Bored? Head to Alaska. When you’re on your snowmobile, gripping the throttle, wrapped in layer upon layer of wind-proof thermals, the uniformity of daily life feels far, far away. In this remote field of powder soft, metre-deep snow all you can see is the blue sky, snow-laden mountains, emerald green pine forests and your fellow travellers: no buildings, no people, and, most importantly, no tracks. Rev the engine and feel the power surge you forward as you glide across the plain to base of the impressive Mount McKinley.
The Ultimate Snowmobiling Adventure
Spend four thrilling days driving from cosy lodge to cosy lodge with your bags slung on the back of your snowmobile.Nothing will be between you and the stunning Alaskan wilderness except your specialist guide and the thought of a hearty home-cooked meal. Follow the historic Iditarod Trail into the heart of the Alaska Mountain Range, riding over 1,000 miles of frozen rivers, icy swamps, and snow-smothered side hills.
Alaska’s Stunning Landscapes
Forget Les Trois Vallees, here you’ll see snow like never before. And you won’t need the smouldering fire in your cosy wooden lodge to encourage you out of bed in the morning – you’ll be raring to go first thing once you’ve had a taste of off-trail riding through deep, untracked snow. And the landscapes? Let’s just say you’ll kick yourself if you forget your camera.
Around the snowmobile safari you’ll be based in Anchorage, where the
friendly locals share the streets with roaming moose.To prepare for your backcountry expedition, treat yourself to fresh Alaskan crab, hand-picked straight from the Pacific ocean in one of Anchorage’s finest eateries.
If you’re ready for more, we can also arrange ice-climbing and heli-skiing, whale watching, kayaking, and searching for bears in the vast national parks - just ask us and we’ll have you there before you can say Mount McKinley. As icy adventure playgrounds go, you can’t slip up in North America’s largest state. Go there first and blow away winter’s cobwebs on this invigorating high-speed voyage. You won’t regret it.
