Horseback Riding In Alaska

Ditch the sound of motors in the big cities and let the sound of hooves guide your way instead with a unique horseback adventure. Many areas traveled on these guided tours are not accessible any other way, therefore they are a great way to explore the Alaskan backcountry. Choose from afternoon to multiday excursions.

Horseback Riding

Season: February - March and June - July $5,400+ Summer Packages 3 Nights +, $350+ / Night Winter A La Carte 3 - 9 Nights

Vis­it­ing Alaska’s old­est recre­ation lodge — found­ed in 1937 and set 125 air miles north­west of Anchor­age — is like step­ping back in time. Rus­tic log cab­ins pep­per the land­scape, the staff gets around by horse, and every­where you turn you’ll find shim­mer­ing water and tow­er­ing peaks. It’s tru­ly a place to unplug.

Season: May 5 - Sept 15 $99.95 3.5 hrs

To get a real sense of old-time Alas­ka, climb into Black Dia­mond’s fam­i­ly-friend­ly Cov­ered Wag­on Adven­ture for a trip through time. While guides fill you in on the area’s his­to­ry and nat­ur­al trea­sures, you’ll be pulled by two draft hors­es through the Alaskan tun­dra, with the moun­tains of near­by Denali Nation­al Park hov­er­ing over­head. Hear the his­to­ry of this coal-min­ing area as you pass through the wilderness.
