Get ready to explore the Denali wilderness in this incredible ATV tour, where you'll explore the rugged Alaskan terrain as you take in the jaw-dropping sights of some of the world's most beautiful landscapes! This Denali ATV tour will take you through beautiful forests, to overlooks with incredible 360-degree views, next to creek beds, and into open areas ripe for exploration and adventure, all while cruising at speeds up to 30 miles per hour in your choice of ATV vehicle.

With incomparable views of the Alaska Range, Otto Lake, and Healy Valley, plus the opportunity to spot some of Alaska's iconic wildlife, this Denali ATV tour is the perfect choice for those looking to spend an adventure-packed day in nature surrounded by the beauty of the tundra, mountains and snow-covered peaks.

The Denali Wilderness ATV tour begins with complimentary pick-up from several locations and hotels in Denali and lasts about 2 1/2 hours. Once you get to the base, you'll receive a thorough safety briefing and gear fitting, plus a comprehensive lesson on how to drive your vehicle if it's your first time. Then, you'll hop straight into the action, covering about 10 miles of rugged terrain through creek beds, forests, and ridgelines. Along the way, your guides will take you to the best spots for views, pictures, and rests, where you can swap with another rider so everyone can enjoy the ride. Whether you're a novice or an expert, your guides will ensure you have a safe and enjoyable Alaskan experience, so suit up and join us in this high-speed adventure!

Frequently Asked Questions

How large can groups be? Is there a minimum of people to join this group?
There is a minimum of two and a maximum of twelve vehicles per tour. For larger groups, a middle guide will be provided to ensure the safety and comfort of all participants. This additional guide will help ensure that everyone can enjoy the tour without any worries.
How old do you need to be to participate in this tour?
Though not everyone can drive one of the ATVs, all ages are invited to join in the fun as passengers. Please let us know if you require a booster seat or any other special accommodation.
Is there a minimum age for driving the ATVs?
Anyone over 18, or 16 with parental consent, can drive one of the single ATVs, provided they have a valid driver's license. To drive the side-by-sides, you must be 21 (or 18 with parental consent) and possess a valid driver's license.
Does my booking include transportation?
Round-trip transportation is included with your booking from a selection of nearby hotels and locations. We will provide you with exact details once you have booked and paid for the tour.
Can we see Denali from the trail?
Unfortunately, due to the positioning of the trails along the majestic Alaska Range, the awe-inspiring Denali is not visible.
What if I need a restroom stop during the tour?
There are no restroom facilities along the trail, just Mother Nature. If you need assistance, alert the nearest guide with hand signals, and they will direct you to a suitable area.
Will I get dirty? Do I need to dress in a specific way?
While how dirty you'll get depends on your speed and the weather conditions of the day, it's safe to say you'll get quite messy. To ensure you're prepared for the tour, dress appropriately in closed-toe shoes, long pants, and multiple layers to keep warm. Also, remember to bring a waterproof jacket to stay dry, as Alaskan weather can be unpredictable.
What if I have never been on an ATV before? Can I still drive?
The tour guides will provide a comprehensive training course before embarking on the trail. If any party members feel uncomfortable driving after the introduction, we will pair you with another group or the guide in a side-by-side vehicle.
