About Our Guides
Tim Cook, Owner and Guide
Founder and owner of Alaska ATV Adventures and Arctic Air Expeditions is a long time Alaskan who moved up in 1985 from the remote Canadian border area of Minnesota. After spending 15 years working construction in the entire state including many bush communities he decided to start a business that offered off the beaten path options to visitors that his family as well as locals enjoy doing on their off time and Alaska ATV Adventures was born. After hearing many requests from clients on atv tours for more remote trips and the desire to view Polar Bears he used his construction connections to gain access to areas that are off limits to big tour companies and started Arctic Air Expeditions in 2000.
Tim guides most custom trips and Expeditions himself as well as some of the 3 and 4 hour tours close to Anchorage. With new and exciting people to meet from the US and around the world there is never a dull moment!
Sarah, Alaskan Guide
Sarah comes from a long line of Alaskan guides and bush pilots. Her family has a remote wilderness camp 700 air miles West of Anchorage. She lives at the Bird Creek site during the summer and likes to travel in the winter months. Highlights of the summer season are the many wildlife sightings, the diverse clientele and the chance meeting of someone from some place she has visited in her travels.
Andrea and Abbey Cook, Guides
Tim's daughters Andrea and Abbey were born and raised in Alaska. They love the outdoors and have been riding quads since they were 6 years old. Both are into photography, fishing, gold mining and love meeting new people while enjoying the Alaskan outdoors.
Andrea attends the University of Alaska Anchorage and Abbey is in high school in Chugiak, Alaska. They help in the family business when they get time off from their studies.
Reservation / Information Requests
One of Alaska's best kept secrets is within close distance to Anchorage. With no signs marking the trail, most locals don't even know about this area.
Our guided ATV Tours of the Eklutna Lake area begins just 50 minutes north of Anchorage and take you into the heart of the Chugach Mountain Range.
Alaska ATV Adventures is set up with fishing for fresh Silver Salmon at private cabins 225 miles South of Anchorage, near Homer, Alaska.
Alaska ATV Adventures has a lease on a private gold mine in a historic area South of Anchorage. These are private trips with only one family group per day.
