Hike with huskies through the boreal forest of Interior Alaska.
Welcome to our off-grid Alaskan homestead! After a brief tour of the homestead, we will visit the dog yard and you will meet your hiking partner. Each client gets their own dog. 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. We will point out wildflowers, trees, and animals on our walk up to the top of the ridge, where vast panoramic views of the Chatanika River Valley and the White Mountains await. We will sit on top of the ridge and enjoy a snack and a hot drink before we descend back down through the cranberry bushes and ferns to the kennel. On this tour you will have the opportunity to learn about Siberian Huskies, the natural history of Alaska, sled dogs, the Iditarod Sled Dog Race (Lisbet is a 3-time finisher), and off-grid living.
This trip is suitable for all ages and is easily customized to suit your group's needs!
