WILDERNESS PACK TRIPS
Our passion is guiding multi-day wilderness pack trips throughout the Chugach National Forest and the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. Most trips are 3 or 4 days of wilderness adventure. Each day is filled with amazing horseback riding in the backcountry in search of wildlife and special views. Group sizes may accommodate around 8 guests. Trips are all-inclusive; we furnish quality camping gear and delicious camp meals. With our short Alaskan season, we can only offer a few trips such as outlined below. In addition, private family and group trips may be customized to fit your needs. Gives us a call and chat about a dream trip in the Alaskan wilderness.
HORSEBACK CAMPING TRIPS
We specialize in multiday horseback expeditions in wilderness country throughout the Kenai Peninsula. Some of our most common trips are outlined below. Please call for detailed information about our pack trips.
Mornings start with a hardy breakfast and cowboy coffee, help us gather and saddle horses or spend time behind the spotting scope searching for wildlife on the mountainside. Plan on a fun day of riding with the best scenery, wildflowers, and wildlife viewing along thrilling trail riding with our seasoned Alaskan mountain horses. We always make sure your trip is fun and enjoyable.
Back at camp, relaxing in a camp chair and worn out after an unbelievable great day of mountain riding, plan on a big warm campfire and a hearty meal. A full evening of watching for wildlife and the sunset on the mountains (if you are up that late). You can watch the horses feed on good grass with your private tent in the distance, and listen for the sounds and the quiet of the wilderness.
WILDLIFE & SCENERY
Most trips are hosted and guided by Alex Kime. Resurrection Trail, a historical trail from Cooper Landing to Hope, is used to access remote mountain valleys that were used by natives, trappers, hunters and gold miners in the pioneer days. Their old trails are utilized as well as campsites. Wildlife viewing can be hit or miss. We do our best to help you spot wildlife, many of which may be wolves, caribou, moose, brown bear, black bear, sheep, goat, coyote, wolverine, and bird viewing for eagles, hawks, owls, spruce hen and our state bird the ptarmigan. Fishing availability may be an option on custom trips, just ask!
