Overview

We are two mushers - Travis Beals & Sarah Stokey - who share a passion for dog sledding, the Iditarod sled dog race, & story telling. Come meet our dogs, play with our puppies, and learn a little bit about Alaska's state sport before going for a fun dog sled ride. Our tours are kept small, customized to your groups needs, and are very hands on. We look forward to meeting you!

We took the glacier dog sledding tour and it was really a once in a lifetime experience. I had made it all the way to Alaska and didn't want to settle for a dog sled on wheels! You get fitted with overboots at the office...More

Sorry about the slight delay but glad this didn't put too much of a damper on things. If you can, splurging for the glacier dog sledding tour is always fun -- I mean, glaciers, helicopters, and dogs! -- hard to beat. We are happy to...More

We visited Turning Heads Kennels and was given a tour of the facility by Noah and Travis. Travis guided the sled that was being led on the trail by the dogs. The dogs listened to Travis for their direction. They were amazing and very fast....More
