Return Details

Returns to original departure point
After hotel pickup in Healy or meeting at the Black Diamond Resort Co, your guide provides an introduction to the ATV operations and a safety briefing.

Get fitted with the provided gear, including helmet, safety goggles, gloves and rain gear as needed, then practice driving your Polaris ATV. Basic driving skills are required to handle the ATV, but no specific ATV experience is necessary. 

When you're ready, follow your guide on an exciting off–road tour. If you are not comfortable driving, you can ride with your guide for an equally exhilarating ATV experience.

Travel along old coal mining trails and a dry creek bed where Athabascan (Native American) artifacts have been found. Stop to check out an old abandoned cabin, then continue through the wilderness with spectacular views of the Alaska Range and mountain scenery. Go high up on Black Diamond Peak for sweeping views of the entire Healy Valley and keep an eye out for wildlife.

Your tour includes a backcountry meal of fresh–baked biscuits and gravy, bacon, reindeer sausage, fresh fruit, home-style flapjacks, fresh scrambled eggs and more. During afternoon and evening tours, sink your teeth into mouth-watering ribs, chicken, steak and salmon fresh from the coastal waters of Alaska, plus baked beans and potato salad. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a delicious fruit cobbler for dessert. Juice, coffee, tea and hot chocolate accompany the meal, and alcoholic beverages are available for purchase.

At the end of your meal, hop back on your ATV for the return journey. Your tour ends with return to your starting point at the end of three hours.

A super fun tour made better by an outstanding guide!

A real highlight of our stop in Denali! After many really great but passive sightseeing tours over the last week, this was an invigorating experience. It was made all the better with our leader/guide, Igor. Having never driven an ATV before, I was a bit hesitant but Igor put our minds at ease and did a great job orienting us to our vehicle and the first part of the trip gave us a great opportunity to get comfortable with ATV. Igor is super personable, knowledgeable and friendly. Loved his commentary about things we saw on our stops: Moose trails, Labrador plants, and Dry Creek to name a few as well as the Usibelli coal mine. And the lunch at the end of our trip was the best meal we had our entire stay in Denali. Every staff person we engaged with was friendly and accommodating. An outstanding tour! Thank you for a great time.

Great back country ATV ride

I had a wonderful experience. Lots of bumps, puddles, streams, awesome views and a few Moose sightings. Since I haven’t ridden a ATV in a long while, it was like a new great experience. Take a deep breath and do it. The young lady guide was great. My Age 66 female.

What a wonderful experience!!! This is our very 1st time trying this kind of adventure and we are so happy we booked it. The Black Diamond staff are excellent from the owner Marilyn, the manager and our guides Sophie and Victoria ( sorry girls for causing problem). And lastly the food ….. thank you for the experience and will definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

Rip off

When we booked this tour it was on things to do in anchorage. When we called the day before to find out when we would be picked up we were told it’s 5.5 hours away so obviously they are not picking us up and also not refunding us since the trip was within 24 hours. What a rip off.

We are a small family business in Healy, Alaska near Denali National Park. I've looked at our listing and I've looked everywhere on the web and there isn't anywhere that I can find our business that says things to do in Anchorage. If trip advisor has that please contact them as we do not have control over what they post about us. We have been in business for 28 years and always been located in Healy, Alaska near Denali national Park. Trip advisor has an extremely generous cancellation policy of 24 hours. My personal policy is 72 hours but again I can't control what they do so I honor their policies. I'm sorry you didn't look to see where we were located before or even after you booked your tour but blaming us for your mistake is unkind. I wish you all the best. We give our guests 100% and we are located in Healy, Alaska since 1995. Happy travels..

Decent course/incredible lunch

The backcountry roads they use are limited by the boundary of the park. The coolest place they go is through a river bed and next to a glacial gravel deposit. But what the course may lack, the lunch they made for and then some! The food was amazing and just kept coming. I would use this company again!

This was actually the first time that I was the driver of a 4 wheel ATV. I was so grateful that the guide was willing to wait for me to catch up 🤣. I’m sure the other riders were not as thrilled with me coming up the rear and slowing them down 🤨😆. The lunch provided after the 3 hour tour was delish 😋
