We went out for a two hour tour with Courtney and Jason and an amazing team of pups. The dogs were so excited to go run and I rode with Courtney. She was a great guide telling me about the dogs, their tours and the area. I got to drive twice and it was a blast. Most of all, I... More

My husband and I did the 4 day trip through Denali via EarthSong. We could not have asked for a better experience. Our guide was fantastic and incredibly knowledgeable. The dogs were great, and everything about the experience was wonderful.

Enveloping yourself in the vastness of the wilderness and pristine beauty of Alaska, must be done by dogsledding. I am a flight attendant and an adventure traveler, so my research attains obscure and accommodating adventures, inwhich EarthSong exceeded all expectations. In the beginning moments of the dogs howling and barking while being assigned to their sled, the adrenaline inside you... More

Mike our host was unbelievable, the patience of a zen Buddhist monk, knowledgable, friendly and caring. The dogs are amazing, the scenery spectacular, the cabins warm and rustic, food warm and filling after a hard day in the cold. You need to... More

Whether you go out for four hours or four days or more, this will be an experience that you will never forget. Our guide was Mike on a four day trip and he is excellent at what he does. Mike is patient, friendly and has a lifetime of sledding experience to draw from. There was not a moment that we... More

This belated review is due to revisiting photos from our 4 hour dogsled trip in January. We had 4 hours of daylight and the surroundings picturesque, the dogs were well loved and cared for and our guides truly love their life. If we can return we would do the overnight trip for sure. When they offer you the opportunity to... More

When people asked why we went to Alaska in the winter, well, it was for the dogs! What a beautiful time to breath the Alaska air and experience the frozen and amazing countryside! Mike took us out for 4 days that we will never forget. This is a highly recommended activity and certainly go with these folks, they have all... More

We took a 4 hour dog mushing tour. It went through the tundra and alpine forest at Denali National Park, and the views are absolutely spectacular. The guides are friendly and will help you through the more difficult sections, but otherwise you get to drive the sled most of the time. They will outfit you with jackets and boots if... More

Could not have asked for a better host and guide then Jon Nierenberg. With His 15 plus years of living in the bush homesteading along with a long career of guiding dog tours and a... More
