Experience the Alaska State Sport! Each summer, mushers bring their sled dogs to our Musher’s Camp for summer training, and you can participate in one of their training runs when 16 Alaskan Huskies pull your custom-designed, wheeled summer sled down a mile-long forested trail. You’ll also ride an all-wheel drive Unimog up our mountain, cuddle up with our adorable husky puppies, learn about this adventurous sport in our interactive “Kennel Talk,” and so much more!

Matt was very informative and entertaining. We learned a lot about sled dogs. For my two daughters, getting to hold the 5-week old sled dog puppy was the highlight of our entire trip to Alaska. Definitely a worthwhile experience.

I can’t say enough great things about this excursion. The man in charge is an actual Iditarod rider with a magical and humorous personality. A very well run and caring place to visit.

You’d have to check the cost but to do snow you would either do a helicopter or plane tour that would take you where the snow is. Probably around $500 usd.

It’s $600 per person to take a helicopter to a glacier and do dog sledding. But beware, most of them get cancelled. I tried in two ports and both were cancelled for weather (this was in August).
