HARNESS YOUR POWER 

women's mushing RETREAT

5 Days | 4 Night

Travel ancient waterways and spectacular Alaskan landscapes with your own dog team.

Alaska is famed for its wildly romantic landscapes. Picture giant mountains, endless valleys, powerful frozen rivers, sparkling meadows of snow, enchanting forests of birch and spruce – and you and your dog team traveling through it all.

This women's retreat is designed for adventurous spirits ready to experience an authentic Alaskan mushing experience-- driving your own dog team.

Experience the meditative nature of mushing. Equal parts adventure and introspection, travel by dog team is an ideal way to absorb the energy and wisdom of a landscape. 

 

The huskies in your team will become your new best friends. They are trusting, loving, vivacious, and hum with forward energy. Their enthusiasm is contagious and you will share in their excitement for new adventure. 

Always aware of their natural environment, the dogs will help key us into our surroundings. Follow their lead. Huskies live in the moment. They teach us grounding and awareness. 

 

Our route follows the Susitna River, an ancient passageway 

fed by glaciers, infused with powerful water and mountain energy. We will follow its winding course, stopping at hand-built wilderness lodges along the way. Solid and warm, the lodges are comfortable spots in which to rest and recharge for the next day’s adventures.

 

Our turnaround point is the beautiful Northwoods Lodge, renowned for its cozy and luxurious accommodations and amenities. Have you ever experienced the magic of a sauna in winter? Stepping outside, steam rising off your skin, feeling impervious to the cold air... It’s an amazingly powerful energizer. 

Our journey will be marked by a relaxed pace, serene river travel, open air lunches, charming husky antics, and coaching in a supportive and empowering environment.

 

We will equip and empower you with the knowledge to drive your own sled dog team and teach you the tools to to feel confident in both the outdoors and your personal life. 

Unplug from daily life, connect with nature, find inner peace.

Leave feeling empowered, revitalized, refreshed.

Come with us for a transformational experience that will light your life.

Harness your power.

This trip is limited to a maximum of 4 women.
