This tour takes approximately 1.5 hours from start to finish. The tour begins at my guide office with helmet, snow gear and snow boot sizing and a snowmobile safety & operations brief. You will then practice ride until you are comfortable with your driving skills. Once you are comfortable with your snowmobile driving skills; we will depart to discover Alaska's wild side. Your 1 hour tour starts when we depart. I have hundreds of miles of trails to choose from. Trails will be determined by driving ability.
Don't forget your camera! We will stop as often as you want to capture wildlife and amazing scenic photos.

First of all, booking and other procedures are easy thanks Rod, and North Pole is just about 10 miles away from Fairbanks, and this place is easy to find. I initially started with 1 hour, but since I had a lot of fun, I extended it during the tour, which is not an issue at all. I had the honor to meet and learn from Andrew, my really cool and nice guide, and we spent a good 2 hours on the trail that was nothing but gorgeous and peaceful to ride on. Andrew was very patient with a first timer like me, and the instructions were clear and simple. Since I was the only one on the tour, we had a lot of chances sharing funny stories and different interesting things including a moose we saw along the way. If you are a first timer trying to experience snowmobile ride, I definitely recommend this.
Awesome trip! Highly recommended. Rod took care of us and made sure we were comfortable. For the first few minutes, he will make you go around to practice, then you go over the trail. Beautiful area. We even crossed a frozen lake! Pick-up is not available so we took a cab to the meeting point. Also if you are wearing glasses, I highly suggest switch to contacts because it fogs up and harder to drive.
Overall, it was a very fun experience!
