We start this tour by introducing you to Alaskan Huskies and the sport of long distance racing – including our own experiences racing in the Iditarod! We invite you to walk around our dog yard and meet all the different sled dog personalities. They’re super friendly!
After you’re done meeting the dogs in the yard, it’s time to get them ready to run! We’ll explain how we assemble our dog teams, based in individual personalities. Then we’ll show you how to harness the dogs and start hooking them up to our 5-passenger wheeled vehicle. This vehicle is comfortable and safe for the whole family.
The trail ride is 0.5 to 4 miles in length, depending on the weather conditions. (Colder weather = longer run.) We’ll stop multiple times so you can take pictures with the dogs and change positions in the vehicle. When your ride is over, we’ll show you all of our most important winter gear, including the dog sled.
In summer, we finish up this tour by showing off our new puppies!
Duration between 2 – 3 hours, depending your level of interest and participation. If you ask lots of questions, take lots of pictures and want to pet all of the dogs, you’ll probably be here for closer to three hours. If you have scheduling restraints, just let us know.
Five (5) people is usually the maximum group size for this tour from June – mid September due to temperature restrictions for our dogs. Exceptions can be made for children who are small enough to fit on an adult’s lap. Contact us at [email protected] if your group size exceeds 5 people and includes lap children. We may also be able to accommodate groups larger than five people during cooler times of year like mid-September, October and November. Call us if your group exceeds five people and you are visiting during this time period.
Two people: $200 / Three people: $275 / Four people: $350 / Five people: $425. Additional persons beyond five (if space allows): $50 each. Solo travelers: $100; contact us to book over the phone.
People of all ages pay the same price. There are no discounts for children or military.
Transportation is not provided, nor coordinated by us. Most visitors rent their own vehicle for getting here, or arrange transportation with a company in Fairbanks. See Getting Here for drive time and directions.
