It was great having you and your mom visit from the South Tina! There is not much that we can do to guarantee the view of the northern lights, but we can guarantee that our dogs are always happy to see visitors and to take them on sled dog rides!

Few business name brands reflect the business model, but this one said it all! Very memorable experience and you can spend as much time with the dogs as you want... Great for kids (I have a teenager who loves dogs).

Thank you Liem! We understand that having the opportunity to visit dogs makes the sled dog ride experience even more magical! We love our dogs and we know that our guests will too! They are very friendly and love to interact with our guests!

It was such an awesome experience. The entire staff was friendly and knowledgeable. First thing was making sure we were suited up correctly. If not they had plenty of gear for us there just in case at no charge. After we were dressed appropriately we went outside to meet the dogs and our musher. You can tell the dogs really love to run and they couldn’t wait to get started. Our guide was Jameson who has been doing this for a while and bred all the dogs we ran with. Just an awesome experience would reccomend to everyone
