Our dogs are like family to us and we work very hard to take great care of them. One of the highlights for nearly every guest is to meet and interact with our team. Our dog’s are happy, full of energy, and they love all the attention you can give them. We often have pups on scene that steal the show and they always love to be cuddled and held close by our guests. Our dogs are definitely the star attraction and once you meet them you’ll never forget them.
Dustin and Justin really made this experience incredible. We did the dog sledding and snow mobile tour which was... absolutely incredible. Everyone was so friendly and they really went out of their way to make sure everyone had a good time. The only thing that could have possibly made it a better experience was if we saw a moose! We will definitely be back in the summer for another one of their tours!read more
Came to Alaska for the first time and wanted to do everything away from the major city. The snow machines were awesome... and prior to this, I had never driven a show machine or jet ski. Justin and Dustin were extremely patient with our group and had fun times in the powder snow. Be careful, stepping of your snow machine may get you into 6" deep of powdery snow. I highly recommend booking a snow machine tour with the team at Snowhook if you're in the Wasilla/ Willow area. Thanks again guys!!!read more
We had such a blast. Never have we ever done this before. The dogs are so sweet. The sledding was a hoot. Matt was our... expert who taught us so much about dog sledding. He's extremely knowledgeable and a genuinely nice guy. They all are. If you're ever wondering whether or not to try this, it's a yes! You'll love the experience.read more
Just awesome! This perfectly describes this event. Our Alaska vacation is a once in a lifetime type of event for us so... we wanted it to be memorable in every way. Our dog sledding experience with Snowhook Adventures will be a highlight long remembered. Justin and Rebekah took time to explain all that goes into developing their dog teams and it is evident how much they truly care for their dogs. And the ride was truly exhilarating! We enjoyed it immensely and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Alaska!read more
Dog sledding has always been on my bucket list, and Snowhook did not disappoint! The owners are incredibly friendly and... nice. They were also very thoughtful. They gave us extra gear to ensure we were comfortable. We also had a 3 month old baby in the group, and they were very careful during the ride to make sure the baby was safe and comfy.They love their dogs and it is evident in how they care for them and talk about them with you. I loved that the experience was more than a ride. It also included meeting the dogs, playing with week old puppies, and learning about dog sledding. This was an unforgettable experience, and I definitely plan on returning.read more
I booked a dog sled and a snow machine tour through these guys and gals. The owners are AMAZINGLY nice! Everyone that... works there is so personable! It really was one of the most amazing experiences of my life to date. I will be coming back and I would recommend it to any and everyone! Thank you Snowhook!read more
I was born and raised in Alaska and until yesterday, I had never once went dog sledding. It was an amazing experience. ... The guide Justin was knowledgeable and made sure that I was always having a good time. It truly was amazing and an experience I will never forget! I hope to be able to do it again and bring my kids when they are a little older! I would recommend them to anyone wanting a truly amazing dog sled experience!read more
First off let me say this was an AMAZING experience. Me and my wife have traveled all over the world and this may be... one of my top 5 experiences of all time. We did the all day adventure and it was worth every penny.The owner Justin was our primary guide for the day and he was just absolutely incredible. He took the time to get to know each guest, our stories, and about us. He also told us his story and made it a very personable experience. By the end of the day he truly felt like a friend. The amount of love and care he shows for the dogs truly shines and being able to bond with the pups and see them in their natural environment was incredible.Justin also took us and others on a snowmobile tour and it was just incredible. Myself and several others got stuck several times in almost 4 feet of snow! Justin was incredibly patient and helped dig us out several times. Digging out a snow machine is incredibly taxing on the human body but Justin was kind throughout it all. At one point a local (not involved on our tour) got stuck on the trail and Justin stopped what he was doing and helped get them unstuck.All in all this was a perfect day and one I would highly recommend to anyone. I also read the one negative review about COVID protocols. For one, this entire tour is OUTSIDE. And I mean completely and totally outside. For a few brief moments you are in a cabin getting gear. That is it. If you are that uncomfortable, perhaps you should not have traveled to Alaska in the first place. I felt very safe and enjoyed my experience greatly! Thank you Justin for an amazing day and I look forward to returning in the summer!read more
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Justin and our guides . Sierra was a wonderful musher(so?) and Peter gave us... a great tour by snow machine of the area in Willow. We had a blast! Thanks for a great day!!!read more
Best experience of our lives! We went on the dogsled and snowmachine tour. Such genuine people who give great care to... their dogs. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Thank you Justin! It was so much funread more
Justin and Sierra did a fantastic job making us feel safe and enjoying both dog sledding and snow machining... experiences. Provided extra gear to ensure everyone stayed warm even with it being 15 below at the start. Couldn't ask for a better time! Highly recommendedread more
What an amazing day! We booked the Alaska Winter Experience Adventure Tour and boy did they deliver! This kind, family... run business was full of care for their team, their dogs, and their guests. We had an amazing and beautiful adventure we will never forget! Thank you so much!read more
Had a wonderful time with my wife! They don’t just throw you on a sled and take you around, they introduce you to the... dogs. Let you let them, know their names and their stories. They explain the process and how they pick dogs for certain duties as well as show their love and compassion for them. They provided us with the gear necessary as well as the knowledge on how to go about it safely. The people working there are so nice, and military friendly! I 10 out of 10 recommend, and I can not wait to go back. Thanks for the wonderful time!read more
My sister was visiting Alaska and wanted to do "Alaska things" so she booked a dog sledding experience with these guys.... My expectations weren't high and I wondered if it was going to be a bit of a tourist trap but my expectations were surpassed.Justin was a genuine guide and you could tell he was really passionate about his dogs and providing a worthwhile experience to all of his clients. After getting home I told my whole family they have to try it out next time they're in Alaska.read more
Don’t look any further! Went here with my dad and thoroughly enjoyed the snow mobile group tour! Rebecca and her... husband are incredibly sweet, gracious, and more than prepared! Overalls, gloves, ski goggles, helmet, boots, you name it! They have it all ready for you! Even in the cold temperatures, we never felt cold with all the gear they had provided to us, which was also within the cost of the excursion! Very well worth the price! I can’t wait to return!!read more
We just went on a dogsled tour through the most beautiful winter wonderland and it was the most amazing thing we may... have ever done! Our guide was so knowledgeable and kind, and the dogs were incredibly well-trained and intelligent. It was so fun holding the puppies and petting all the dogs. They have 50 sled dogs here, and you get to meet all of them! Don't miss this once in a lifetime place on your alaska trip!read more
I had an amazing day with Justin and his crew. We were treated like old friends, meeting his dogs and mushing near the... start of the famous Iditarod trail, then playing on snow machines. I can understand how people can get addicted to both! I really enjoyed the quiet of the sleds, and to see the dogs doing what they love and were made to do. It is a day well spent!read more
Our experience with Snow Hook Adventures was better than we could have hoped for! We did the Autumn Dog Sled tour and... my husband and I think anyone in the Anchorage area MUST visit Justin and Rebecca’s set up! Justin was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about all things dog sled related and the experience was well worth the cost! I mean, how can you go wrong with 57 gorgeous dogs and a 45-minute dog sled ride through the beautiful Alaskan scenery?! We plan on coming back for the winter tour and recommend this adventure for any animal or nature lover!read more
