Experience Alaska’s iconic summer nights


True Alaskan adventure awaits on this unique Denali ATV experience. The Midnight Sun ATV adventure is truly an experience you can only get in the far reaches of the world. Operating just from Early June to Early August, this once-in-a-lifetime tour takes advantage of Alaska’s iconic midnight sun from the late sunsets surrounding the summer solstice. Perfect for experienced or novice riders, you can hop on a single ATV or cruise along with your group in a side-by-side at speeds up to 30 miles per hour. This Denali ATV tour lasts 1.5 hours, covering 10 miles in total, with the orange light of the setting sun illuminating this spectacular landscape. Surrounded by Denali National Park, you’ll have unlimited views of the Alaska Range, Healy Valley, and more.

The Midnight Sun ATV Adventure begins nightly at 9:00 PM with pickup from convenient locations throughout the local area. Upon reaching the guide headquarters, you will be outfitted with safety gear, taught the basics of operating your ATV, and be given a thorough safety briefing to prepare you for your adventure. From here, you’ll hop into your vehicles for 10 miles of rugged Alaska wilderness. Look around at the stunning alpenglow illuminating the Alaska Range and shadows cast in orange light. We offer single ATVs and side-by-sides holding two, three, four, or six guests in total, so you can find the combination that fits every adventurer in your group. After 1.5 hours of zooming or just cruising, your Denali ATV tour ends with a convenient drop-off right to the hotel or local spot your guides picked you up from. Ending after 2.5 hours in total, this iconic way to truly see the “Land of the Midnight Sun” books up fast, so reserve your seats early!


How to Book: When booking your Midnight Sun ATV Adventure, rather than selecting the number of guests in your party, please select the number and size of ATVs you would like for your group. Our ATVs range in size from single-rider to 6-person vehicles. You will pay a per-vehicle fee. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to our agents for clarity or to secure your booking!

Frequently Asked Questions

How old do you need to be to participate in this tour?

How large can groups be? Is there a minimum of people to join this group?
There is a minimum of two and a maximum of twelve vehicles per tour. For larger groups, a middle guide will be provided to ensure the safety and comfort of all participants. This additional guide will help ensure that everyone can enjoy the tour without any worries.
Does my booking include transportation?
Round-trip transportation is included with your booking from a selection of nearby hotels and locations. We will provide you with exact details once you have booked and paid for the tour.
Is there a minimum age for driving the ATVs?
Anyone over 18, or 16 with parental consent, can drive one of the single ATVs, provided they have a valid driver's license. To drive the side-by-sides, you must be 21 (or 18 with parental consent) and possess a valid driver's license.
Will I get dirty? Do I need to dress in a specific way?
While how dirty you'll get depends on your speed and the weather conditions of the day, it's safe to say you'll get quite messy. To ensure you're prepared for the tour, dress appropriately in closed-toe shoes, long pants, and multiple layers to keep warm. Also, remember to bring a waterproof jacket to stay dry, as Alaskan weather can be unpredictable.
What if I need a restroom stop during the tour?
There are no restroom facilities along the trail, just Mother Nature. If you need assistance, alert the nearest guide with hand signals, and they will direct you to a suitable area.
Can we see Denali from the trail?
Unfortunately, due to the positioning of the trails along the majestic Alaska Range, the awe-inspiring Denali is not visible.
What if I have never been on an ATV before? Can I still drive?
The tour guides will provide a comprehensive training course before embarking on the trail. If any party members feel uncomfortable driving after the introduction, we will pair you with another group or the guide in a side-by-side vehicle.
