Must do for nature & dog lovers

A really great experience. My wife and I did the half-day trek and got to man our own sled of dogs. It was a really great experience and worth every penny.

This is a must! We did the Yukon Trek. Owners are wonderful people. They have most, if not all, of the gear you need. Just check when booking. The dogs are something special! You will be right there with them as they are each harnessed and hooked up to the sled. You can "drive" the sled or ride. Scenery is... More

This was my first visit to Montana, and the dog sledding was a highlight of my visit. They take very good care of the dogs, who are all so excited to go out for a run in the snow! You get to drive your own team, which is easier than it looks, since the dogs know the route pretty well.... More

We visited Chico Hot Springs as part of our Tauck tour in January, so we came in a day early to take a dogsled trek. Wow, what a blast! There were 5 guests and 4 mushers on our trek. We chose the Yukon which is a 10 mile round trip with a stop for a picnic lunch at the halfway... More

I did the full day Denali trek with Mat and his dogs and it was absolutely amazing. To have your own team is a thrilling experience. Mat takes you clearly and effectively through the steps of beginners mushing. To feel in sync with the dogs and experience nature from a dogsled is truly magical. Mat and Hannah love their dogs,...

I had a wonderful time mushing on the Denali trail! The dogs were great, the scenery was breathtaking, and Mat and Hannah were wonderful. It was the best mushing trip of the 8 mushing trips I have taken in the U.S. and Canada. Stacey Evans

Going on a dogsled trek was something I had wanted to do for several years, and it was worth the wait. It was a gorgeous day on the trail, and was incredibly peaceful... just the sounds of the dogs, the sled and sometimes a breeze. The dogs are so excited to go... they're just fun to be around, and Mat... More

Went on 12/17/14.... From start to finish a truly amazing experience. First you meet Matt, a man who is truly following his bliss is a beautiful thing to behold. Then to watch the dogs so excited to run and be out on the trail in pristine wilderness with captivating silence; there simply is no other experience on earth like it!

What fun my friend, her friends, and I had on a winter day dog sledding. We were all in our early 70's except for one 60-something and had so much fun. The crew was great and had lots of work to do before we could get going. The dogs were so excited one could probably hear them yipping and yelping... More
