Trip reports & news from the North

Tours are open for booking!

Updated: Oct 2


Arctic Dog Adventure Co.'s 2020-2021 tour dates have been released and are available to book online! Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we have adapted our policies and schedule in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


We look forward to guiding our clients through Alaska's wilderness with a renewed commitment to heath and safety.


From our classic dog sled driving experience, the "2 Hour Drive Your Own Dog Team Tour" to a new and exciting multi day adventure in the Brooks Range of Arctic Alaska, we have an incredible selection of hands-on, unique, and inspiring Alaskan adventures to offer this season.


New for 2020: We will be requiring masks for day tours and negative PCR COVID-19 tests for all multi day tours (including Aurora and Cabin Overnights). We are also dropping our 4 person minimum for multi day trips to 2. There is enough uncertainty in life right now! For more information on our COVID-19 response plan, please visit the COVID-19 page on our website.


In addition to our day tours and overnights, we are offering four week-long multi day tours this year:

Tolovana Hot Springs Aurora Tour: February 8-12, 2021

Spring Equinox Aurora Safari: March 14-19, 2021

Denali Dream Expedition: March 29-April 2, 2021

Brooks Range Basecamp: April 19-23, 2021

The aurora tours are scheduled during New Moons and the Spring Equinox to optimize aurora viewing. The Denali and Arctic trips are scheduled for (hopefully) mild weather and loads of sunshine, opening up the surrounding regions for sightseeing & exploring. Please contact us if you'd like a detailed itinerary for one of these trips.


We are still formulating the itinerary for the Brooks Range Basecamp, but I am so excited to share it with you soon! This trip is the culmination of a lot of planning and permitting, and we feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to share this incredible region of Alaska with our guests!


In addition, this year we have added more White Mountains Cabin Aurora Overnight dates. The combination of comfort, scenery, wilderness, and landscapes ideal for aurora viewing that these trips offer is unparalleled.


This week we have been enjoying several nights of amazing aurora viewing thanks to the Fall Equinox and a solar storm. We hope our Spring Equinox Aurora trip is as fortuitous! Fall training has started up again for the sled dogs, and we had our first real frost last night. I am readying our lines for the winter season, picking the last of this season's blueberries, and hoping I can fill up a couple of buckets of lingonberries before either the snow falls or the grouse get them all. Either way, I promise you a berry cake of some sort if you come visit! I hope you are enjoying your autumn, wherever you are, that your and your family is staying safe and healthy, and that you may be feeling encouraged to begin traveling and exploring again this winter. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns about our trips -- I'm happy to connect!


Happy autumn!
