Start your dog mushing tour in Fairbanks by learning how to dress for the cold weather! Bring the warmest outerwear you have and we’ll supply the rest. Read more about how to dress.

Next, head outside to meet our friendly Alaskan Huskies. Play with them and take photos while we explain why we use this kind of dog and where they came from.

After socializing with the pups, it’s time to prepare for the dog sledding portion of the tour. First learn how to harness and hook up sled dogs. Then grab your sled and hold on tight! Visitors will get a chance to drive a “tag sled” as well as sit as a passenger in the tour guide’s sled (see photos below). We’ll stop multiple times on the trail so you can take pictures of the beautiful Alaskan scenery and swap positions between sitting in the guide’s sled and driving the tag sled. When we get back, take some more photos and help us put the dogs back at their houses. It’s an epic day in Fairbanks!
