This was a tour destination on our Alaska trip. You get to hold one of the puppies which was great. It was interesting and informative about the Dog sled teams, etc.

Don't miss it. You can walk around before the show and pet the docile dogs but when it's time for them to pull the sled they are all in. Can't believe how fast they are. Don't miss the show!

I took my family and friends here. The Park Ranger started the demo by talking about the dog's care, how they are trained and how the dogs were used in the past and are still being used for! The dogs were incredible! Each one had...More

You have the option to take a bus from the visitor center or you can hike there. The bus ride is a short ride and offered round trip. Dress casually, the same as you would for the national park!
