This fall 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 5-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.
Autumn is one of the most beautiful and quiet times of the year in Alaska. The leaves are changing, the weather is cooler and most importantly the mosquitoes from summer are almost all gone, too! It is also the time when mushers start to train their dogs for the winter to come and for races like the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, the thousand-mile dog sled race across Alaska.
This tour includes all the elements of our winter dog sled tour with plenty of time to play with the dogs, take photos, and a beautiful ride with the team.
This tour consists of a 2-hour dog sled adventure. We also include all gear and necessary equipment needed for the tour. We encourage you to bring a camera as this tour includes amazing opportunities for photos!
Departs Daily: 10am | 12pm (noon)
Available: September – October (dependent on seasonal weather)
