REVIEWS

Such an awesome experience! We participated in the 1/2 day mushing school and it was incredibly fun. It was one of the last tours of the season with the warm temperatures though they have plenty of warm things to borrow if you come during a colder time. We each got our own team of 4 dogs to sled with and it was fun learning how to gear them up for the outing. And these weren't just the old, retired dogs; we got to run a few who had been in the Iditarod that year! I highly recommend paying the extra for this fun experience.

One of the best days of my life. Been dreaming of doing something like this for years and traveled to AK specifically for this experience. Blew my expectations out of the park. What an honor for Martin and crew to let the public in and share this sport. Cant wait to return in the future. Happiest/healthiest dogs I've ever met.

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.
