Experience the Alaska State Sport! Each summer, mushers bring their sled dogs to our Musher’s Camp for summer training, and you can participate in one of their training runs when 16 Alaskan Huskies pull your custom-designed, wheeled summer sled down a mile-long forested trail. You’ll also ride an all-wheel drive Unimog up our mountain, cuddle up with our adorable husky puppies, learn about this adventurous sport in our interactive “Kennel Talk,” and so much more!

Right from the start when Kevin (Kasprick) picked us up, we knew it was going to be enjoyable. Very funny, very knowledgable, great sense of humor and respect for the sled dogs and their amazing Mushers. Highly recommend

My wife and 2 young kids (4 & 1) took the long ride up the mountain to the dog sled and musher camp experience. Beautiful country and vistas. Fun experience with the kids. Very friendless and knowledgeable staff.

This camp is located in the town of Deas, a beautiful historical valley 9k from Skagway. The dogs are awesome and exuberant! The puppies are adorable. Our driver (Jason?) was friendly, but unfortunately knew very little about dog-sledding as he had only arrived in April....More

No. You are still in Alaska for this excursion. It never leaves the USA.
