Electric Fat Biking Valdez Tour

Experience Valdez with ease on an electric pedal-assist fat tire bike! Explore a small town full of wildlife, surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and history and see why it’s often called Alaska’s ‘Little Switzerland’. Electric pedal-assist fat tire bikes offer the perfect opportunity to explore Valdez for even the most casual of riders. Pedal effortlessly along a flat, paved bike path which is offset from the road and takes you out of town, along coastal wetlands, and over glacier-fed rivers with views of hanging glaciers, mountains, and waterfalls.

Your friendly, knowledgeable guide will share the history of this small town, from the Gold Rush to the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake, to the present day and the oil pipeline terminal. Along the way, learn about the natural history of the area, fishing industry, see salmon jumping up the fish ladder (in mid to late summer), watch eagles soaring overhead and sea otters, seals, sea lions and perhaps even a bear loitering along the shoreline.

I went to Anchorage off season and Elly was accommodating and out together a great MTB ride for me. She is knowledgeable about the history and wildlife in the area. It was the highlight of my trip. I cannot recommend Alaska Trail Guides enough.

This was a must do adventure for anyone visiting Anchorage....went for a Fall tour with girlfriends and we had a wonderful time. Our tour guide,Elly, was very knowledgeable about Anchorage and the terrain. We did a nine mile tour, we are in our late 60s with limited experience biking. We had no problems at all -it was so much fun.

Went this morning with guide Elly who also happens to be an owner of this company. Had an outstanding time. She was well knowlegable about Anchorage history and Alaska in general. We saw two eagles and three Moose, baby, mamma, and a male bull. It was awesome. Today's date is 9/21/2020. A bit chilly but it was do able. Due to Covid and the time of year, it was just me and she didnt cancel. She gave me the full tour experience. I highly recommend this tour for anyone.

So cool! We visited in August 2020 and this was our first activity since arriving in Anchorage. Elly was knowledgeable and made it super fun. We may or may not have gotten stuck on some rocks but it was the hardest laugh I’ve had in awhile! We also got to see 2 moose and a coyote so we definitely felt like we had the full experience of wildlife and mountains!
