Classic ATV Adventure with Back Country Dining
Meet your guide, who provides you with a safety training and information course. Go over all the functions of your vehicle, get fitted with a helmet, safety goggles, gloves, and optional rain gear then hop on board the ATV for a trial run. If you prefer not to drive your own ATV, you can join the guide as a passenger aboard their 2-person machine. Then, it’s time to head into the Alaskan wilderness.
Journey into the back country, traversing old mining trails that spill out onto the Dry Creek River Bed — an excavation site for Athabascan Indian artifacts. Stop to explore an abandoned cabin across the river, breathe in the fresh mountain air and make your way up Black Diamond Peak for spectacular views of the entire Healy Valley. Your guide fills you in on local history, flora, and fauna along the way.
Break from your off-road excitement for a hearty, back country meal. Settle in for either a full-service lumberjack breakfast with fresh-baked biscuits and gravy, thick-cut bacon, and flapjacks, or dishes that include ribs, steak, chicken and fresh salmon, depending on the time of day. Juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and adult beverages are also available.
Afterward, climb back on board your ATV machine for a wild ride back to your starting point.

Very organized and a fun group of guides! Training video followed by fun! Some in our group of 18 were concerned about driving their own ATV,, but seriously, not a problem.
We went on the ATV Adventure and it was fantastic. My wife was skeptical at first, but she loved it. The only drawback was that it was dusty following the vehicles ahead.
Great trip started with us being picked up exactly on time at our hotel going through the mandatory safety course and off we went. Joe was our guide and he was great. Me and my wife had never ridden before and she was a bit apprehensive but after a few minutes I was trying to keep up with her. Back Country Dining was a family style meal we all sat together and plenty of food to be had. Fall off the bone ribs, BBQ chicken, roasted salmon, beans, potato and coleslaw topped off with coffee/tea and apple cobbler. Well sated we were back on the trails Joe took us to a deposit left by the glaciers that carved out the terrain and gave us a history lesson and a photo opportunity then back to the shop so to speak. We enjoyed the tour and the food good value would give our recommendation of five Stars.
This ATV tour was great. At first we thought that there might have been a problem- they came and picked us up at hotel about 30 min late. BUT NO, it was not a problem. They apologized almost immediately and added the missing time back onto the end of the tour. Also, because we had 6 in our group- we were in our own group. The tour guides could not have been better- very professional. Even a rider with us with no experience and very nervous had a great time- and did very well. We would differently do it again
The guides were wonderful! The food terrific and the landscape amazing!
