Beginner snowshoe tour!

From the moment I was picked up from the Egan center, I was welcomed with warm greetings and a lovely tour guide (Leah). The Chugach park and surrounding areas were not only beautiful, but the snow shoe experience added a cherry to the icing! I was able to take many phenomenal photos and given a nice history lesson. And, I was also able to taste crow berries while experiencing this tour. The air up there and the scenery is unmatched. 🙂

Fantastic Morning in the Chugach Mountains
Robert_C

My daughter and I spent a fantastic morning with Gregg in the Chugach Mountains above Anchorage. It was a crisp, sunny day and the scenery was spectacular. Gregg was an extremely pleasant and knowledgeable guide who was attuned to our interests and ability levels, and we both enjoyed talking with him as we tromped through the snow in this beautiful setting. He had a very relaxed, easygoing style and we both felt comfortable with him almost immediately. It was clear that he loved what he was doing and enjoyed sharing it with others. He made a point of taking pictures of us together, despite the fact that his hands must have been freezing. He also provided a great recommendation for dinner that evening--best meal of the trip. It was a completely satisfying experience and one of the highlights of our late winter visit to Alaska.

Our guides on this tour were very knowledgeable and friendly. They even took the time throughout to adjust the trek based on our comfort level. They made snowshoeing through the mountains a blast. Highly recommend this tour.

Thank you Malcolm! The moose, sun, and friendly conversations shared with you and Lilley were the highlight of my day. It was great meeting you both. Enjoy Alaska, and have a safe trip back to Florida!

⭐ The highlight of our trip to Anchorage! ⭐

Do yourself a favor and book this tour! You will not regret it! Matt is an excellent guide---super personable, patient, knowledgeable, and prepared. The snowshoeing experience itself was MAGICAL! The morning sunlight danced across the sparkling white snow as we trekked our way across the beautiful natural landscape. Some of the views were just breathtaking! Our group was mixed in terms of age and skill level (a teenager, a senior citizen, and me - mid-30s). Matt adapted the experience for each of us, so that everyone was able to participate at a level where we felt comfortable. He also took some great pictures for us. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Anchorage! And it can be yours too. Highly recommend! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Matt, Was amazing. He was patient and helpful with me. He provided everything you need to explore in snow shoes. Not only was he our guide, but he was a good source of interesting information. He knows everything about Alaska outside. So, Go Hike Alaska!
