Excursion Overview

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 the 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 pulls 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.

Interesting to see how sled dogs are managed. Ride on sled was pretty short. People were friendly and really love their dogs.

What a great experience! We got so much info on the dogs, their origins, why they are placed in each position on the harness, and why they have so much power and excitement! We also learned about some of the MANY races the dogs do. This was a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend it! The staff were so informative and fun!

It was a warm day for the dogs, so maybe the experience wasn't how it normally is. It was VERY expensive for what you get. We were picked up in a van, sat in a tent while a guy talked about the dogs, rode on the cart for maybe 3/4 mile with a few dog breaks, and sat in another tent while he talked about races, my kids held one puppy for a few minutes, and then we left. I guess I didn't know what to expect, but that was not. There had to have been more than 100 dogs there. To sum it up, I felt bad for the dogs, it wasn't worth the money for my family, but the scenery was amazing.
