Overview

Gold Rush Dog Tours highlights summer cart-mushing in the picturesque Sheep Creek in Juneau, Alaska. Your approach to dog-camp will bring you by the relics of Juneau's famed mining history, transporting you through the rain forest from sea level to our mountain valley home. While in camp, you will meet the Handlers and Mushers of Sheep Creek, as well as their teammates, the famed dogs of Alaska's official state sport. Following proper introductions, dog sled history, and a little mushing 101, you will take to our specially designed trainer carts for a 20 minute ride. Be sure to watch for porcupine, eagles, and even the potential black bear along the way. And then, there's cookies. Upon returning, it's time to grab a cookie and hot cup of cocoa prior to departing ways for your next adventure. Gold Rush Sled Dogs is ideal for groups and mushers of all ages. We look forward to seeing you this summer, happy tails!

Lynley was our guide and musher. She was awesome and had cute stories of this and that and answered all our questions. She made our day.

Overall this tour was a little too pricey for what was given - I was pretty disappointed as I thought that the sled would have been on snow. There was no snow and it wasn't really a sled. Time with the dogs was pretty limited...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to see the dogs/puppies & the sample dog mushing. Our guides (Teale Wood & Layla) were extremely informative & interesting and this shore excursion ranked as one of my favourites.
