Come along for the ride in a sporty multi-passenger “side by side” UTV for an exciting afternoon of four wheeled adventure and hiking in boreal forest. Stop along the way to watch wildlife and
the signs they leave behind. Your guide will take you on trails and back roads with great views of the Klutina River Canyon, traveling over a moraine – the remnants of the glacier that once covered the entire river basin. Travel to the “Devil’s Elbow” named in 1898 by the men who traveled the area in search of gold. On this adventure you will see the remains of a colossal landslide and spectacular views of Wrangell St. Elias National Park. Spring trips will bring an abundance of wildflowers and fall trips the colors of autumn.


Wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring a rain jacket, camera, and binoculars. The hike portion of the trip is approximately 25 minutes of walking over uneven terrain and unsuitable for those unable to walk unassisted. Included in the price is a $20 land use permit to access Ahtna, Incorporated owned land. Ahtna is one of 13 Alaska Native Regional Corporations, and the permit helps support important programs to help maintain the lands for enjoyment by current and future generations.
