Experience Spring the Backcountry Alaska Way


There’s always a lot to do in Mat-Su, especially in Wasilla. But, when you want to experience Alaska truly, it’s time to get out of town and out into the backcountry for a day – or a weekend. Sure, you can head out for a hike, or take a drive into the wilderness. But, one of the best ways to see the countryside is to view it up close and personal atop an ATV.

Better still, you don’t need to own an ATV or have any experience operating one. You can book a private experience with Alaska All Terrain Tours, complete with a guide. All you need is a desire to enjoy nature from a new point of view.

 Get Up Close and Personal with Alaskan Wildlife

After a short safety and orientation course, travel through mining claim routes and forested trails, stopping to view the scenery and the wildlife along the way. Short tours last three hours, which is perfect for absolute beginners. If you’re feeling adventurous, you may want to book a full day excursion with a hot picnic lunch and an up-close view of Knik Glacier. This ice tower spans 28 miles long with a thickness over 1000 feet and is a sight you don’t want to miss.

Ready for a real break in Alaskan backcountry? Why not try one of the tour operator’s three-day safaris. While the days will be filled the sights and sounds of the wild, evenings are spent tucked into lodges and B&Bs.
