Winter Adventures

Come enjoy our Sno-go* Paradise, we have miles and miles of groomed trails including the historic Iditarod Trail.

Hooking up with a good rental sled and experienced guide can turn into an adventure of a lifetime. In just about every corner of Alaska there are sno go’s, they are used for work and for fun. "Fun" is the key word here! Facts are that most folks believe that Alaska is really “Seward’s Icebox” when in fact our region is blessed with a warmer average temperature then a good portion of the lower 48 states (but let's keep that a secret).


Hopping on an Alaska bush plane viewing the sights while being transported will get you excited enough. But that's just the beginning. Getting to the Roadhouse and nestling up to a warm wood stove enjoying some hot chocolate or having wine or hot toddies, while enjoying the camaraderie and delectable cuisine of the Skwentna Roadhouse staff – a small family owned & operated Alaskan lodge – is well within your grasp.


Contact us through our email or call and we will be glad to plan your trip & quote pricing. We look forward to your visit.
