Complete your Alaskan adventure by experiencing Alaska’s state sport! Take an exhilarating sled ride pulled by a team of powerful Alaskan Huskies, learn about this adventurous sport from mushers, and cuddle up with adorable husky puppies at an authentic dog sledding summer training camp.
Your journey will begin with a scenic drive deep into the Tongass National Rainforest on Douglas Island. At the camp, you will not only be greeted by a musher but also by a team of Alaskan huskies just bursting with excitement. They know that once you board the custom-designed wheeled summertime sled, they get to run! Feel the thrill of being pulled by these strong huskies, and soak in the inspiring beauty as you race down a one-mile trail surrounded by giant Spruce and Hemlock trees.
After the ride, meet up with a knowledgeable dog handler and a retired sled dog. Together they will demonstrate the immaculate care sled dogs receive from their mushers and veterinarians. Walk across a suspension bridge overlooking Fish Creek and be awed by Alaska’s wilderness. Enjoy an interactive presentation about the adventurous races and various equipment involved in dog sledding.
Last, but certainly not least, meet the adorable husky puppies! They love your attention! Believe it or not, your affection socializes them, and this is essential to their future athletic success.
