On your ATV you will visit the historic remote 1959 Devore family homestead with Dennis Devore, an original family member. Learn how these hardy pioneers survived the harsh conditions of Alaskan homesteading. You can drive your own ATV or ride a comfortable ATV-drawn covered wagon as the homestead is accessible only by trail. Guests may try gold panning on the homestead quarter at Wiggle Creek. Lunch is included. Photo opportunities of Mt. McKinley.

This adventure takes you into the back country of Alaska. The ride is amazing, and the stops along the way, and the background stories, bring Alaska alive. One of three top adventures we had in our 11 days in Alaska

Mid August is a great time to be in Talkeetna. When we booked our three "senior" couples ATV wilderness adventure with Dennis the ladies decided that, not having driven an ATV, they would ride with the guys. With a little coaxing the ladies chose to...More

I traveled with 2 teens and we were all single riders but I'm sure Dennis would provide for younger kids on this adventure; his ATV was large enough for his German Shepard to ride along - so know there is room. Enjoy!
