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!

Thanks for sharing your review of the evening Anthony! It was a pleasure to meet you, your brother and mom last week. We had a wonderful time sharing a local meal and luminary snowshoe walk with you. And we're so glad your travel plans weren't interrupted and had the good fortune to share in one part of your Alaskan adventure with you. Stay healthy and safe the rest of this spring!

Thank you for sharing Candy! It was a delightful evening for us as well. Your group had so much wonderful energy after the great week you had with the Sierra Club, and we very much appreciated you all brining that energy to our home as well. We hope that it was a wonderful way to finish your visit to Alaska, and we would love for you to return again some day!
