Short & sweet dog sled tour through the boreal forest of Interior Alaska.
This trip is designed for those eager to experience an authentic Alaskan mushing experience -- driving your own dog team!
This is the real deal, which means you are not just along for a ride -- you are an active participant in this adventure. Your guide will give you a lesson on how to drive the sled and then you will assist in harnessing your team for a guide-led trip that will take you several miles through beautiful old growth boreal forest to the top of a ridge, where vast panoramic views of the White Mountains and the Chatanika River Valley await.
After your tour, you are welcomed back to the kennel with a warming fire, hot drinks, and home-baked treats. This is a 2 tour hour from arrival to departure, with a minimum of 1 hour on the dog sled. Sometimes we spend extra time teaching, talking, or taking pictures on the trail, which is why we have a flexible time range.
No previous mushing experience is required. We will teach you everything you need to know to feel comfortable and well equipped for your time on the trail. 99% of our clients have never stepped foot on a dog sled before! You are accompanied at all times by a professional dog sledding guide who oversees the whole experience, allowing you to relax and enjoy the thrill of driving your own dog team. An adventure of a lifetime awaits!
