Frequently Asked Questions
- Do we see the sunset on the evening tour?
Alaska is referred to the Land of the Midnight Sun due to the length of the summer days. In June, the sun sets after midnight, and in July, the sun sets after 11:00 p.m. Customers in these months will not see the sunset. In August, as the days shorten, some customers will see the sunset.
- Do we see animals on the trail?
Because the trail is narrow and heavily wooded, the sounds of the ATVs normally keep the animals away.
- Can we bring our own food and drinks?
Water and snacks are provided, but you may certainly bring your own. The drinks have to be non-alcoholic and in a plastic bottle.
- Can the driver and passenger switch position during the tour?
Yes, as long as each person has a valid driver’s license, is at least 16 years old, and is comfortable driving an ATV.
- Are there restrooms along the trail?
There are no restrooms on the trail itself. We make a restroom stop right before the trailhead and stop there again on the way back to town. Toilet paper is provided in each person’s snack pack in case guests need a bathroom break on the trail.
- Should I bring a backpack to carry my gear?
Guests are welcome to bring backpacks, but all the ATVs have storage compartments on them.
- How difficult is the driving for the first-time ATV driver?
The trail is relatively easy to navigate, and the ATVs are equipped with power steering and automatic transmissions. Guides set a comfortable pace while monitoring each driver’s abilities.
