Owner description: Experience the real Alaska with Denali Tundra Tours! Denali Tundra Tours offers both ATV and non-ATV tours, both rated as some of the best tours for sightseeing in the Denali area! Denali Tundra Tours' Alaskan Argo ATV Adventure features the amphibious Argo- locally know as the ATV of Alaska. Look out over the perfect Alaska tourist attraction: Eight Mile Lake, a tundra jewel surrounded by wildflowers. Scan the valley using provided tripod-mounted spotting scopes. Get to know the light-footed mobility of our 2- seated Argo Frontier-580 amphibious ATVs or the comfort and easy handling of a 4-seated Kawasaki Teryx. Enjoy the view from the exclusive comfort of our Pavilion and Viewing Gallery on the wilderness ridge that we call Flat Top. The spotting scopes reveal nearby giant Glacial Erratics. Often times there is wildlife to be seen along the way: caribou, moose, bear, wolf, or ptarmigan. On a clear day, you will be able to view Denali itself. Let Denali Tundra Tours take you there. We host four guided tours daily along the historic Stampede Trail which is surrounded by Denali National Park on three sides. Custom Tours can be arranged. Weather is NOT an issue on the Stampede Wilderness ATV Adventure as the machines are covered and float through any water we encounter. We'll keep you warm and dry while you explore the Alaska taiga and tundra. The Alaskan Tundra Picnic Tour last 3.5 hours and is a van-based tour (non-ATV) and the only historical tour directly north of Denali National Park! On this tour you will visit the historic community of Healy Alaska, nearer to the Denali National Park entrance than any other year-round community. Along the way you will learn local secrets and visit points of interest with plenty of opportunities to get out and take pictures. We’ll pay a visit to Rose’s Cafe to pick up our pie and optional picnic meal before setting out the Stampede Road to see Denali and enjoy the sights at Denali Tundra Tours’ exclusive wilderness pavilion. The site overlooks Eight Mile Lake and Eight Mile Cabin, the only other man-made structures visible within the thousand square mile vista that unfolds from this ridge top perch. Learn about life in a rugged mountain town while scouting for wildlife; relax by our stone fire pit while your knowledgable Alaskan tour guide entertains you with stories and local legends.

An awesome ride through the bogs, mud and un-even tundra. The argos powers through everything and you happily (maniacally) bounce along with it. It's especially fun in a small group with competent drivers, as you get to go as fast and as crazy as you like. This is a really the fun way to view the wilderness. It didn't hurt that it was one of the few days that Mt McKinley was visible in its full glory. There was also plenty of berries to pick on the road. The guide and the rest of the staff are friendly, helpful and great to hang around with.

A day of Dares, Dust and Donuts!

We were originally scheduled to do this trip back in late May, but Alaska's late arriving spring meant that the trail was flooded out. So we rescheduled for this last weekend. The weather cooperated this time, and the wind help to keep the bugs down.
The Argos were not totally what I expected. I've driven a lot of ATV's but these handle differently. It took some getting use to. There's a lot of heat that comes off the engine, so be sure and wear long pants. And you get a work out trying to steer and you get bounced around, so just keep that in mind.
The staff was excellent. The pavilion where you load up on the Argos is nice.
You do spend more time in the woods then on the tundra, but the drive up to the tour is great.
It wasn't all that I expected, but it was still a ton of fun. And where else can you find an Argo ride?!?

It was fun experience of riding an ATV through the wilderness. Both me and my wife enjoyed it. Trails goes through creeks with water and huge mud pits, but Agros can go virtually anyway - they are fully amphibious and can float!
Staff was very nice and friendly. They offer subway lunch at the end of tour.

It's a real wildness adventure, there is a lot of dust, mud and water - so don't put on your suit or prom dress. I'd recommend a pair of jeans and long-sleeve shirt because of mosquitos.
