BY DOG TEAM
Drive a dog team to a remote aurora viewing camp north of Fairbanks.
Alaska is famed for its wildly romantic landscapes. Picture giant mountains, endless valleys, powerful frozen rivers, sparkling meadows of snow, enchanting forests of birch and spruce – and you and your dog team traveling through it all.
Our two day trip starts and ends at Arctic Dog Adventure Co. Routes range northeast into the White Mountains or northwest into the Minto Flats, depending on weather conditions. Explore twisty forest trails, tundra covered ridge lines and expanses of frosty black spruce swamp.
Our destination is our remote northern lights viewing camp, where a three course wilderness dinner will be prepared for you while you watch for swirls of aurora in the inky night sky. Our evening accommodations is a cozy Arctic Oven Igloo. The Arctic Oven is heated by a small wood stove, lit with twinkle lights, and has ample room for gear and leg stretching. You can even stand up inside! This is Alaskan "glamping" -- a truly comfortable winter camping experience.
Pricing is all-inclusive. This means it includes travel to and from your hotel to Arctic Dog Adventure Co., meals, snacks, sleeping bags, pads, expedition gear + accommodations.
These trips run according to demand. We have limited availability from December into March.

is this trip right for me?
Are you an adventurous soul? A dog lover? Do you love winter? Do you want to view the northern lights in a remote private location? Answer yes to any one of these? Then yes! This trip might be perfect for you!
No previous mushing experience is required. We will teach you everything you need to know to feel comfortable and equipped for your days on the trail.
That being said, dog mushing is a physical activity...from harnessing dogs to standing on the sled all day, you will need to be reasonably able-bodied in order to fully enjoy this experience. If you are hesitant about your ability to manage a dog team, please contact Lisbet & she will guide you through a series of questions designed to evaluate your abilities. You are probably better suited for this than you think.
You do not need previous experience with cold weather climates, but you will need to equip yourself with a proper set of winter base layers in order to ensure your comfort and safety. Even though it is spring in Alaska, weather and temperatures can still be harsh and unpredictable. We will happily provide you with a list of suggested gear -- your comfort is our utmost concern !
