Top 7 Reasons for a Horseback Adventure

There are so many reasons for an Alaskan Adventure, to be sure. Alaska has an incredibly special pull for people searching for something missing in most lives today.

The wild.

I would like to share with you the top 7 reasons for a Summertime Horseback Adventure in photos as well as a list.

Top 7 Reasons for a Horseback Adventure

The reasons I will share with you today are the top 7 reasons I have heard from guests and clients over the years that brought them to Pioneer Outfitters and Chisana, Alaska.

Of these 7 reasons, you may or may not find your own reason for searching, you may have a reason that you may not even be capable of describing. (I have a hard time, sometimes, describing the incredible presence the Alaska wilderness has in my own life!)

Top 7 Reasons

  • A love of the wonderful outdoors.
  • A wish to explore something, some place, “Off the Beaten Path.”
  • A  love or passion for photography and the opportunities to photograph the wild and free critters of Alaska. Not from the road or a bus tour, but in person, in their environment, natural and untouched by man or progress.
  • An interest in our historical past. The undisturbed, visible and living history of the Last Historic Gold Rush.
  • The belief that the native shamans and medicine men of the old clans of Alaska, understood, knew and felt things about where to find peace, where to go to be closer to the spirits of the ancestors and Higher Power that guide us and free us from our own puzzlement and worries.
  • A wish to ride out, away from people, traffic, worries, phones and interruptions. To be able to think your own thoughts and to feel the days and nights of obligations and worries fall away and rediscover your own strength and center.
  • To want an Adventure of a Lifetime doing something so different and inspiring, to make memories that will bolster you in dark times, to discover new pieces of your self, your own wonder of the beautiful world that surrounds us, even today. To be safe and guided along and through the untraveled land that remains here, waiting for you to be the first.

Top 7 Reasons for a Horseback Adventure

  • A love of the wonderful outdoors.

The outdoors and wild areas of the world call to us as humans. The Alaska wilderness is as the entire world was at one time, free and unmarred by man or progress.

  • A wish to explore something, some place, “Off the Beaten Path.”

Wanting something different than the cookie-cutter-albums and videos that all the neighbors or friends have to show for such a grand adventure.

  • A  love or passion for photography and the opportunities to photograph the wild and free critters of Alaska. Not from the road or a bus tour, but in person, in their environment, natural and untouched by man or progress.

With Professional Guides at your side the entire time, you will be able to spot, stalk and photograph wild animals safely. These are wild animals, not critters familiar with humans and the trash or food generally found near them.

  • An interest in our historical past. The undisturbed, visible and living history of the Last Historic Gold Rush.

Be an actual part of the living history that Chisana is a part of. See the remains of the last historic gold rush of 1913 and the boom that named Chisana the largest log-cabin settlement in Alaska. Speak with the descendants of the frontiersmen and women and miners who hold permits from the National Park to continue mining for gold. Learn how and why they do what they do in person as you pan for gold yourself.

  • The belief that the native shamans and medicine men of the old clans of Alaska, understood, knew and felt things about where to find peace, where to go to be closer to the spirits of the ancestors and Higher Power that guide us and free us from our own puzzlement and worries.

Experience the peace and restoration that comes from the Spiritual Retreat to Medicine Man Mountain and feel the ancient healing force and soothing presence that drew the Native clans to the Chisana Valley so long ago.

  • A wish to ride out, away from people, traffic, worries, phones and interruptions. To be able to think your own thoughts and to feel the days and nights of obligations and worries fall away and rediscover your own strength and center.

Pioneer Outfitters has called Chisana home since its birth in 1924. Chisana is a very remote, fly-in area that has remained untouched and unspoiled by the rush and hurry of life today.

The conveniences of the abilities to connect and to be connected are a pleasure to be sure, but most people know from experience it is hard to dis-connect and almost impossible to take a real break from all the obligations that come as payment.

The horses are the original anti-stress remedy and the silence of the wilderness allows the pressures and responsibilities to fade until you realize that the air is crisp and clean, the horse’s stride is long and smooth and the “silence” isn’t as quiet as it first seemed; water flowing over rocks, bird sounds and the wind blowing through the trees are combining to create a wilderness music.

  • To want an Adventure of a Lifetime doing something so different and inspiring, to make memories that will bolster you in dark times, to discover new pieces of your self, your own wonder of the beautiful world that surrounds us, even today. To be safe and guided along and through the untraveled land that remains here, waiting for you to be the first.

Once you experience Chisana and all the true gifts of Alaska, you will know. The wilderness gives us all the gift of strength; strength of spirit, strength of body and the strength of mind.

Knowing your guide is there to ensure your safety and to lead and teach you of your surroundings, you will experience something few others ever have the opportunity to even witness.

Go home feeling renewed and ready to take on the world (How can you not, after fully experiencing the adventure of Alaska?!) Not exhausted and wishing for a vacation to recover from your vacation, but stronger, leaner and happier than ever before.

We are waiting for you, a friend we have yet to meet. To make memories that will last forever, for you and for us. Let us show you the Last Frontier, as it was meant to be seen, on horseback.
