Great dog sledding tour in Willow, an hour and half outside of Anchorage. Robert the musher is so friendly and passionate about his work! Great authentic experience in one of the biggest mushing communities in Alaska. You got to see part of the Iditarod race trail as well. Definitely go to them for dog sledding and other outdoor activities they... More

Robert and Christina were a pleasure, and the dogsled trip was wonderful. The dogs were all healthy and happy, very clearly well taken care of. The terrain where they brought us on our hour-long (don't bother with the 30 minute trip, go the full hour) dogsled journey was beautiful and offered views of Denali. If you've never been on this...

My family of 5 adults loved this dog sled ride during December 2014! The ride goes through the prettiest forest area, along the Iditarod Trail, in Willow. Our guide/driver, Christina, was a wonderful young woman who answered all of our questions and was fun to be with. Since it is a small, family-owned company, the service was very personal and...

Awesome! This was a Christmas gift for some out of town guests and EVERYONE enjoyed the dog sled adventure. The price was very reasonable and we had a group that ranged in age from 9-68 and everyone had a great time. The mushers were very knowledgeable and friendly and the scenery was great and included a trip down the first... More

This was the first dog sled ride for our four boys and we could not have picked a better kennel. Christina and Tina were great with our boys. We started our adventure from the Eagle Quest Lodge, a great place to get a hot beverage or an awesome home cooked meal. You choose how long of a ride you want,... More
