Hike with huskies through the boreal forest of Interior Alaska.
Welcome to our off-grid Alaskan homestead & kennel! After a brief tour of the kennel, we will introduce you to your canine hiking partner. Each visitor gets their own dog. We keep a roster of whose turn it is to go out each day. It's also ok to hike without a dog, or to share a 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, and off-grid living.
