Customized Horse Trips:
Guests may choose any single or combination day trail ride or overnight horse pack trip depending on time with
Alaska Trailblazers. We recommend a Day Trek to start - becoming familiar with your horse and the river and mountain terrain.
Overnight Treks require travelling approximately 5 to 8 hours from Wood River Camp to Sheep or Painted Mountain Camp. Planning
for a least one day stay and two overnights at each of these camps is recommended. Guest always have the option to skip horseback
riding altogether and opt for other activities.
We follow the natural game trails which require some trailblazing during our journeys. There are no groomed trails
in Alaska’s backcountry – crossing the river and creeks, maneuvering through tundra, tussocks, rocks and brush along with
unpredictable mountain weather make each horse trip challenging and memorable. Your guides will make every effort to make
you comfortable and safe on all journeys.
4 Day Horse Trip:
Includes 4 days and 3 nights on the trail, the evening on the 4th Day you arrive at Wood River Camp
spending that night and 1 additional day and night in Camp (total 5 days & 5 nights). Difficulty depends on weather, water
levels and trail conditions. This trip is for those expecting a more extreme trail ride with multiple river crossings,
a mountain pass, tundra, bog, riverbed rocks and thick brush… all part of this wild adventure. Bonds are formed with horses,
trailmates and nature. A truly unforgettable experience.
