Bigtime fun on this multiday Alaskan Ski-Doo adventure in Girdwood, AK

About this adventure

Your first day of this incredible guided 5-day Ski-Doo Alaskan adventure begins in Anchorage, continues with lunch atop Mount Alyeska via aerial tramway, and ends with a comfy 4.5 hour van ride to the iconic Sheep Creek Lodge for dinner and to the Backwoods Lodge for a good night’s rest, which you will need for the thrills that lie ahead!

Over the course of the next four days, you’ll Ski-Doo over 90 miles of groomed trails, head deep into the Alaska Range where you’ll explore glaciers and as many ice caves as your experienced guide can find. You will ride through pristine valleys, cross over frozen lakes and rivers and up mountain passes, and maybe – just maybe! – you’ll see one of nature’s most beautiful, life-changing shows – the Northern Lights. And you might also come across a moose or two. Your tour ends with some well-earned relaxation time at the Alpine Creek Lodge and a farewell dinner back in Anchorage.

Get a glimpse of what's ahead.

See the Ski-Doo in action.
