Experience a true Alaskan adventure while supporting the official state sport! Take an exhilarating sled ride and play with our husky puppies, all in the heart of the lush Alaskan rainforest.When you arrive at our authentic summer training camp for mushers and their sled dogs, you will participate in a sled dog summer training run on our custom-designed, wheeled summertime sled. Discover the power in a team of Alaskan huskies as they whisk your sled down a mile long trail through the depths of the Tongass National Rainforest! Then join one of our dog handlers and sled dogs for interactive demonstrations on mushing equipment and the impeccable care the dogs receive. Your dog handler will also entertain you with knowledge about the training, history, races, and inspiring efforts required by this sport.Marvel at the untamed beauty that has lured you to Alaska when you walk across our suspension bridge overlooking Fish Creek. Our Musher’s Camp is surrounded by moss-covered forest with huge spruce and hemlock trees. The views are simply awe-inspiring.Finally, cuddle up with our husky puppies, and take your picture with these adorable future athletes!This excursion is the perfect mix of Alaska’s culture, history, adventure, ruggedly gorgeous wilderness, and of course sled dogs and puppies! Notes: All ages welcome, and most special needs may be accommodated. Round trip transportation and complimentary refreshments are provided.

We took helicopter to top of Mendalhal glacier - expensive but worth it. No other way to see this part of Alaska. Did a little dog sledding - even played with the puppies. Really a special, one in a lifetime experience

Thanks for reaching out! The suspension bridge for our Musher's Camp is optional so we don't force anyone to cross over it!
