Mushing fun!
, Apr 2022
Such a fun experience! The dogs were so excited and happy to be pulling! A nice run through meadows and woods, with hot cocoa/ tea, and cookies afterwards. Guides friendly and welcoming Worth it!!
Fishing with the stars

No fish but the cabin was nice and cozy. Tyson did a wonderful job feeding us. We did see lights although they weren’t spectacular
Item Off My Bucket List ✔️
, Feb 2022
Our dog sledding adventure was amazing. After a short ride to the location, we were able to meet the dogs in the yard. They were very happy to meet us since they knew this meant they were going for a run. Bob prepared the sleigh and then we were off. We took a ride out into the snowy woods. Bob explained about the dogs training and their daily routine. We was a great tour. Highly recommend!

Loved being in the dog yard! They were so excited and loved getting pets! Seeing how anxious they were to run changed my feelings about this sport
Amazing tour
, Dec 2021
This is the most excited part of the trip (except Aurora). Alaska huskies are so cute and the guide was very knowledgeable. He told us a lot about the huskies and local cultures. The view was amazing along the way of the sledding. Highly recommend and it’s the one if you must-see.
A “ must do” tour on your winter trip
, Mar 2020
This was by far the Best tour on our trip.... All the staff/ crew were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Geared us up and then the fun started to happen.. From meeting and playing with the dogs, to watching the dogs get ready and harnessed up to take a run. Sven was awesome and teaching us about the dogs working, their positions and so much more. We would do it again on another trip. This is a 10 Star experience!
Dog sledding
, Mar 2020
Driver to and from destination was friendly and informative, it was hard to hear him at times since his head set did not seem to be working, there was no volume when he spoke. The highlight was the dog sledding, Jeff our guide was amazing, he made our trip an amazing experience.
Great Time Dog Sledding
, Mar 2020
Great time dog sledding! Dogs are extremely friendly and ready to run. We would have liked the mushers to explain the basic commands and halfway through the ride have the passengers switch seats so everyone gets an equal chance to be in the front. Sleds hold 4 people so the 2 people in the back seat don't have a good view for photos/videos of the dogs, but switching halfway through the ride would give everyone the same opportunity. Paul, our tour driver was awesome...10 stars!!! He was very informative and friendly, and on the way back to the hotel we saw a moose and her calf on the side of the road. Paul turned around so we could all take pictures and view the mother moose and her calf!

This is an amazing experience. Communication before the tour went smoothly, got picked up on time and had a nice chat on the way. Everyone at the kennel was really nice, too. The kennel tour is great, you can pet the dogs and puppies and get to know them. The ride was awesome, learned lots of interesting facts about mushing and enjoyed the scenery. I definitely reccomend this tour.

A fantastic tiur. We weren’t expecting such a personal experience. The staff was warm, informative and helpful with our disabled guest. We loved the ride and our guide, Joseph.. loved meeting the dogs, beautiful surroundings. Wouldn’t change a thing. Special.

, Mar 2017
I've never enjoyed anything more in my whole life! My traveling companion woke up sick and could not accompany me, but the vendor let me do this anyway. I did pay for both people, because the cancellation was through no fault of the company. The musher / dog handler was delightful, and whizzing down the paths from my seat in the sled basket, all wrapped up, while he did all the work, was near paradise. This experience involves learning about the dogs, the process, and getting to do some 'hands-on' stuff. If I had wanted more 'hands-on,' I could've had more hands-on. For a first experience, I did all I wanted. Hearing those dogs all howl because they want to go and watching the team run ahead of you from the sled were just primo. If I have a chance, I'll do this again, learn to stand and mush myself, and go for much longer than an hour. The time went too quickly - as I said, this was a lifetime peak experience, and I highly recommend it. The hem of my coat has a tiny tear from a Husky puppy's exuberant hopping and nipping - I'll patch it with duct tape and wear it proudly.

My group of 4 did this dog mushing/sledding tour and had a blast. We were staying in North Pole and had to meet the driver at the Visitor Center in Fairbanks because they didn't come out as far as North Pole. No big deal. It gave us a chance to check out the Visitor Center. Everyone from the driver, Kyle, to the sled drivers, Sven and Riley, were great. Really friendly and knowledgeable. It was great getting to play with the dogs while they got the sleds all set up. The ride itself was so much fun. We especially liked that they lasted a good while and weren't short in time like some of the other tours we looked into. Hot chocolate, coffee, water and cookies were also provided. There was a warm place to hang out before and after the ride. This was a highlight of our trip and I would definitely recommend this tour.
