About Leaf Out Nature Guides
Come take a hike through the boreal forest with us! We give snowshoe based nature tours during the daytime and evening time as well as an ice luminary and dinner experience on select nights of the week. We are a family friendly operation with snowshoes available for kids 4 and up (younger kids are also welcome, but they might prefer being carried some or we have a sled they can ride in). Most tours are 2 hours long and end with a warm cup of locally foraged herbal tea. We also offer completely customizable tour options, so feel free to ask us to find out more!

This is by far one of the best tours I have done, and I travel a lot! Shannon and Evan were so knowledgeable about Alaska snd it’s flora and fauna They made sure we were comfortable and warm throughout the whole tour We not only learned how to snowshoe , but we learned a lot about Alaska This was a blast and a must do! My 11 yr old son loved it!

Thanks Selena, it was such a pleasure to have you and your sister and son out snowshoeing! We were so glad you were interested in the nighttime hike and the aurora made an appearance- there's nothing like moonlight exploring in the snow with the aurora overhead! Let us know if you come back to Alaska in another season!

We had an incredible time snowshoeing through the woods at night with Shannon and Evan. Both Shannon and Evan have a wealth of knowledge about the plant and wildlife in Fairbanks, which made the tour very informative as well as fun. They also had extra gear available to keep us warm even in -32 °F weather! The fantastic tour was capped with a magical appearance by the Aurora Borealis that we were able to see walking back up to the cabin! Definitely an unforgettable experience and a must do in Fairbanks in the winter! -Jimmy and Corey

Thanks Jimmy and Corey, it was so much fun sharing the boreal forest with you! We love getting out and exploring in the moonlight, and the aurora makes it extra special (what a show you got!)! Hope you got some great pictures and fit in your salmon dinner at some point between auroral displays :)

We took a snowshoeing tour with the couple, who were so knowledgeable about the forest. We looked at different vegetation and animal tracks, and walked on snow and frozen streams. Great way to learn about Alaska wilderness and awesome activity while in Fairbanks!

I chose a two hour morning snowshoe tour and it was exactly what I needed! I'm visiting Alaska and have been trying to squeeze in all the popular tourist attractions but this gave me a better view of Alaska in the winter. The air is fresh, and the forest is almost magical. Shannon was our guide and she is full of information and passion for the environment. She brought along delicious warm tea to enjoy in the forest. No phones, no vehicle or city noises, simply peaceful. Get out there and enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful scenery!
