Start your tour by greeting us in our cozy, Alaskan warming tent. Inside you will have plenty of time to get suited up for the cold. 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 dogs, it’s time to prepare for our 4 mile run! 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 guide’s sled (see photos below). We’ll stop multiple times on the 4 mile trail so you can take pictures 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.

The trail is 4 miles in length, but the entire tour experience includes everything from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. Most people spend between 1.5 and 2.5 hours here, depending on their level of interest and participation. For example, if you are someone who wants to ask lots of questions, pet all the dogs and take lots of pictures, that’s great! You’ll probably be here for two or more hours. If you are uncomfortable in the cold, don’t like dogs, or don’t have a lot of questions, your tour will wrap up sooner.
Maximum group size is 6 people on most days. All winter tours are private! We won’t ever combine you, your couple, your family, or your group of friends with another party unless you request it.
