Absolutely amazing experience. The directions were clear and there were signs as you approached the site telling you where to park and where to walk to. The drive there was scenic and beautiful and we were lucky enough to have clear skies to catch the Aurora! CJ was an absolute pleasure; informative, educated, polite, and a great cook! Inside the cabin it gets warm and cozy and you wouldn't know you are spending 5 hrs with strangers from very different backgrounds because very quickly everyone warmed up to each other and we had such a great time. The fishing is easy and fun and you don't need any experience. Cody made sure to let us know what kind of fish they were and the depths of the water and had answers for all of our questions. Highly recommend this experience with Rod's Alaskan Guide Service!

Myself and my family went on the 1 hour snowmobile tour with Rod Junior and it was fantastic with a capital F! The lodge you start at is lovely and clean, and the equipment was great - heated helmet and handle bars, and outer gear provided to keep you warm - tip: also wear plenty of layers underneath. The tour itself is breathtakingly beautiful - down a large open path and into the woods and over frozen waterways. It was fun, fun, fun and the whole family said it was the highlight of our Alaska trip. They are professional and friendly and know exactly how to keep you safe but ensure you experience the rush of zipping along at pace on a snowmobile. Do not leave town without doing this.

This was a great experience. CJ was great and took care of everything. The hut was plenty warm. The sausage was delicious and the fish we caught was cooked. CJ took care of cleaning and cooking the fish. The aurora was slightly visible but not spectacular but that's the way it goes sometimes. It was a fun night with the 3 other people that were in the tour. I would definitely recommend this company for ice fishing.

Had a great time. I basically had a private tour since I was the only rider. I had a problem with my helmet not defrosting. Aaron was able to fix it by replacing the damaged cord. The heated handle bars were great at keeping my hands warm. I would recommend using their boots, bibs and gloves if are concerned about what you have. I had on lined snowboarding pants and the became wet I guess from the heat of the engine and snow melting. My tour was at 10am in january and it was pretty cold. By the end of the 2 hours I was cold. Take the clothes they have available. I give this tour a 4.5 out of 5 only because there was a problem with the helmet. I would recommend this tour with this company.

For a quick-easy fix; the guides carry spare helmet cords in case a cord breaks--which happens occasionally in cold temps. Thank you for the review.

We booked snowmachine, dog sledding and ice fishing/ Aurora viewing excursions with Rod everything was great, we didn’t get to see the Aurora that night because it was cloudy but everything was top notch! The reindeer sausage is great, and Cody was a wonderful host while fishing.
