    Chugach State Park
    Stop: 2 hours
    If you have always wanted to try snowshoeing but did not know where to begin, look no further. What is snowshoeing? Snowshoeing is an activity which allows you to travel easily through snow-packed terrain. We will start by taking you to the mountainous wonderland of Glen Alps in the Chugach mountains just to the east of Anchorage. After a quick introduction on how to use a snowshoe, we will begin by walking around the parking lot until you get comfortable using them; you will get the hang of balancing and adjusting your stance almost immediately. After everyone feels comfortable walking in their shoes, we will set off on our path. Our circuit takes us approximately two miles through hemlock forests and snow-covered alpine meadows. We will have plenty of opportunity for taking photos of the magnificent valley. There is opportunity to see small mammals, birds, or perhaps even a moose! Transportation included in total time of tour: (1 hour transportation & 2 hours hiking)

My girlfriend and I went on a hike on April 14th with Gregg. We tried the beginner's snowshoeing and boy what an astounding experience that was! If you are visiting Alaska and you want to experience the real Alaskan vibe, I would highly recommend considering them! When we started hiking, it started to snow a little which added more depth to our hike. Gregg is extremely knowledgeable about Alaska and his advice of viewing the Aurora Borealis came in very handy as we were able to finally see the lights! Next time I am back in Alaska, I am definitely going on a longer hike with GoHikeAlaska.

My daughter and I came in for a spring break/senior trip from Atlanta, Ga at the tail end of March and wanted to try snowshoeing. Matt was an awesome guide, picked us up at our hotel and took us to an amazing wilderness adventure that was only a short drive away. We were able to snow shoe on beautiful untouched snow and see amazing views. I think we picked the perfect time to come as there were almost no other people in the park. He took amazing pictures of everyone on the tour which was awesome as his camera was better quality than ours.He even took my daughter on a special sightseeing experience to the top of the peak! He was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna in the area and we learned quite a bit about the environment. Highly recommend!

We had a great time with Go Hike Alaska. The guide picked us up right on time from downtown Anchorage. It was the first time snowshoeing for both of us and she made sure we were both comfortable with the equipment and hooked in correctly. We had a fun hike through a beautiful area and she was friendly and knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. As a bonus, we had to switch days at the last minute and Go Hike Alaska was able to accommodate us.

Had the pleasure of taking this tour with Matt while I visited anchorage and all i can say is Wow. I had a great time, enjoyed a nice 3 mile snowshoe hike in an absolute beautiful area of Alaska, yet it was only a 20 minute drive from the city, Matt is a great host and very knowledgeable about the surroundings, i would definitely do this again.
