Highly recommend Rod's Alaskan Guide Service! Rod was very friendly and his son, Rodney, was a great guide! The equipment was top notch and they had everything needed to keep warm in February. Will definitely go back on our next visit to Fairbanks!

Outer layers to keep you warm are included on all of my snowmobile and dog sledding tours. Thank you for making Rod's a part of your Alaskan vacation.

Even with the poor snow quality, our snowmobile tour was awesome! The trail was so fun. Tour lasted a full hour; machines were great. Would have loved to maybe just have the tour be 50 to 55 minutes, and then we could have stopped a couple of times for pictures to make it

Interior Alaska's snow melted almost a month early this year. My dog sledding and snowmobile tours are now closed for the 2018/19 season. We will reopen for the 2019/20 season in November or when we have 8 inches of snow. We still have lots of ice and will ice fish for about another week--until early April 2019. Thank you for the review.

We took the 2 hour snowmobile excursion and loved every minute of it. After gearing us up in warm clothes we were off! It was 4 of us ranging from 60-68 years of age and we all absolutely loved it. We went through woods, fields, onto lakes and by the side of lakes. All fantastic

Just came back from my trip and absolutely loved the snow mobiles. Dakota was a great tour guide and tended to our needs if needed... we didn't need much since my group of 3 and I knew what we were doing. For our group time, we just rode through the woods and trails. That alone
