Alaska Cycling & Craft Beer Tasting
On this exclusive Alaskan adventure, cycle the serene Alaskan wilderness, explore eclectic Alaskan towns, and cool down with crisp, locally brewed craft beer each night! The Alaskan Bike & Beer Tour begins within thick forests of Aspen and Poplar trees. The route traces beautiful rolling paths through the dramatic landscape, leading past green hills, towering peaks, and still blue lakes. The tour takes you from the charming rail town of Talkeetna to the Denali Village, where you can experience breath-taking views of the tallest mountain peak in North America and enjoy the National Park at your leisure. From there, ride the Denali Highway, one of the most scenic highways in the world, to Richardson Highway, the first road ever built in Alaska. As you coast down the highway, you will see the Wrangell's soar in the distances as the vast tundra stretches out alongside you.
This Alaska bicycle tour promises you the thrill of an outdoor adventure with a relaxed atmosphere and comfortable accommodations. Every night, as you soak in the wonders around you, you will be treated to tastings of handpicked craft beer from the best local breweries.

Alaskan Craft Beers
A sampling of brews from Alaska's many varied craft breweries happens each evening before dinner. Some nights we will enjoy a tasting on our lodge's porch, other nights a flite at the local brew pub. Most evenings will focus on the brews from a single brewery.
Frontier Grub & Gourmet Cuisine
Dining on our Alaska trips is one of contrasts. Some evenings our remote lodges offer frontier grub, hearty family cooking that is heavy on meats, fish and potatoes, similar to what early residents survived on. Other nights we dine on outstanding culinary treats with salmon, halibut, garden fresh salads, delightful homemade deserts.
Travelers considering the trip need to be aware that the tour is not vegetarian friendly, as choices at remote lodges may be limited to salad and fries for non meat or fish eaters.
Pedalers provides Fuji Sportif, a lightweight, touring road bike. The bikes are equipped with beefier tires to handle Alaskan roads, disc brakes, dropbars and a wide range of gearing for the rolling terrain.
As a safe health measure, guests are asked to bring their own helmets and waterbottles for cycling.
