Join our most involved and hands-on dog sledding tour, where you spend a full day like an Iditarod musher. Meet your own team of sled dogs and learn each of their personalities and position. Practice the essentials of maneuvering a dog sled, learn the commands, and outfit your dogs with their harnesses. Take off down the wilderness trail until you reach our winter training camp, and then park and snack your team just like at a race checkpoint. While the dogs rest, sit around a campfire and enjoy a hot lunch before heading back out on the trail for your return trip to the homestead. Moderate fitness level highly recommended.

Need extra warm gear? We’ve got you covered. Arctic-quality parkas, snow pants, boots, hat, neck warmer, and mittens are provided for your use, free of charge.

Was taught/guided by James (who finished the Iditarod in 2016!) -- He was a fantastic host - friendly, informative, and obviously tremendously experienced in dogsledding. It was an absolute treat from start to finish. Special thanks goes to my 4-dog team of Roll, Pinyon, Soko and Ukulele for flying me across the snowy landscape. I highly recommend!






Such an awesome experience! This desk jockey got to drive her own dog team! Sean was a friendly and patient instructor, and the dogs were great too. I couldn't be happier with my adventure. I would say it was a once in a lifetime experience but I plan to do it again the next time I'm in Alaska.





The dogs are happy and friendly and SO excited to go. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I would go again in a heart beat! Even falling while pushing the sled up a hill was fun!
