Tour Details

In the morning you’ll experience our signature dog sled tour where you’ll enjoy the thrill of running with a team of Iditarod sled dogs over winter trails. Our expert guides who have raised and raced with these dogs will share a life lived with dogs and show you the beauty of Alaska by dog sled.

After dog sledding, we’ll transition to the snowmobiles for a little thumb-on-the-throttle fun! Whether you’re new to snowmobiling or are an experienced rider, tailor the tour to your needs and ability level.

While we are out on the trail, we will ride to a lodge for an amazing Alaskan lunch. The hospitality here is unparalleled and is a great place to warm up, too!
