What to expect

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.

Leisurely way to enjoy the beautiful Alaskan backcountry
Aug 2021
We did the Draft Horse Drawn Covered Wagon and Dining excursion. The ride was as comfortable as you could hope for a covered wagon and the draft horses were beautiful and well behaved. The driver and guide were terrific. We started at a relatively high elevation and traveled through country with spectacular views of mountains and forests down to a shallow river with a gravel bed that was fun to explore. The river meandered around the base of a tall hill with a sheer face with exposed gravel, indicating that the hill was a large gravel mound created during the last glacier period. from there we wagoned to a spacious log lodge in the low land for lunch, and from there back to the main lodge. We recommend this excursion as a leisurely way to enjoy the beautiful Alaskan backcountry.

Kids loved the ride and food.

Antonio - our guide and Lexi - our driver were both very knowledgeable as well as sweet. They did a great job. We traveled back through the backcountry and Antonio explained all about the terrain, animals, and history of the area. The horses were absolutely beautiful. We had Maverick and Ace - 2 very different personalities. The lunch was amazing with delicious entrees, sides, and dessert.

Great hospitality! Food was amazing and generous. It’s nice that alcohol was included. Trip was a little different than advertised because of COVID. You complete the whole ride before your meal, so don’t arrive absolutely starving but they gave us warm cookies, snacks and beverages on the wagon ride so we were happy and comfortable. Nice people and very accommodating

Our family of 5 LOVED every second of our wagon ride and meal. Our guide was Kate and our driver was Alexis(?) and both of them rocked. The ride was peaceful and the views were spectacular. The food is served family-style and was fast and well-prepared.
