When Chris Roberts came up with the idea for Gold Mine Safari Tours, he knew he’d struck it rich, so to speak. This low-impact adventure tour showcases Alaska’s grandeur and highlights its mining history—all from the unique vantage point of an open-air, high-mobility ATV known as a Pinzgauer.
Alaska ATV Adventures offers a variety of day trips around the state, but its main offerings are on trails near Girdwood, where you can explore Alaska’s rainforest. You’ll ride to several scenic overlooks, including a view of Turnagain Arm. If you’re lucky, you may also see moose, bears, and eagles. Choose to drive, or just ride along while someone else does the steering.
