The sled dog tour was so much fun! We learned a lot, got to play with the puppies and pet all the dogs. I highly recommend checking this place out. We had the best time. If we come to Alaska again we will absolutely be back!

This was an amazing experience. We were greeted as soon as we arrived, and then divided into two groups. Our group listened to a presentation on the sport of dog mushing as we toured the property of six-time Iditarod champion, Dallas Seavy. The best part of this experience was getting to pet a ton of dogs and receiving a few kisses from the adorable puppies. Having a husky that passed away recently, the howling sound was music to my ears and brought me much comfort and joy deep down in my soul. Next, we did the dog sledding through a birch tree line trail that felt like a magical winter wonderland. The guides were very attuned to the needs and safety of each guest. I would have felt very comfortable with my 7 year-old grandson driving the sled. As an adrenaline junkie, it was almost too slow for me. However, I understand the need for keeping us safe. I highly recommend this tour. If we come back, we will definitely do this tour again.

What a great experience. So informative and fun. Learned a lot from the knowledgeable mushers and staff. Got to spend time with the Iditarod champion dogs and went for a real dog sled run. An Alaska experience ticket you have to punch. Thank you to everyone there for giving us all a day we have won't forget.
