Recently, we have seen moose on a lot of our snowmobile adventures. We do try to get photos, but we keep a respectful distance from the moose to not disturb their natural habits. Thank you for the review.

I came alone with no experience driving a snowmobile (snow machine, is the proper Alaska term, I didn't know). I was scared, but the tour guide Rodney was very patient in explaining the machine and the safety protocols. I had a blast. I can see why this is addictive! All experience levels can have fun and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

We start every snowmobile trip with safety briefings/operating instructions and then practice on our practice track--then it's off to see the beautiful landscape and hopefully some wildlife. Thank you for the review.

CANCELLATION POLICY: 100% refund or free date and/or time changes more than 48 hrs prior to adventure start. Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to adventure start. Late arrivals are considered no shows and refunds will not be issued. This customer was 50 minutes late. I can not start tours late.

We loved our snowmobile tour with Andrew! He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The entire crew was amazing. They provided us with everything we needed, from jackets to boots. It was all high quality stuff! We had a magical moment of running into (not literally :p) moose on our ride. Very AWESOME!

We did both the dog sledding and the snowmobile tours. We have nothing but rave reviews of both! The guides and staff are friendly and helpful. The facility is clean, equipment is in good shape, and they run on schedule. We had a great time on both tours! The scenery on the snow mobile tour was especially beautiful. An added fun bonus that happened was we got lucky and saw a few moose. It is a very well ran business and we definitely would book again. Thank you for our great tour experiences. We definitely made wonderful family lifetime memories.

Most Unforgettable Snowmobile Tour.

Rod, the owner, was very accommodating and ensured everyones safety before beginning the actual adventure. We were late for our original schedule but he was still able to rebook us to a later schedule as an exception and because of that Im giving him and his team 5 stars. And for the record, this is the best experience I have in Alaska - the Snowmobile Tour. It is a definitely a must try. They also have a very organized amenities and everything is clean and sanitized. Staffs are all warm and friendly.

My guide, Rodney (Jr.), was the best! I was feeling very nervous because I had never driven a snow machine before. He was very kind, patient, and encouraging so I felt very comfortable rather than nervous by the end. This business is well organized and well run, from making sure you have good gear (they have stuff there!) to getting you out on your tour on time.
