We’ll ride to the top of some mountains, over river ice and through the wilderness. The wildlife that we come across will amaze you. The pristine views of the untouched, vast land will inspire you.

Family WInter & Spring VacationsSnow shoeing and ice fishing are also very Alaskan Wintertime hobbies and pastimes that we all certainly enjoy. Sledding and dog-sled rides are also great family fun.

When we are out playing in the snow, we’ll find a spot, stop, build a camp fire and have lunch, toasted or not, the fire feels good. It never fails to give everyone a chance to re-charge for the afternoon.

Pioneer Outfitters, since its beginning, has lived and operated here in Chisana year-round. There are no finer guides than those trained by Pioneer Outfitters Survival & Guide Training to assure your safety and enjoyment in the Alaska wilderness.

  1. That sounds like a fantastic vacation, too. Are the Northern Lights visible all year, or only during the winter?

    • Brian! (I took pictures for you yesterday! Frankie-Blue-eyes is doing great!)
      The Northern Lights are there, just not visible during the Summer months as it is too light. During August we begin to see them again. I actually took some fabulous pictures last August of the Northern Lights.
      Thank you for checking in on us!

  2. Alaska is certainly a beautiful place and it sounds like you offer a very nice vacation package. I can only imagine the wildlife that is seen while dog sledding or snowmobiling through the wilderness there.

    • Shellie, (glad to meet you!)

      It took my breath away the day I arrived in Alaska and it has done the same every day since (over 20 years now!). We do try. The people that come to us are what makes every single thing we do, come alive.

      The Wintertime adventures are so different in some ways than Summer and Fall, and not only because of the horses or lack of them, but because the entire landscape is different. It is a magical place. I feel as if it is incredibly spiritual during the Summer and Fall. The Winter is pure magic.

      Thanks for stopping in and I hope you’ll be back!
