Loved our experience with eric! Be prepared for a fun filled day being able to experience secluded beautiful sight seeing, nature and animal encounter, and of course the beautiful glacier as we had picked as part of our tour was out of this world beautiful and serene :). Eric's very passionate and knowledgeable and it shows, would recommend them to anyone- thanks again!

Fantastic. Bucket-list kind of thing. Took my two adult sons out for a 4 hour trip, and wish it could have been longer. I will admit to some trepidation as I am not in the best of shape (think too "round" and too used to sitting), but it worked out great! A perfect mixture of the fun of driving ATVs in the wilderness with stops to explore nature and learn the natural history of this special place.
Started with Oliver picking is up at the hotel in Anchorage. In a brand new and spacious van. He is prompt, smart, and very engaging. A delightful conversationalist for the 40 min drive to the launch point.
We were then provided excellent, new, or seemingly new equipment (gloves, gators, helmets, and ATVs) and then given a safety briefing, and operations review of the equipment. And we were off...
A wonderful morning of trails through woods, through stream beds, up to glacial lakes. We saw bald eagles, 1 moose, some sheep, and felt like we were in a truly special place. The guides were careful to make sure we had a fabulous (and safe) time.
On the way back, we came to the aid of a stranded Alaskan who had lost a belt on their ATV, and we brought him back out.
It's difficult to imagine a better morning introduction to Alaska. Would recommend it to anyone...no, no everyone!

What an awesome trip. Next time I want to do the 8 hour trip. My husband, daughter and I had a blast with these guys. They were so friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this trip!

The best and most extreme ATV tour I have ever experienced, however it should be noted that this tour should be marketed for experienced ATV drivers only. The scenery and wild life encounters enjoyed during the tour were without match! The complexity of the trails, water depth, dusty conditions resulting on very low visibility coupled with the expected speed requirements make this tour unsuitable for lesser experienced ATV drivers.
Our tour started more than 45 minutes late because the company didn't bring enough ATVs to the meeting point. While on the trail, one of the ATVs was flooded because it was driven on water too deep for the equipment. A considerable amount of time was spent performing repairs and draining water from gear boxes. ATVs oftentimes failed in the middle of water crossings due to belt slippage. My ATV didn't have a plug for some reason, so the owner kept using Duct Tape to plug the drain hole. On three occasions members of our party were separated from the leader resulting on long delays while searching for them.
Because of all of the mechanical issues, logistical delays, members getting lost and lack of a clear water crossing routes our seven-hour tour ended up being about 11.5 hours.
The food provided was good.
