  Sled Dog Extravaganza  
These fully guided 6 day trips provide you with the opportunity to learn how to run "mush" dogs. This is the most personalized tour with only 2 clients per departure. With 25 friendly Alaskan huskies to choose from, we make up teams of four to six dogs and set off for the adventure of a lifetime. You'll run your own team for the entire trip. The dogs know exactly what they're doing and once you have a few miles under your belt you will, too.
 
   
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Huskies have been around for ages but sled dogs are still as amazing as they were during the days of the great Klondike Gold Rush: Coming through when you need them the most. Giving their all to get that load up over the top of the hill. Lapping up any attention that comes their way.

Our 25 Alaskan huskies all born and raised here. Ranging in age from six months to 13 years, they're well-trained and extremely social. There's only one thing they love more than being patted - and that's running.

Alaskans aren't particularly big dogs. Ours weigh between 40 and 60 pounds. With special attention paid to their diet and exercise program, they're capable of hauling great loads for long distances. When it comes to speed, they can pour it on if required but generally they do best at a steady pace of 10 to 12 miles per hour. Given plenty of love and respect, you'll find that sled dogs are the best working companions you'll ever come across. Dogsledding is teamwork at its finest!
