Come join me on this epic dog sledding experience!

Pet and play with real Alaskan Husky sled dogs
Learn about the 1,000 mile Iditarod and 1,000 mile Yukon Quest

Start your tour by greeting us in our cozy, Alaskan warming tent. Inside you will have plenty of time to get suited up for the cold. Bring the warmest outerwear you have and we’ll supply the rest. Read more about how to dress.
Next, head outside to meet our friendly Alaskan Huskies. Play with them and take photos while we explain why we use this kind of dog and where they came from.
After socializing with the dogs, it’s time to prepare for our 3 mile run! First learn how to harness and hook up sled dogs, then grab your sled and hold on tight! Visitors will get a chance to drive a “tag sled” as well as sit as a passenger in the guide’s sled (see photos below). We’ll stop multiple times on the 3 mile trail so you can take pictures and swap positions between sitting in the guide’s sled and driving the tag sled. When we get back, take some more photos and help us put the dogs back at their houses.
