Book this tour!!
Iris_F, Nov 2022
Incredible experience! Our guide was very informative but most of all he loves his dogs. The views were spectacular and my oldest son enjoyed guiding also the dogs. For animal lovers as me, the dogs were rotated between rides. After the sled we pet the dogs and the pictures they take are beautiful and professional. Hopefully I’ll come back to Alaska someday and for sure book this tour again!

Amy_D, Nov 2022
Very good experience and we were able to interact with the dogs. Our guide was informative and cared about his dogs. If they didn't want to go back out on a run then they weren't forced. They were rotated for rides. The pick up and drop off service was very good as well. Highly recommend.

Great Tour
Linda_W, Mar 2022
For the most part, this was a great tour, so much fun, and loved the dogs. Tony and his dogs were fantastic. He explained the dogs and their different positions in the line. He said the dogs were his children, and they were very well taken care of. In the end, he gave us treats to give the dogs. David was out photographer, and he took a pile of pictures. He sent us a couple via text almost immediately, and then we received a link the following day to all of the pictures that he took. Their communication from beginning to end was excellent. The only complaint we had is that the ride lasted only about 10 minutes, and was about 2 miles long. They explained to us that due to the moose being very aggressive at this time, we could not go off road. We understood, and had no problem with this. But somehow, the ride needed to be longer as advertised.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thank you for the GREAT Review. Due to safety issue we moved to another different trail as he explained. We are sorry that it happened. But our top priority was clients' safety and husky dogs' health. Have a blessed trip. Leah Alaska Journey Tours
Dog Sled Fun

Dissatisfaction
Patricia_G, Mar 2022
Though we loved the dogs and with the number of pictures taken, we were very disappointed with Viator. They met to pick us up at the wrong hotel so we had to rush to another meeting place. We paid a higher price for pickup service and ended up having to drive out to the sledding location. The dogmusher, was friendly and loved his dogs well. Unfortunately, because of the rough winter and stress on the moose, we couldn’t sled on the trails. They took us on roads in the park and it wasn’t near a thirty minute ride. We talked to other people who did get to go on trails and saw moose on their tours so it was just our tour who didn’t.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Yes, We provide a Pick up and Drop off service. If someone does not stay at a hotel in Fairbanks Downtown, we used to meet at Pike's Waterfront Lodge or Walmart Parking Lot. It was a miscommunication. We never had this kind of miscommunication before. When a guide (Driver) asked you to follow her SUV because you got a rental car, you said, "Yes." As we mentioned on TripAdvisor and Viator, it is about 20 min to 30 min for dog sledding. (It changes due to dogs, snow, wild animals, and trail conditions.) The Husky Dogs were so strong and energized. That is why it took little bit short because they were running fast even though the trail length is the same the another one. Most clients love the speed and running so fast. We moved to another trail due to safety issues. Moose is supposed to be aggressive to protect her calf. Even dogs are trying to protect their musher and a musher cannot control dogs as well when moose is on the trail or near the mushing team. Sorry again. Leah Alaska Journey Tours
Love Alaska
Drew_H, Feb 2022
I always dog sled when I come to Alaska!! Love driving the sleds and hanging out with all the doggies!!! This was so much fun!!
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Thank you for the GREAT review on Viator. We are glad that it was so much fun. We believe that it was a special experience to standing behind a mush during the riding, which is a mushing experience. We appreciate your review again. Have a blessed day. Leah Alaska Journey Tours
Awesome time dog sledding! Would definitely do it again!

Tip
Patty_C, Dec 2021
I totally appreciate the team giving us the opportunity to experience dog sledding, the musher himself said it was going to be approximately half of what we would get on a normal event. At the end I considered tipping the musher but then thought he just got paid 2 full fares for half the trip, I considered 150.00 to be a good tip. But we were reminded in no short terms by our car driver we owed the musher a tip. I did give 10 dollars but find demanding a tip quite rude!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Hi, We are truly sorry that it happened. Our Musher did the Husky dogs sledding 4 miles (we have 5 miles on a normal event. It takes 25 to 30 minutes. when we get it for 5 miles. When we looked at your photos we took, it took about 22 Min. - It started at 11:59 am and finished at 12:21 pm, which meant it was about 4 miles.) even though we had additional snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches, with localized amounts up to 15 inches. Linked are photos we took at the event: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhQBGswdDX5dhotGAaYe8XzSRYDzvA?e=f2dZSY (Photos linked to OneDrive) Linked are the following teams' photos: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhQBGswdDX5dhotFblrBFWw6bgmYcQ?e=PA8Zgj It was not half of what we would get on a normal event. The next clients said that it was 4 miles as the musher told them. As you know, we noticed around 11:00am in the morning if we would cancel the tour or not due to the WINTER STORM WARNING. Most tour companies canceled. It was the worst condition to get the tour. That's why our driver reminded you of how the musher was doing. IT WAS INCREDIBLE and THE GREAT JOB. He considered how clients would be disappointed if we would cancel it. He came out early to prepare the trail and inspected how it went as well. In addition, she did not force them to give tips. She did not say. "You need to give him tips," but "Please, can you give." Sorry again that it happened. Leah Alaska Journey Tours
Great ride! Beautiful views!

Memorable Tour- DO IT!
Angie_M, Dec 2021
DO THIS TOUR!! We would recommend this tour! David picked us up promptly in a nice and warm SUV and took us to the sledding area. Total of 4 people on the tour. David was very kind and attentive. During the tour he took photographs on a professional camera and shared with us the same day. So Instagram worthy! Then received all 100 total photos later that night. Tony (sled leader) and the dogs really stole the show. Sledding was such a great time and Tony was extremely knowledgeable. The dogs were well taken care of and very loved. 100% Siberian Huskies and 1 Alaskan Husky. He explained the difference and how he got each dog. After they allowed us to meet the dogs and feed them some treats. Loved this tour!
