4-wheeled fun gets better when the snow flies!
Adventure through a winter wonderland of snow and ice. Riding options in the Knik Valley explode when the Knik River freezes over. Enjoy snow-covered forest, sand dunes, gravel beds, and meadows on this 50 mile round-trip excursion. Along the way, you will see Knik River, Pioneer Peak, Jim Creek, Friday Creek, Metal Creek, and finally, iceberg-filled, frozen Lake George at the base of Knik Glacier.
Late fall and early winter tours may have to be rerouted to a different trail while the river crossing at Jim Creek is freezing over. This typically happens at the end of October to beginning of November. The alternate trail DOES NOT go all the way to Knik Glacier. If this is unacceptable, please let us know at time of booking.
As with all of our tours… be prepared! Winter temperatures are typically 0°F to -20°F. Wind chill can make it feel even colder. Dress very warm. Wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Wear multiple layers. Thick gloves, winter boots and warm socks are recommended.
When scheduling, please let us know if you have plans after the adventure. Please allow several hours before any critically important events. We are going 25 miles into the wilderness where a myriad of things can happen that will delay our return.
Shuttle service to and from your hotel is available for a fee. Please inquire about this service when you book your adventure.
