Black Diamond Treasure Hunt Excursion
Ride in an open air Polaris Ranger, seeking for clues in the treasure hunt, which is a specially prepared, and delicious luncheon for guests, at a pavilion in the middle of the woods. Travel through the wood, on old mining paths, looking at Granite rocks for clues. Hop out and walk along the tundra seeking clues or taking in the breathtaking views. Then hop back in and go up Black Diamond Peak to see stunning views of Healy Valley.
The whole tour, everyone is working together with clues to see where to go next. It is an adventure, scenic tour, and exciting learning tour of the landscape. The treasure is then found and everyone sits down to a hearty meal. If you chose an early morning tour, it includes, a "lumber jack" breakfast that feeds hard working crews. Fresh-baked biscuits and gravy, reindeer sausage, flapjacks and more, to get you ready for more adventures. If you choose a lunch or dinner tour, it includes, yummy ribs, steak, chicken and Alaska salmon. All meals includes beverages, including unlimited beer and wines. This tour operates rain, or shine, so please dress accordingly. Wheelchairs are also accepted. Departure Times are 7:30am, 11am, 2:30pm, 6:45pm, 10pm, with a 15 minutes prior to departure arrival.

After a short safety briefing, you'll hop aboard your own Polaris Ranger, outfitted with seat belts, a windshield and cover. It's similar to a small open-air Jeep but sports the exciting flair of an ATV. Then, head out into the wilds of Alaska with your professional guide.
Navigate the back country trails, searching for hidden secrets, granite rocks, and additional clues that bring you closer and closer to finding your treasure: a rustic pavilion in the woods where a camp-style meal awaits.
Traverse old mining paths that spill out onto the Dry Creek River Bed, stop on a whim to take in the surrounding scenery, or walk along the tundra and travel up the side of Black Diamond Peak for spectacular views of the Healy Valley — all the while working together to strategize and plan your next moves. Your guide also fills you in on local history, culture, flora, and fauna throughout.
Soon, it's time to reap the benefits of your treasure hunt: a delicious and hearty meal. Morning tours include a lumberjack breakfast with fresh-baked biscuits and gravy, reindeer sausage, flapjacks and more, while afternoon and evening tours feature mouthwatering ribs, steak, chicken and even fresh-caught Alaska salmon.
