Dog Sledding

Iditarod Packages, Glacier Dogsledding, Summer Dogsledding Tours

If you’ve never gone dog sledding, you are missing out on one of the most exhilarating, fun and unique outdoor adventures to be had. In Alaska, you can go dog sledding practically year round as even during the summer months, you can be pulled on wheeled carts or ATVs versus by dog sled. Dog sledding demonstrations are also available where you’ll learn the ins and outs of this fascinating sport including kenneling, training and breeding of these friendly and faithful dog teams of Siberian huskies and Malamutes.

Whether you are watching the Iditarod dog sled race held every March in Anchorage or charging over a glacier by dogsled, you can have lots of fun while participating in a classic Alaskan outdoor experience.
