Horseback Fitness Adventure

Each year, we hear from more and more people from all over the world, who have decided that a “fitness vacation” is either the only way to break free of the toxic and destructive habits that have led to an unhealthy lifestyle or exactly the jump-start they want instead of the fad-diet routines and boring gym memberships.

Our 21-Day Horseback Fitness Adventure is exactly what so many people are looking for.

Exclusive and an Adventure unlike any other is exactly what this is.

Have you said to yourself, “If I could only get a head start.” “If I could just get away from myself and have to a real chance to begin.” “If I could only get a strong start.” ~ I have said all of those things.

With Pioneer Outfitters by your side every step of the way, you will spend 21 days experiencing the glorious wilderness on a scale above and beyond anything most people have ever encountered.

The Chisana Valley is a unique area, the site of the last historic gold rush and considered a deeply spiritual place to the people who have lived and visited.

From your arrival in Chisana, you are treated as family. Welcomed and celebrated for the momentous decision that you have made to “Be Fearless” and live the life of your dreams in a healthier, happier way.

The Horseback Fitness Adventure is for novice as well as experienced riders and horsemen and women.

We match your individual abilities to the horse that will be your companion on your Adventure.

The uniqueness of our range horses that have spent their lives in the wilderness of the Wrangell Mountains is their inherent knowledge of the trails and how to handle themselves as well as their rider, in any terrain.

Horses have a special connection to humans.

Their deeply insightful knowledge of what we are feeling and understanding us better than we seem to understand ourselves at times is uncanny. Their gentle acceptance of exactly who we are in that precise moment is something so many people never get to experience.

When you leave us at the end of your Adventure of a lifetime, you will have an incredible amount of respect and a soft spot in your heart for these amazing horses.

Using horses in the difficult Alaska terrain allows us to provide our guests with comfortable camps, plenty of good food and of course, gives us a beautiful viewpoint for the spectacular places you will be riding in.

Horseback riding is the best full-body workout that can be had for so much enjoyment as well as had from sitting on your butt!

However it is hard work.

You may not even realize it, as we ride, but it is and that is why on each break, your guides will join and help you to stretch and loosen back up each time you stop for a break or rest.

For 21 Days, you will stretch, ride, walk and eat in the most glorious and magnificently exclusive mountain wilderness in the Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve.

At over 13 million acres, the Wrangell St. Elias is the largest unit in the National Park System as well as the most unexplored, exclusive and road-less mountain areas in the world.

Together with Kluane National Park Reserve in the Yukon Territory of Canada, Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park in British Columbia, and Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve was been designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations.

Since 1924, Pioneer Outfitters has lived and operated far and away from the hustle and bustle of other Alaskan destinations, surrounded by the exclusive and remote wild Alaskan Wilderness, guiding clients and guests into and through some of the most beautiful and rugged land in the world.

You are not alone! Your guides will be laughing, stretching, exercising, riding and camping right along beside you every day.

We will be riding up amazing creeks, with the looming mountains unlike anything most people have ever witnessed, hiking up glaciers, photographing the incredible wildlife, enjoying fabulous bonfires and great meals together.

You will benefit in so many ways from your Horseback Fitness Adventure, upon returning home.

You will find yourself feeling refreshed, focused and energized. You will look and feel incredible and strong and have a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm for life.
