Will you see wildlife?
It’s entirely possible.
Alaska’s abundant wildlife has a way of showing up when you least expected it. Your Glacier ATV Tour incorporates miles of travel through the backcountry, affording you ample opportunity to see and hear wildlife. Wildlife sightings are to be expected. Look, listen and be inspired.
These “chickens” of the forest love to sit still for photos. That is, of course, if you didn’t startle them out of their roost. Nothing gets your heart pumping quite like the burst of wings beating as they fly up unexpectedly from the trail-side brush. But if you see them, and they see you, spruce grouse will sit still for photos all day long.
Want to see Dall Sheep?
We know the secret spot.
Sheep tend to gather on particular, southern-facing outcroppings of rock. We can take you there.
By far one of the most beloved creatures of the forest. Despite their massive size—often larger than a horse—these typically docile herbivores have a way of blending into the forest in silence. Like we always say, just because you didn’t see a moose, doesn’t mean one didn’t see you! Keep your eyes peeled. Moose are a common critter along out routes.
sharing this because…
When spruce grouse hens flutter around or refuse to clear the trail, there’s often little chicks nearby hugging the forest floor, nestled in leaves or under low branches, safe and out of sight. Families of grouse are a common sight, especially near dry patches of ground and gravel.
It’s so easy to keep your head down, focused on the trail ahead of you or every little rock and root. Train your eyes to explore in all directions, including the sky, and we promise, you’ll see all that nature has to offer.
