We are two mushers - Travis Beals & Sarah Stokey - who share a passion for dog sledding, the Iditarod sled dog race, & story telling. Come meet our dogs, play with our puppies, and learn a little bit about Alaska's state sport before going for a fun dog sled ride. Our tours are kept small, customized to your groups needs, and are very hands on. We look forward to meeting you!

All the staff are amazing, and they each have their own personal connections with each of the dogs. The dog sledding on Godwin Glacier was incredible, and it was cool to walk around to each of the dogs and hear their stories from the guides....More

Travis and Noah were terrific hosts and answered all of our questions. Dogs were the best and we could have stayed and played all day! And the PUPPIES! Thanks to the two and four-legged team members at Turning Heads for a lifetime memory!
