Our family went out for the afternoon to see what dog sledding was all about. We were not disappointed! Every single dog of the 113 dogs on site were super friendly. Our team that was out together were very entertaining to say the least. They wanted to visit us in the sled every time we stopped (I got peed on... More

Myself and a mate had 8 days living the dream with Manuela, Jeff and the hard working crew at Muktuk. I've been dog-sledding a number of times with each adventure stepping up a level in both length and difficulty. When planning our trip with Manuela she was great in assessing our skills and suggesting what we could do to maximise... More

We went on a half day dogsledding tour with Muktuk as a part of a multi-day package we booked with a tour company. The staff/guides were all very friendly and you could tell how much all of them loved the dogs. The dogs were happy and well taken care of, and their affection showed that they were raised with love.... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of being guests for a week long "Rookie Ranch" experience with Muktuk Adventures. We both were welcomed as part of the extended family at Muktuk by the owners Jeff & Manuela and the amazing hard working staff. Our accomodation was great, massive big room, most comfortable beds and plenty of room to stay... More

They'll lend you warm clothing and let you drive your own dogsled team! Not as tough as it sounds, and you're well-supervised. A singular experience. Highly recommended. Oh, and if you're looking for a great pet, they have retired dogs available for adoption.

Frank Turner and his crew offer the finest sled dog experience anywhere in Canada's north. His staff are among the most knowledgeable I have encountered and their love for the dogs shows in how they are cared for.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Whitehorse. The dogs are wounderful and the staff really love those animals. It`s very nice to see how they care and respect their dogs.I did the half-day dog sled and it was awesome!!

I loved my time at Muktuk adventures! I booked the 4-day package with dog sledding, ice fishing, and snowmobiling. All the activities were interesting but nothing compares to the thrill of being pulled by the dogs. Being from California I found Muktuk supplying all the arctic gear super helpful. And the guides were great, especially Manuela the co-owner. Only unfortunate... More

Had a day trip whilst in Whitehorse to try dog sledding with Muktuk. It was an amazing experience and the owners have so much love for their dogs, how on earth they remember all their names. We were lucky enough to see a puppy and spent a little time in the retirement area with all the dogs no longer working.... More

We booked a half day with Muktuk through Northern Tales. So pleased we did. It was really wonderful to spend time with the dogs doing what they love. Thank you especially to Klondike and Sprint who ensured we spent the afternoon entertained by their antics. We consider this experience a must do while in Whitehorse. Thanks to all and we... More
