Glacier Point ATV Exploration Tour


Get ready for a rugged Alaskan adventure you'll never forget! Your excursion starts with a 75-minute scenic boat ride down the Lynn Canal.

Instead, these ATVs are high-powered and tailor-made for this remote Alaskan terrain! After everyone is buckled in, you're ready to hit the trail!

Follow your guides as they lead you through the twists, turns, bumps, and mud of the trail. Take in the beauty of the forest, beach, and towering mountains around you.

What a blast! Not only was the scenery gorgeous, what fun we had blasting along on the muddy trails. From the boat ride to & fro, to skipping rocks on the river. Highlight of this trip to Alaska!

Sep 2022 - Jasmine A.

Be prepared to be muddy! Was super fun to get out in a different way. Long boat ride out to the isolated site which was pretty. Turkey and cheese wrap, apple sauce, granola bar, and water. The ATVs can take a beating, it's impressive. The path is technical (as opposed to fast) and was fun to drive. Super muddy, we were covered so splash pants and a raincoat would be a good idea. Winding your way through the forest to an overlook of the glacier. Fun time out.

This was an amazing adventure for my family of four! Staff were excellent and informative and we had a great time. It had been raining several weeks leading up to our trip so it was super muddy but that just added to the fun!

Great excursion

Aug 2019 - Atiba B.

I was really looking forward to the ATV tour. The unexpected scenery was a pleasant surprise. Some of the sites we saw on this tour were some of the most scenic on our entire cruise. The boat ride was informative and a nice bonus to the tour. The ATV portion was really cool. I just wish there was a faster paced section of the tour. And for people that never ride ATVs, I would make more of an effort to recommend goggles. The tour was a little pricey, but we really enjoyed it and it was one of my highlights of our trip.

What a wonderful time!! Great ATV's the rain forest is beautiful & it couldn't have been better weather!! It was so fun to meet so many nice people and to see the glacier.. then the extra special "Extras" that are nature.. being able to see a whale in the water going back, all the sea lions & their babies, & the eagles!! Loved hearing all the historical & educational tidbits of the area, learning about the different types of rocks & stones in the area... it was all over a great time!! Thank-you!! WE HIGHLY Recommend this Excursion!! <3

Great Excursion! Saw more on this trip than any other. Guides were all knowledgeable and friendly. Each group got our own ATV which made it very personal. Well worth the time and expense.

May 2019 - Lauren G.

We had such a remarkable time! Our tour guide Elyse was fantastic! The trails were so fun. The weather was fantastic and we loved the picnic lunch. The boat ride there and back was breathtakingly beautiful. He stopped for us to see tons of sea lions. Bald eagles! To check out the waterfalls. And we got super lucky on the way back to see a pod of orca whales! We would totally use this company again when we return to Alaska in the near future!

We had so much fun on this excursion. Gavin and Ashley made the trip so enjoyable. They knew a lot about the area and gave some interesting tips and information. We would definitely do this one again if we ever go back to visit Skagway again.
