MULTI DAY DOG SLEDDING ADVENTURES
4-7 Days | January - April
Our multi-day dog sledding expeditions take you to little-known, magical places in Interior & Arctic Alaska, the traditional lands of the Dena & Inupiat peoples. We weave together time with Siberian Huskies, pristine wilderness areas, Alaskan-style meals, cozy accommodations, and abundant opportunities for Northern lights viewing.
AURORA OVERNIGHT TOURS
3 Days | November - April
The perfect Alaskan dog sledding experience -- drive your own dog team over the frozen summits and snow laden forests of the White Mountains National Recreation Area to a hand built log cabin complete with a view. One of the best places on earth to view the northern lights.
ETHICAL DOG SLEDDING PRACTICES
On an Arctic Dog Adventure Co. small group husky safari, you will gain a caring and genuine dog sledding experience, one that highlights ethical mushing practices, and celebrates a life lived in cooperation and partnership with dogs.
Arctic Dog Adventure Co. was founded in 2016 by Iditarod musher Lisbet Norris and wildlife biologist Nils Pedersen, third-generation mushers with deep expertise and a strong commitment to ethical dog mushing practices. At Arctic Dog Adventure Co., we have a genuine interest in taking care of our guests, our community, and the distinctive landscapes of northern Alaska.
2-6 Hours | November - March
We offer small-group, hands-on, immersive mushing schools in which participants learn to drive their own dog team on 2 or 6 hour day trips. Dates are limited.
SUMMER KENNEL TOURS & HUSKY HIKES
2-3 Hours | July - October
Welcome to our off-grid Alaskan homestead & kennel! Meet the dogs and choose your own Siberian Husky hiking buddy . They are all so sweet -- it's a tough decision! You will learn to harness your husky, and then together we will embark on a nature walk through the old-growth boreal forest that surrounds the homestead.
I can't describe the feeling of moving along the trail with the dogs pulling together in front of me, and in such a gorgeous expansive land - it's one of those "I can't believe I'm so lucky as to be here" moments. And I had many of them.
