    We loved it all, especially the mushing ride, the puppies, and the gorgeous scenery. Our tour guide, Ben, was also a lot of fun. Would highly recommend this tour!

    So much fun!
    Donna_G, May 2023
    Haley was our driver- she was a lot of fun, very knowledgeable. The trip to and from the mushers camp was as much fun as the camp. The scenery was beautiful- so high up. We saw a brown bear and a fox-so close to the road. The camp was clean and well kept. The dogs were so excited to see us and “do their job”. We were in the cart where the dogs had to make a wide sharp turn to get back into their starting position. They knew right where to go. The actual time on the mushing cart was a little short but it was fun. The puppies were adorable.
    Great experience.

    Really fun experience. Learned a lot about sled dogs and enjoyed my snuggle time with the adorable puppies.

    Dog sledding adventure
    Rosalie_N, Sep 2022
    John, the dog musher, gave a very interesting presentation on being a musher, the dogs and dog sledding. The dog sledding itself was a once in a lifetime experience!
    Wonderful entrance
    Rhonda_G, Sep 2022
    We were surprised to see the monster trucks and the steep terrain to get to the dog camp. Riding the unique monster truck and the fast dog sled.

    Seeing how happy and he the dogs are. Loved to pull and we petted them all! Everyone was so nice. Thumbs up!
    Loved the excursion!
    Kimberly_B, Aug 2022
    The dogs were wonderful and were very healthy and happy. They looked like they live to pull those carts. Everyone was just great and our group had a fabulous time. This is a group that really takes care of the dogs. We learned a lot. We’ll go again next time. Loved it.
    Fun for All Ages

    This was a great excursion for all ages! Puppies, trained sled dogs, beautiful views it was great! My only complaint was how short the ride and time with the dogs was. Wish it was longer and more relaxed but it was a ton of fun and super informative

    If you have Ben as your tour guide, ask him why the summer is warm
    Paul_H, Jul 2022
    This was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. Our guide, Ben, was great, and half the fun was the tour of Skagway and picture opportunities away from the actual dog sled experience. The dogs were REALLY into it, and my 12-year-old especially loved it.
    Response from Host, Nov 2022
    Thank you so much for this great review! We're so glad you enjoyed the tour, as well as Ben's incredibly long summer joke! You're welcome back anytime.
    You've gotta do this!
    Zoe_M, Jul 2022
    I went with two of my friends and this made our day! The sledding was so fun and the dogs were so happy :). They taught us a little bit more about dog sledding and then we got to pet the puppies, teenage, and retired sled dogs. SO fun!

    Thank you for taking the time to review us! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the entirety of the tour, especially all the pups. You are welcome back anytime!
    Sled dog ride and more
    Bruce_L, Jul 2022
    It was quite a unique experience. Our tour guide Patrick was informative and funny and we really enjoy being with him. It was cool to ride up the mountain to get to the sled dogs, meet the dogs and go for a ride with the 16 dogs pulling the sled. Then we got to spend times with the puppies. We got to pet them and hold them which if you love animals made it quite special.
    Response from Host, Sep 2022
    Thank you for taking the time to review us! We will pass along the feedback to Patrick. We appreciate you making us a part of your Alaska vacation plans!
