This was our favorite tour out of the 5 tours we booked! The staff are so friendly and hospitable. The dogs were great to interact with too. The 1-hour sled ride was scenic and beautiful!
Fabulous tour! The dogs were so friendly and lively - they love what they do and can hardly wait to get you out on the sled!
Dylan was awesome and split the driving with my daughter and I - highlight!!
Awesome Winter Fun!! We had a great time with the dogs and the mushers! Definitely recommended!
A fantastic tiur. We weren’t expecting such a personal experience. The staff was warm, informative and helpful with our disabled guest. We loved the ride and our guide, Joseph.. loved meeting the dogs, beautiful surroundings. Wouldn’t change a thing. Special.
Dogs are just too cute
I've never enjoyed anything more in my whole life! My traveling companion woke up sick and could not accompany me, but the vendor let me do this anyway. I did pay for both people, because the cancellation was through no fault of the company. The musher / dog handler was delightful, and whizzing down the paths from my seat in the sled basket, all wrapped up, while he did all the work, was near paradise. This experience involves learning about the dogs, the process, and getting to do some 'hands-on' stuff. If I had wanted more 'hands-on,' I could've had more hands-on. For a first experience, I did all I wanted. Hearing those dogs all howl because they want to go and watching the team run ahead of you from the sled were just primo. If I have a chance, I'll do this again, learn to stand and mush myself, and go for much longer than an hour. The time went too quickly - as I said, this was a lifetime peak experience, and I highly recommend it. The hem of my coat has a tiny tear from a Husky puppy's exuberant hopping and nipping - I'll patch it with duct tape and wear it proudly.
My group of 4 did this dog mushing/sledding tour and had a blast. We were staying in North Pole and had to meet the driver at the Visitor Center in Fairbanks because they didn't come out as far as North Pole. No big deal. It gave us a chance to check out the Visitor Center.
Everyone from the driver, Kyle, to the sled drivers, Sven and Riley, were great. Really friendly and knowledgeable. It was great getting to play with the dogs while they got the sleds all set up. The ride itself was so much fun. We especially liked that they lasted a good while and weren't short in time like some of the other tours we looked into.
Hot chocolate, coffee, water and cookies were also provided. There was a warm place to hang out before and after the ride.
This was a highlight of our trip and I would definitely recommend this tour.
