Winter Glacier Snowmobile Tour

Your guided winter snowmobile tour begins by meeting your guides in Girdwood, the winter paradise of Alyeska Ski Resort, just a short 45 minute drive from Anchorage. We provide you with all the riding gear head to toe that you’ll need to be warm and safe while riding your top-of-the line snowmobile. After getting dressed we will transport you 10 miles  down the road to the trailhead for orientation and brief riding instruction. For your riding pleasure, we groom over 14 miles of trail out to Spencer Glacier. Once at the glacier you’ll have time to explore ice caves and icebergs, eat a homemade lunch, and enjoy a hot beverage. This years ice caves and structures are some of the most exciting we’ve seen in the 19 years we’ve been guiding to them.

During your trip, you may see glaciers, moose, eagles, porcupines, ptarmigan, lynx, or wolves. Bring your camera as you will want to share your adventure with your friends.

If we are unable to ride to the glacier we will automatically go to the  amazing winter wonderland of Turnagain Pass. The towering mountains and winding rivers make for phenomenal picture opportunities. We take the time to lay an engaging trail winding through the lush forest, over rivers and into the natural terrain park for riders to tryout jumps, side hilling and races. This tour will surely amaze!

Customer Testimonials

I recently went on a tour with Greatland Adventures and it exceeded all my expectations. As a seasoned traveler I must say, this company surpassed any other company I have ever toured with. Steve Busby was able to answer every question I had (and believe me I had plenty.) He was so knowledgeable about everything from wildlife (plants, animals, berries, terrain) to Alaskan culture. I learned so much it was amazing! Another highlight was seeing so many animals, Steve has an eagle eye for finding animals that no one else noticed. I have nothing but great things to say about this company, they truly go beyond the call of duty to make sure you have an unforgettable experience. I have recommended them to all my friends and family, and hope that everyone has a chance to experience a tour with this awesome company at some point in their lives. I guarantee you won't regret it!
We are seasoned travelers who have never taken the time to provide reviews before but we feel obliged to share how extraordinary our experience was with Greatland Adventures. We found them on TripAdvisor when planning our long weekend in Anchorage and the customized service began from the first phone call - rather than just telling us what we should do, they began asking questions about what was most important to us. We ended up using Greatland Adventures for two out of our three full days in Anchorage and can't recommend them highly enough. Steve Busby was our tour guide and he squeezed in everything we asked for - and more!...You should feel confident in choosing Greatland Adventures over the other larger tour companies. It was a great value, our guide was extremely knowledgeable, they provided safe and accommodating transportation everywhere, and most importantly the staff is genuine & dependable and very committed to making your trip as AMAZING as possible.
Wow, what can I say about Greatland? I guess I will tell you as my boyfriend and I heard from other tour guides from different companies: 'Steve Busby is the best in the business!' So true. This guy is as professional as they come, and in high demand. He really takes the time to show you what Alaska is all about. I feel honored to have been guided on a custom private tour by someone who is a true Alaskan and knows his stuff. He was so knowledgeable, patient (especially with a couple of newbie hikers as ourselves!), and fun! We had a blast! If you are looking for THE BEST tour company in Alaska, look no further. Greatland Adventures is it. This is the gold standard of tour companies for sure.
Steve was amazing. Easy going, super sensitive to our needs and went the extra mile to make sure we were all comfortable in the freezing cold. He's also incredibly knowledgeable about the area and provided a truly exceptional experience. Also great prices!! Highly highly recommend.
