Overview
Travel like the Alaskan pioneers did, in horse-drawn covered wagon, during this 3-hour tour from Healy. Listen to your guide's commentary about the history, culture and environmental features of the area as you travel through the Alaskan tundra. Snap photos of the mountains of Denali National Park looming nearby. Finish your tour with a family-style meal in the heart of the backcountry.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Black Diamond Resort Co. to begin your Alaskan adventure. Alternatively, pickup is available at select Healy-area hotels.

Climb into a covered wagon hitched to a pair of sturdy draft horses. Take off into the Alaskan wilderness, traveling like the pioneers did. Soak in the historic ambiance and imagine the experience of the first Alaskan settlers as you travel in the shadows of nearby Denali National Park's looming mountains. Be sure to bring your camera for impressive photo ops.

After the 45-minute wagon ride, arrive at a pavilion set deep in the backcountry. Sit down for a hearty meal, served family-style. 

Get a chance to meet the hardworking draft horses and take some photos with them, then head back to your starting point, skirting the Denali National Park Boundary. Pass a few rustic Alaskan cabins and listen to your guide's commentary outlining the history of the area as a mining mecca. 

Return to your starting point, where your tour ends.

Off road at it's best

While it was cool and raining, we stayed completely dry in the covered wagon. Our guides were well versed about the area and very friendly. The draft horses were huge and a story in themselves. At the midpoint, the food just coming and was delicious....More

Disappointing

First I want to say Dylan was fantastic. He was very friendly and helpful. However, there was no entertainment. Our guide only spoke of his homeland and we were expecting Alaskan history. The meal was average at best with great confusion. The only entertainment offered...More
