“Riding Alaska ATV Tours was a great way for us to experience Alaska! The ride was perfect for our entire group, including my 80 year old mother, who otherwise would not have been able to get out into the Eklutna Lake State Park. The scenery was amazing!!”
“If you want a spectacular ATV experience in AK, book this one. Scenery is stunning. Jim, the owner/guide is very friendly, knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and an all-around great guy. Part of us rode the UTV with Jim; the others each drove a wheeler on their own. Jim pointed out wildlife (black bears) on the mountain side and knew the right spots for the best pics. Hands down, this was the highlight of our trip!”
Riding Alaska ATV Tours
We have decided no to run tours this year due to tourism and traveling uncertainty in Alaska. We look forward to running tours again in 2021! – Stay safe
We offer 2 ways to tour Eklutna Lake:
The first is the Eklutna Lake in Alaska guide driven ATV tour in a luxurious multi-passenger UTV (utility vehicle), and the sights will take your breath away. No experience is necessary, we do all the driving, it’s a great time for the whole family. UTV’s are larger than ATV’s allowing front seat and back seat passengers to enjoy the views. If you do not want to operate your own ATV on the tour then riding in one of our UTV’s with a guide will be a blast for you!
The ride in the UTV tour is a great option for small children and seniors. All guests on this trip are passengers, no drivers.
The other option is a “drive your own ATV guided tour” if you’re really feeling adventurous! You must be 16 or older to book this tour. Passengers have to be ages 8 and older to ride on the back of the ATV (2-up wheelers).
