Winter is a big way of life in Interior Alaska. Deep and remote in the Wrangell St. Elias National Park & Preserve, there are Winter Adventures you must experience!
First, flying through the peaks of the Wrangell and Nutzotin Mountain Ranges, with their rugged and majestic ice caps against an incredible blue sky, in a small bush-plane.
Being welcomed warmly and shown to a comfortable cabin to call your own. Sharing home cooked meals with one known as “The Youngest Old-Timer in Alaska” and conversations with and listening to the history of Alaska and our own Chisana from one who had part in making it.
The amazing Aurora Borealis, displaying itself against a true-black sky. Bon-fires and ice fishing, snowmobiling and sledding, snowshoeing and skiing; these are only a few of the Winter Adventures you must experience!
Build an ice-sail with the Guides; camp out at temperatures that have to be felt to be understood (-60℉). Learn to trap, photographing the Northern wildlife and wintertime wilderness.
Come play and enjoy the Winter Adventures you must experience; with Alaska Guides to lead you into the Alaska Wilderness providing knowledgeable companionship and the safety of a lifetime of experience.
Since 1924, and then it was with dog sleds, Pioneer Outfitters has been guiding people into and through the wilds and dangerous country of the Alaska Wilderness.
Riding across the uncut snow of the open tundra of the high mountain passes and the great glaciers of white ice will thrill any adventurer. Running the frozen rivers and creeks for miles, encountering wildlife and climbing high ice shoots.
Untouched by tourism, unmarred by man, this great wilderness was the site of the last historic gold rush and was once the largest log cabin settlement in the state at one time. A wintertime experience that cannot be overlooked is the very real look into what the prospectors and trappers of old times saw when they looked out across this frozen land.
Hot chocolate and hot toddies, roasted marshmallows and biscuits warmed by the bonfire. We gather around the big fires after dinner and enjoy the sharp air and bright neon stars. If the moon is full, we may take a night-ride that will take you to a spot that makes you feel as if you could touch the stars.
Come join us for the Winter Adventures you must experience for a Winter Excursion of a lifetime.
