Rides in the Birchwood Countryside


Travel through the beautiful Birchwood countryside by sleigh or wagon.

The company has a sleigh, which can seat 2 to 4 adults, and two bob sleds that seat from 12 to 20 adults. The sleigh rides travel through the Birchwood countryside and over a one-lane wooden bridge that crosses Peters Creek, adding excitement, romance and nostalgia. Wagon rides are also available with seating for 20 to 30 people. These offer an experience for group outings or neighborhood parties.


Following the ride there is an area for an after-ride bonfire and old-time wiener roast along side a glacial stream. Longer rides travel into the Chugach Mountains offering inspirational and panoramic views of Cook Inlet and the magnificent Talkeetna Mountains, Mt. Susitna, and Denali.
