Today’s adventure starts with a scenic drive north from Anchorage to dog mushing country! After arriving at the kennel in Talkeetna, you will get an introduction into mushing your own team and then help harness the dogs before setting out on a 6-mile self drive mini expedition! Two guests will share one wheeled dog chariot and a small dog team of 4-7 Alaskan huskies. After 3 miles, stop for a photo opportunity with your dog team and to alternate from standing to riding on the passenger bench. The next 3 miles of mushing will duplicate the Iditarod trail where you will visit replicas of official Iditarod checkpoints and other highlights of “The Last Great Race on Earth”. Upon return to the kennel, reward the dogs with some treats and make sure you take some pictures with them. A lunch is included before or after the dog cart ride.
