At 8:50pm on June 23, a very energetic and knowledgeable employee of Denali ATV Adventures picked us up in front of our hotel for the 2.5 hour Midnight Sun Adventure. We were transported to Healy, just outside of DNP border, on a shuttle bus to begin the tour. Each of us in our party were given a single rider Kodiak ATV, a helmet, a pair of goggles and a mask (for dust protection). Because of the lack of rain, it was a thrilling but very dusty ride. We went over and through all sorts of crazy terrain, including a river. The guides stopped a few times times to share fun information about the area and allow for photo opportunities. We wrapped up the tour shortly before midnight. The guides were all very personable, energetic and extremely patient with the slower riders. Don't miss this one when in Denali.

***FYI*** - Just read the recent "Don't waste your time" review where the reviewer was forced to drive alongside a guide on a two seater. That policy was made very clear to all of us before we began our tour. The guides stated clearly before we set out that if any of us experienced difficulty or demonstrated the inability to follow the group or properly operate an ATV, we would have to ride the remainder of the tour next to one of the guides who was on a two seater ATV. It is an excellent rule that is in place for your safety as well as everyone else's around you.

The tour was guided by Devin, Chris, and Danny who were on top of their job. In the beginning there were a few issues but they were quick to fix them. The ATV ride was led by them and they took it at a perfect speed. At no time did it feel like the pace was too fast or two slow. We got to stop at three beautiful viewpoints with historical and geographical importance. The routes were well planned, giving a sense of adventure and some really nice views. My family got a video package and they were quick on uploading it and the video was surprisingly very good quality. Overall, it was great ATV tour and I would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a blast at Denali

13/14 of our family celebrated Independence Day by taking the Midnight Sun ATV tour; some rode the mules and the rest were on 4-wheelers. What gorgeous sites and braided streams to ride through. Our tour guides, Megan, Colton and Jeremiah were lots of fun. I enjoyed learning about the rocks and their adventures while living in AK!

I would not recommend this for anyone with a bad back; lots of bumps and slamming.
I would recommend wearing a mask to filter the dirt. I wore mine for dirt and the smoke from a nearby fire. It really messed with our views.

BEWARE! Be careful booking with this company if you plan to have them pick you up. They are deceptive with the departure times and then keep your money, saying you were a “no show”. My tickets said departure was at 10:00 from my hotel. Nobody showed up. A little after 10:00, I called Denali ATV Adventures asking where the shuttle was and the woman said the driver already left because the departure time was at 9:30. I told her I was out there at 9:30 because I made sure to be early as I didn’t want to miss the shuttle. Then she said the departure time was actually 9:25 for my location! I told her my tickets state the departure time from my hotel is 10:00 and she said that is departure time from their location. This was not on my ticket! I asked why the driver didn’t try to contact me prior to leaving and she said he did. I said I didn’t have any missed calls or texts and she said I probably didn’t have service (even though I was speaking to her from the same location where I was waiting). The lady said the driver would have gone inside to look for me so I asked the front desk and they said they didn’t see anyone from Denali ATV Adventures looking for anyone but they saw a driver from a raft tour company. Denali ATV Adventures refused to give me a refund or even a credit toward a future outing. I ended up purchasing a second outing for later that day at full price because this was a bucket list item and the only day we could do it. When we left for that outing, the driver said he was waiting for two more people. Five minutes later, he ended up leaving without them. Denali ATV Adventures probably kept their money. I also heard the driver talking to a couple who was asking about a pick-up time for a tour the following day. The driver told them to arrive 15 minutes prior to departure, which does not match the 35 minutes prior to departure time I was given by the office staff. Those poor people probably also lost their money. I hope this review will save people some money and stress. There are other ATV companies out there, I would avoid this one.

We paid for a 3.5 hour tour. Left at 10:50 am (50 minutes late) and returned at 1:10 pm. They advertise as a Denali Wilderness Tour. Be sure you understand you are not in Denali Park and are a ways from the park. You are never more than a mile and a half or so from pavement. Spent most of the time splashing around in a drainage. If you are someone that has never been on an ATV and just want to ride one, this may be the trip for you. If you are looking for a tour where you will see wild country and wildlife, you will be sorely disappointed. Guides were good, but the trip was a waste of money for us. You basically make a big loop in an area not far from pavement. There were two nice lookout points, but other than that there wasn’t much to see. We paid for a 3.5 hour trip and they cut us over an hour short.

Chelsea, Colton & Shane were our guides on the Midnight Sun tour. We had no experience on ATV's but the equipment was in great shape and easy to get up to speed if you know how to drive. The 3 guides complemented each other well. The rest stops were entertaining and informative. I have forgotten the shuttle driver's name but she is a gem. She was the best driver we had in our 2-week Alaska Vacation. She was very engaging, with information on the short ride to the ATV site and the ride back. She even gave me advice on other things like the food options in the area and she was spot on. Thanks! The time went by too fast and the conditions were dry so unfortunately no splashing for us. We will have to do it again!

We did this group tour with 2 side by side Wolverine ATVs. My wife drove one with our older daughter (14) and I drove the other with my younger (12). The tour was awesome. The guides were funny and knowledgeable and the tour took place over gnarly terrain but the ATVs handled it like a dream. No complaints whatsoever. It was pretty wet and muddy but that just added to the experience. Definitely wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty!

We did some research before booking and I’m glad we did. We opted for a private tour because we know how to ride a four wheeler and we thought the group tour would be a little boring. We called last minute and they were able to accommodate a private tour. Our guide Stefan was so knowledgeable and down to earth. He taught us a lot about he area and the history of Healy and Denali. A few reviews on here mention people being disappointed about not riding in the park. We never expected to because it’s highly illegal. Do your research! This is an incredible cutout surrounded by the park with all the great scenery. I don’t think the group tours would have been our scene but the private tour was so worth it. Highly recommend and highly recommend Stefan!

Such an awesome experience with our group! The 6 of us did side-by-side cars. We went on the 8-11:30pm tour, and it was SO fun riding at night. We did 3 different stops & learned about the town of Haines + Alaska. It was still so bright outside, and at the end of the tour the sun was starting to set. Chris, Jerimiah, & Danny we’re fantastic tour guides. HIGHLY recommend this experience!!!

I've never been interested in this type of thing but decided to try something out if my comfort zone and I'm glad I did! I opted for the two person vehicle to get a steering wheel and it was easy! We drove down trails, over rocks, through puddles and finally across river channels! Others in my group enjoyed the single rider vehicles and one person chose to have a staff member drive her. We all enjoyed the stops where guides shared history of the area. They knew a lot about the geology and were supportive of a new driver. I recommend it!
