This tour was designed specifically with the adventurous in mind. It is far away from the crowds and affords the chance to see wildlife and Alaska in its pristine beauty. Dock to dock, this is a 3 hour excursion.
Located at the picturesque Eaglecrest Alpine, the tour follows a cross-country Nordic ski trail beside snow studded mountain peaks and towering spruce. A short training session helps you get acquainted with your Segway- and how it responds to your body language. After training you'll be given safety equipment and your own Segway. You'll be surprised how quickly you get the hang of it and how fun it is to ride.
Because you are on a Segway, you will have the opportunity to intimately interact with nature. Listen for eagle calls in flight, possibly see wildlife and smell the freshest air on earth. The balloon tires of the X2 are perfectly suited for the groomed gravel trail and provide a cushioned ride. Guests will enjoy cruising along through tall stands of Sitka Spruce and Hemlock. Glide through serene alpine meadows studded with ponds of lilies all in the shadow of snow capped peaks.
Your guide will provide interesting facts and details about the flora and fauna that are unique to Alaska. Several short stops for photos and to walk around are provided. The halfway point of the tour brings guests to breath-taking Fish Creek and it's crystal clear, snow melt waters home to all 5 species of salmon.
A short 10 minute walk along the Historic Treadwell Ditch gives guests a chance to see the old growth Tongass Rainforest in all of its pristine beauty and learn historic facts about Juneau and the gold rush. The guides will then share a locally sourced snack with the group.
This adventure is a must do experience! Your friends will wish they had come along.
