Short Dog Sledding and Kennel Tour
- Duration: 180 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Fairbanks, AK
- Product code: BDSST
Before Europeans arrived in Alaska, dogsledding was already a very
important part of Alaskan local life. Dog sleds were the most convenient way to
travel and to deliver important supplies between local villages in the dead of
winter. Even today, dogsleds continue to be used in remote portions of Alaska
for daily travel needs. On this tour, snuggle under a warm blanket with a
friend and enjoy the rush of a brisk 30-minute sled ride through the beautiful
forests of Alaska. Your musher will happily take photos for you and with you. You
will be won over by both these enthusiastic Alaskan Huskies and their mushers.
*Please note, the sleds on this tour variously accommodate 2-4 people and are assigned by weight and the musher’s knowledge of the dogs. You will need to share your sled with other people. Please follow the musher’s guidance when he assigns seating. If less than 2 people choose this tour, your tour may need to be rescheduled or cancelled.
1/2 hour sled ride, kennel tour, musher service, hot drinks, a blanket for your legs.
Warm clothes, meals, tips for driver and guide ($8 and above is the suggested tip per
guest per activity.)
After arrival, you will be able to take photos with the dogs, enjoy some hot drinks while being assigned to a sled.
Your ride will last 30 minutes. Depending on the size of your group, there may
be more than 1 round of sleds that go out before your departure.
