Juneau Dog Sled Summer Camp

Join our team of mushers on an adventure you won't soon forget! Learn about Alaska's official state sport and experience a thrilling ride through the forest. Your excursion begins with a scenic drive along Gastineau Channel, and into the Ship Creek Valley.

When you arrive at the summer dog camp, you will hear the excited yips and barks as the dogs greet you! Before you embark on your dogsled ride, tour the camp and learn about the history of dogsledding. You will also have the opportunity to visit a 19th-century replica of an Iditarod Outpost.

Next, climb aboard a wheeled training cart and relax as your team of Alaska Huskies pull you through the rainforest! Enjoy each and every moment of the 1.5-mile dog sled adventure before arriving back at the sled dog camp.

Once back at the camp, you will have a chance to snuggle with the puppies! Be sure to have your camera ready for some fantastic photo opportunities. After a quick meet and greet with the puppies, your guide will transport you back to downtown Juneau.

Sep 2022 - Shanna B.

I can not say enough good things about this tour. My 10 & 6-year-olds loved getting pulled by the dogs, getting to pet them, and to love on the puppies. We also learned so much about the Iditarod and dog sledding. Highly recommend this tour. We traveled with a group of 7 and we were all able to ride together. It was a little rainy but the dog camp was prepared with ponchos. Being picked up right in Juneau was also convenient for the rest of our plans.

This was such a fun tour! Our driver to the camp was great and informative. The musher we had was also fantastic! Such great memories made!

Sep 2022 - Erich R.

It was a rainy day but we really enjoyed the informative tour of the camp and the fun ride being pulled by a team of authentic Sled dogs from an authentic musher. The cuddling with Sled dog puppies was the best way to end the tour!

Aug 2022 - Daniel C.

Fun excursion! Travelers should be warned to wear clothes they don't care about as it is quite muddy and rainy. Also, the road to get there is quite bumpy. Our biggest suggestion is more time in the end for cuddling the dogs and puppies.
