Why take this tour?

Driving your own 4-wheel ATV machine is as close as you can get to being in the Wilds of Alaska. Join your guide on a very personal tour of the Alaskan Wilderness. This adventure has spectacular scenery and you are in control of your own journey. Stop whenever you want, take pictures of the beautiful scenery, laugh as you experience Alaska as it was meant to be, rough and wild! The ultimate back country exploration tour awaits! Join your guide as you drive your own 4-wheel All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) on a truly exciting journey!

Your adventure begins with a safety training and information course. All functions of the machine are thoroughly explained and you have a chance to drive the machine and make sure you are completely comfortable. You will be fitted with all the proper gear. We provide a helmet, safety goggles, gloves, and rain gear if you would like it. Then you are on your way! If you are not comfortable driving the machine, our guide drives an ATV that a passenger can ride with him/her that is equally as exciting as driving your own machine!

This experience takes you back on old coal mining trails and spills you out onto the Dry Creek River Bed where Athabascan Indian artifacts have been found in archaeological digs! Across the river is an authentic broken down abandoned cabin that is very interesting! You will travel past local vegetation while soaking in the breath taking mountain scenery. Photo opportunities abound and you have a great chance of viewing wildlife in their natural habitat. This tour is a great tour for beginning ATV drivers or individuals who have never had an opportunity to experience driving an ATV.

This Tour adds on a great Back Country Meal and really get a unique opportunity to dine in the wild. We have a beautiful backcountry pavilion nestled in the woods with a great chef ready with an awesome meal. Special dietary requests welcome please give us 24 hours notice if you have any special requests.

We recommend dressing for being outdoors and in the elements. There is a possibility of getting dirty while on the trail. *In an effort to reduce the use of single-use plastic water bottles and single use cups, Stampede Excursions and its family of brands ask travelers to bring reusable water bottles and cups. Morning tours feature brewed coffee and evening tours have water available. Cups will be available if you do not have one that is reusable.
The Stampede Trail is prime habitat for moose, caribou, bears, fox, snowshoe hares, many different birds, and much more. Since the animals are wild, we can never guarantee how many animals or which specific animals you will see. Our guides a are always on the lookout and ask for guest participation in spotting creatures along the way. According to the Rangers of Denali National Park: The small outnumber the large. Denali isn't the Serengeti or the Amazon, it's a subarctic environment with mostly small, slow-growing vegetation. That means it takes a lot of acres to feed one good-sized vegetarian, or to provide enough plant-eating animals for one large meat-eater. That's why you won't see a ram, an eagle, a moose, or a wolf around every bend in the road. You do have a good chance of seeing a few big animals. And if you venture off the road, you have a great chance of seeing some of the park's small plant-eaters and the subarctic plants that sustain them.
Bus 142 was removed by the State of Alaska with cooperation with the Alaska National Guard and Denali Borough. Our tour follows the historic Stampede Trail made famous by the book and movie Into the Wild. Guests will get a taste for what Chistopher McCandles encountered on his journey. Due safety concerns associated with river crossings we are unable to make it all the way out to the historic location of the "Magic Bus." Our journey stops just east of the Savage River.
The following policy has been adopted in the interest of providing a safe and enjoyable tour experience and to comply with recently issued guidelines from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
