Excursion Overview

**THIS TOUR IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR THE 2024 SEASON**

Your excursion starts with a 75-minute scenic boat ride down the Lynn Canal. Along the way keep a lookout for whales, seals, and eagles as you pass by majestic mountains and cascading waterfalls. Afterwards, you'll land on an exclusive beach at the Glacier Point ATV camp where your guides will show you the ins and outs of your ATVs. These aren't your everyday machines either. 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. Your guides will make stops along the way to tell you about nature and history surrounding you as well as giving you the opportunity to change drivers.

When you return to our ATV camp, you will have some time to relax and enjoy a picnic lunch on the beach before taking the return cruise to town.

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!

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!

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.
