What Makes Us Unique?

All of our Scenic Day Mushing Tours utilize tag sleds. Tag sleds allow you to experience the thrill and joy of dog mushing, without the stress of actually controlling the dog team.

During the no-snow or low-snow times of year, we offer a Sled Dog Safari Tour! This is an authentic training method used for conditioning long distance racing dogs like ours!

A Visitor's Perspective...

Rated "Excellent" by 300+ Travelers!

“There were so many aspects about our visit that we loved. At the top of the list is getting to know Katie and Jeff and their wonderful dogs. They took the time to teach us about all aspects of racing and competing in the Iditarod, but let the conversation travel along the path the guests wanted, so you could learn as much or as little as you desire… We went in the middle of October and there wasn’t snow, so I wasn’t sure how the experience would be, but frankly it likely turned out better than when there is snow, because we got the experience of the dogs pulling us and didn’t have to endure the freezing weather. Although I have to say a return visit during the snowy months would be something we would do for sure.”

“This was the highlight of our trip to Alaska! KattiJo and Jeff were so amazingly kind and informative. The dogs were adorable & it’s clear how well-kept & happy they are. It was SO interesting to learn about their off-grid location as well as about the exciting tradition they keep. The experience was so immersive as they let us help harness up the dogs and were continually encouraging & helping with photos. The adventures they told us about were so vivid that they felt like our own and the ride was a dream come true. If you are around Fairbanks and you don’t visit Black Spruce Dog Sledding, you are totally missing out!”

“Jeff and Kattie were amazingly warm and so welcoming. I was not sure about doing this in the summer without the snow but was still looking forward to it but our experience surpassed all expectations. They are so friendly and with their incredibly friendly dogs made our whole experience so worth while. They explained every detail and made us feel part of the whole experience from meeting, prepping the dogs to understanding everything about what happens in the winter. This is not a run of the mill tour, Jeff and Kattie were really passionate about what they did and it showed. All 4 of us including my parents had a great time and was one of the highlights of our Fairbanks trip. The dogs were fab too!”

“Thank you Lindsey for the amazing experience! You really have to be a DOG LOVER in my view to fully enjoy and appreciate this interactive tour. These beautiful Alaskan Huskies are charismatic, funny (pick pocket gloves-ha ha!), friendly, loving and beautiful… Being able to harness, play with them and have them take you on a majestic ride was just breathtaking!! Our guide, Lindsey was very knowledgeable, fun and friendly. She encouraged my daughter (13 years old) to stand on the ride which she did so this will be a memory she will never forget. The views were priceless… I have fallen in love with Alaska!”:
