My family of three went there last week. Nita treated us well. The dog sledding was fun although it was cut short due to a lack of snow.

Anita and her crew were so incredibly nice and made sure we had a great time. Despite coming in November, it hadn't snowed at all before we got into Fairbanks and Anita was nice enough to email me to let me know and give me other options of things we could do at her place or even a full refund....

A few miles out of Fairbanks and away from light pollution you will find Sirius Sled Dogs. The location is fantastic for enjoying the Northern Lights, and in the small cabin offering warmth and cosiness and hot drinks, there are large windows through which to view the NL. A really lovely aspect of the location is the beautiful sled dogs... More

This was an experience we will never forget. It was a last minute thing, as the company we had originally scheduled cancelled on us. Anita was so nice to fit us in at the last minute, and what an fun time we had! We met the dogs that we're going to be pulling our "sled" (a modified 63 VW chassis).... More

I went there during summer, so was on a wheeled cart instead of snow sledding. But it was still fun to ride. Owner is very informative and caring. She prepared plastics to wear so I can stay clean from the mud splash. She also delivered A-Z fact about dog sledding which was very interesting. After sledding, you get to meet... More

By far one of the greatest experiences in Fairbanks! We were there mid-March and were originally scheduled to do an afternoon sled, but it was unfortunately way too hot for the dogs. We were so disappointed since we heard other travelers have their dog sledding tours canceled with other companies due to the unusually warm weather, but Anita was so... More

I was originally signed up for an Aurora tour and hanging out with a few of Nita's sled dogs. Weather wasn't cooperating, Nita gave me the option of a sled dog ride instead. I have a new favorite thing.

Anita, Jeff, Ben, and the the dogs were great! One of the highlights for my week long Alaska trip! Jeff picked us up from our hotel and once you're there, you will find some dogs just laying or roaming around. We got there, met Anita and the dogs and started getting ready for the run. The dogs were so excited... More

We loved every second of this trip! Anita, Jeff and the team looked after us SO well. It was an amazing day that we'll never forget. I would definitely recommend using this company. Anita loves her dogs and it shows. You feel happy there and there is a sense of the good life being out in the clean fresh air... More

We had a blast with Nita and the dogs. This is a true Alaskan experience and a must do. Nita was an excellent host as well as her dogs. Not only will you get to mush with the beautiful dogs and see the work and dedication that is necessary, but you get to play with the doggies!!!! Nita makes you... More
