Alaskan Boreal Forest! Traveling at speeds up to 30 mph, maneuver through the taiga to picturesque panoramas of the Alaska Range. Observe glacial moraines and historic archaeological dig sites while navigating tree rutted trails, mountain-fed creek beds, and boggy tundra. Spend more time riding on the trail than any other Denali area off-road adventure tour. You may learn how to make fireweed tea, leave with a blueberry smile, or even chat about survival. Periodic stops are made for photography and wildlife sightings. Tackle the terrain in a single-rider ATV or share the thrill in a multi-passenger side-by-side ATV. Trails are challenging for all experience levels. Total tour covers about 20 miles with 2½ hours on the trails.
In 2017, we will have 4 types of ATVs to choose from! There is 1 single rider option and 3 multi rider side by side options. Every ATV is 4-wheel drive and has automatic transmission. All side by side ATVs have a roof and windshield.
Morning and late afternoon tours, when the light is low, usually have the best chance of seeing animals. Moose are not frightened by ATV engines and will often be on the trails, along the trails, or walking through our launch site! Smaller animals are more skittish and harder to spot in the brush. All tours are guided. Your tour group will be comprised of people with various skill and riding abilities. The tour guides will assess the speed that is best and safest for the tour group.
All of our ATVs are brand new for 2017 and ready to hit the trails!

Average 4.60 out of 5 stars based on 5 verified reviews from Cool Destinations and TripAdvisor.
My group of 5 really enjoyed the day. Wes,Sam and Clay were very professional and went out of their way to make sure we got the most out of our journey. Seeing a moose was an added bonus.I would recommend Denali ATV trips for anyone looking for an exciting experience.
The ATV trailblazer tour in Denali was spectacular. My 2 grown daughters and I had a blast with Elizabeth and her colleagues for 3.5 hours through the back woods of Denali just north of the National Park. Elizabeth was an expert ATV driver and was amazing at story telling. We really enjoyed the run through the dry out river beds and waterways. Be sure to wear outerware conducive for water and mud if you really want to experience the full fun of racing through the many stream beds and mud holes along the trail. We would definitely rate this a a sure fun activity for the entire family while visiting Denali.

Fun time and the guides were fun and informative. Local family business so it was good to know we were helping them and not a cruise ship facility. This is safe for everyone, they do have rules because of safety. You can't get crazy but you can buck the roads and water hard. You may bet a little wet but not soaked.
fantastic tour great fun - pity they forgot to pick us up and we had t call the company so we missed the first part.
