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!

In July 2016 we were fortunate to hear Matt Hyashida, Iditarod Champion, demonstrate how sled dogs are selected and raised, and what it takes as a Musher with a team to win the grueling endurance race. A memorable experience, not to be missed.

Our family of 18 adults/teens/kids took this excursion. The kids loved playing with the puppies after the sled ride. Everyone was very informative, even the bus driver. He even stopped so we could take pictures of the Alaskan outdoors.

Brilliant excursion, the mushers camp was amazing and the sounds incredible. The dogs just knew what to do and fantastic scenery on our sleigh ride! Originally booked to go up to glacier but bad weather forced cancellation of the dog sledding up there! Ended up at musher camp booked at the last minute and was not disappointed :)

Our group enjoyed this activity very much. We learned more about the amazing sled dogs, about their races and mushers. We got to ride in their summer sled and we saw how driven this dogs are. After the ride we had the opportunity to play with some beautiful puppies and to learn about the mushers. The dogs looked well taken... More

Our family of 4, including a 7 and 9 year old, loved this excursion. We had to book this in place of the glacier dog sled tour we were planning on because they closed down three days before we arrived on our cruise ship. But this is the next best thing. We met the working dogs who were training on... More

Not only is this a great and extremely informational place to learn about sled dog racing, there are real sled dog puppies that you get to hold and pat! A must if you love dogs or have small children!

We did this stop as part of a larger tour with Skagway Shore tours. We all loved it. It was so informative, our kids really enjoyed the sled ride and hearing about the life of a musher.

We went on the sled dog and musher camp excursion and the people that work there are amazing. Not only did they show us a fantastic time, awesome ride with the dogs and a chance to see how they train these dogs but the people were great too. I would highly recommend this trip.

We did this tour with our two granddaughters, ages 6 and 8, figuring they would enjoy the chance to get up close with the sled dogs and of course the puppies. Well guess what? This tour is definitely one for all ages. My wife and I enjoyed the experience from beginning to end. The folks conducting the tour and those... More

This was not my first pick when choosing excursions however... it was not a disappointment! Our guide was funny and made our outing memorable. Once you get there and see all the dogs and the barking it's something you'll never forget. Worth the money!
