LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY & KIDS

Our kennel visit is considered easy, but the terrain around our property is uneven and not wheelchair accessible. 

 

Kids LOVE this experience (and we love kids!). This visit is suitable for families with children of all ages.

To have the best time, we ask families with children under 10 to book a private visit, at no additional cost. That way, we can tailor the experience to best suit the pace and mood of the kids and adults involved.

Children under 6 are not allowed in the dog yard (we will bring the dogs to them). Babies and toddlers must come with a backpack carrier. 

Non-ambulatory kids in backpacks are free, all other kids are full price. It takes a high level of awareness, risk management and experience to monitor kids AND high energy sled dogs.

KENNEL VISIT TESTIMONIALS

My wife and I did the Husky Hike with Lisbet. It was a lot of fun. She was a very friendly and knowledgable. We got to select the dog we wanted to hike with and then we went on our hike. About half way through we stopped and she gave us hot tea and a homemade muffin. The views were awesome too. The whole experience was incredible.

Lisbet is a wonderful guide that gave us great insider information to better experience Fairbanks. Her history of the area and love of the land is evident in the passionate way she speaks. She truly cares for the animals and takes great care to ensure they live incredibly happy/fulfilled lives. I highly recommend booking a tour, you will not be disappointed!

This was an AMAZING activity! I’m not in shape, so I was huffing and puffing, but it was beautiful! Definitely book this experience if you have even the slightest love for dogs. I got Yksi, and she was pretty mellow, which is good for my pace. Lisbet is a wealth of information about the area and the history of sled dogs, and she’s genuinely interested in her guests’ hometowns, so it was wonderful to have conversation with her. She gave us homemade rhubarb muffins at the top of the ridge and they were to die for! Overall a wonderful value.

Lisbet is amazing! She is so knowledgeable and passionate about the mushing lifestyle. She is personable and easy to talk to and feels like an old friend. Her dogs were lovely and full of enthusiasm and joy. They clearly love Lisbet and working with her. My family really enjoyed meeting the dogs and having the opportunity to select our own companion for our hike through the wilderness (for me, this was my favorite part of the experience, but also the most challenging…I didn’t want to leave anyone behind!). All of the dogs were ready and excited for their walk in the woods as they eagerly pranced about while we harnessed and readied them for the adventure to come. I definitely recommend booking this experience with Lisbet. She has a long, impressive family history working with Siberian huskies and it’s so much fun hearing about her experiences while traversing through the woods with a husky leading you through the lovely terrain. Oh! And the cookies Lisbet made were delicious.”

Lisbet is super knowledgeable and full of great information about the area and the dogs and just about anything else you'd like to know. She clearly cares about all the dogs, and the experience was really fun. The dog I picked was a sweetheart. The views on the hike were gorgeous. Definitely recommend!

If you ever visit Alaska you need to do this experience. It was such an amazing time. We got to interact with all of the dogs and gain a connection with the perfect husky for us and take them with us on a hike. Lisbet was an amazing host and super sweet, knowledgeable, and very well organized. You can truly see how much they care about their huskies. On a side note, there is alot of mosquitoes so just make sure to bring your bug spray, but don’t let this stray you away from doing this because you are missing out if you pass it up. I 100% recommend this to anyone traveling here. You won’t be sorry!”
