Pair dogsledding with a small-town aurora hunting experience, and you have a memorable overnight trip in Talkeetna from Anchorage. Our first stop is to visit Iditarod champion sled dogs and let them pull you through snow-covered meadows. In Talkeetna, one of the best locations to see the Aurora Borealis, snowshoe to a prime spot to glimpse the celestial phenomenon. Meals, overnight accommodation at the historic Talkeetna Roadhouse or similar, and round-trip transport from Anchorage hotels all are part of this great package.
Wonderful. Had a great time. Dog mushing started the adventure and it just kept going. The dogs seemed so happy to be able run they appeared to really want to accommodate the tourists by pulling them around. It was nice to see how well they did their part to ensure the visitors to their kennels enjoyed themselves. The folks at the kennel were eager to show us around and share their love of the dogs.
The overnight stay in Talkeetna enabled the guests to see and experience life in a small Alaska town. The star lady was quite a treat to listen to. She really had a passion for sharing her knowledge on the skies. After being educated on the science behind the northern lights we embarked on a walk into the darkness to seek out the northern lights. Northern lights aside, I enjoyed the walk itself.
Our guide was easy to speak to and very informative. She really took the time to make sure that everyone on the tour was getting their needs met.
I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience dog mushing in Alaska and wanting to experience a little small town life.
One thing I thought would make this trip even more of an experience is to make the overnight stay into a two night stay. This would give the participants a little more time to venture out into some of the activities Talkeetna has to offer.
Bottom line this was a great experience and I would recommend it and consider doing it again.
Fantastic tour! Kevin was our tour guide and his knowledge about all of the areas we traveled to was incredible! We really liked the tour a lot and had fun dogsledding. Definitely I highly recommend taking a tour with the local tour operator and will do it again when I'm in Alaska. Really top notch people!
