ALASKA BACKCOUNTRY EXPLORER
This is the most challenging dual-sport adventure we offer in the 49th state. Some of our staff lovingly refer to this as our Captain Kick-Ass Tour as it was developed to bring experienced ADV riders deep into the remote wilderness of Alaska. Water-crossings, two-track trails, large rocks, and some mud are par for the course. We’re taking the adventure touring rigs way beyond the coffee shop.
Road Conditions: Paved roads and gravel roads are the main. The out-rides are two-track jeep trails and four-wheeler tracks with rocks, mud and water crossings.
