Dog Sled Adventure Tour – Summer

$75.00 per person

This summer, join us for a dog sled ride and experience the changing season. Instead of a sled and snow, your ride will be in our custom-built 8-passenger side-by-side vehicle with a team of dogs training for the race trail.

This pre-season preview gives you a behind-the-scenes look at how mushers and dogs prepare for the winter season.

Tour Details

When you come to Alaska, dog sledding is on everyone’s bucket list.  Just because the snow may be gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t experience dog sledding in the summer.  Join us May through October in the heart of dog mushing country on an interactive dog sled ride and experience.
Right from the moment when you arrive on this 2 hour tour, you will be greeted by our retired dogs who are happy to get a little scratch behind the ears before you check in,  Afterwards, we’ll give you a history of dog sledding and then head over to the kennel where you get to meet and play with our entire team.  While you’re doing that, we’ll be getting ready to head out on the trail.  If you would like to learn how to harness dogs, we’re happy to teach you.  From here, we’ll go for a run with the dogs through the woods and over the hills.  You’ll be amazed at how strong they are and how they work together.  There’s plenty of time for photos and the dogs always appreciate the attention when we get back for a job well done.

This tour is suitable for people of all ages.  Young children need to be accompanied by an adult at all times when they are around the dogs.   While the dogs are super friendly, they are essentially kids themselves.  Rain gear is provided for this tour.  Lunch is available for purchase at the end of this tour as well.  Please let us know if you are planning on joining us for lunch.
