We did a 2-hour tour in a small group, and it was awesome. The 1st hour was a little bit easier, getting accustomed to riding the snowmobile and terrain, and once the guide dropped off the 1-hr only participants, we were able to go farther and deeper in the terrain and ride in a more aggressive and enjoyable fashion. The guide was great in keeping an eye on the group of 5 snowmobiles. The snowmobile and all the gear were in fantastic shape. Loved the heated grips on the snowmobile. They provide any missing gear including clothing that you may need in case you are not prepared for the cold experience. We did not need anything but noticed many other customers using their clothing to boots as well.

All of our snowmobile adventures are small groups (6 or less snowmobiles). This allows for a safer/better experience. I have multiple maintained trails that allows multiple groups to depart at the same time and go to different places. Thank you for the review.

Great fun! Very informative about the dogs and mushing. Our musher was personable and very knowledgeable. The company had lots of extra warm clothes so you wouldn’t be cold. They people all were very friendly.

My dog sledding trips are fun and educational. Working with our amazing Alaskan Huskies is like no other breed of dog. We encourage guests to ask lots of questions about our 4-legged friends. Thank you for the review.

My mom and I took a trip to Fairbanks for her 60th birthday and riding snow machines were one of the things we wanted to make sure we did. Victoria was our guide and we really enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely be back!

Snowmobiling at Rod's is a safe and fun activity for all ages. I do have a 5 year old minimum age requirement for snowmobiling as a passenger. All drivers must have a valid drivers license to drive. Thank you for the review.

We loved our dog sledding experience. Our driver, Matt, and his dogs, have been very successful in the Iditarod, and it was cool to hear Matt's experience and meet his dogs. Highly recommend this activity!

All of my mushers use their own teams of 4 legged friends. Our guides love sharing their stories of "time on the trails" with their 4-legged friends. Thank you for the review.
