Midnight Sun's Policies

Our goals is to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable excursion into the Alaska wilderness. These policies listed are our guidelines to operation.  Please review these policies at your leisure and if you have any questions or concerns please contact us and we will do our very best to address them.  Thank you.

Safety

Your safety is our number one concern.  Driving an ATV is a very enjoyable experience and ATVs can take you places you could otherwise not visit. ATVs operated correctly, are a very safe vehicle, however when not operated correctly these machines can be very dangerous.  We ensure that our ATVs are operated correctly by providing the following.
  1. Pre-ride safety instructions
  2. Hands-on riding instructions under the supervision of the guides
  3. Driving practice before trail riding
  4. Options to be a driver or passenger
  5. At anytime during the tour a guide feels that you are being reckless, they may end your tour without a refund

Medical

Guides are First Aid and CPR certified.  Guides are equipped with satellite phones in case of a medical emergency. We will be out of cell phone range most of the time. Pregnant women are not allowed on these rides. Sorry, but congratulations on the baby! If you have neck, back or other recurring medical concerns, your doctor should be consulted before booking a tour. We will be miles from any medical facility.

Drivers and Passengers

It is mandatory that all drivers be at least 16 and present a valid Drivers License. Any person under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who will be required to sign a liability waiver; NO EXCEPTIONS!    Passengers on the 2-up or side by side must be at least 12 years old. For safety, the guides may require passengers on a 2-up ride with them until their driver is comfortable driving with them.

Clothing

This is Alaska! Though we have very pleasant summers, you should prepare for cool weather. Bring enough warm clothing to dress in layers. Wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty. Boots or tennis shoes are required. Sandals, flip flops or any kind of open-toed shoes are NOT allowed!  We do not cancel rides for weather. We will provide helmets, goggles and gloves. Each ATV will have some storage for extra clothing.

Snacks, Electronics, and Payment

  • There will be complimentary snacks and drinks. You can bring your own snacks and non-alcoholic drinks if you choose. Drinks must be in a plastic container. NO GLASS!  Each ATV has some storage room for your smaller items. On the all day tour, you should bring a big lunch.
  • Remember you will be riding off-road. Any valuables, keys, electronics etc….can be lost in mud, tundra, ponds or puddles. Bring only what you really need, a camera or video camera. We won’t be responsible for damaged or lost items.
  • We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and cash. Payments must be made in full at the time of reservation.

Cancellation and Liability

  1. You have up to to 48 hours prior to your scheduled tour departure time to cancel and receive a full refund or change your reservation without penalty.  Under 48 hours from your scheduled tour departure time, reservations are non-refundable.  This means next-day and same-day reservations are non-refundable.  In the event that your ATV tour is cancelled, a full refund will be given.
  2. It is required to read and sign the liability form before you can precede with the tour. The form will be available to fill out when you check in.
