Look forward to...

Stopping in a snowfield with the still silence of the Alaskan wilderness cut only by the rumble of your engine.

Speeding across one of America's largest frozen lakes towards one of the world's most arresting peaks.

Watching the awesome Northern Lights swirl around the Arctic sky from your cosy cabin at night.

Watching moose roam the street of Anchorage.

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.

moosing around

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.

winter wonderland

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.
