Peter, or musher,shared so much interesting knowledgeo dogs, native beliefs, and life. I have a few acutely bulging discs so I was afraid of a bumpy ride but went for the bucket list check anyway. The sled ride was surprisingly smooth. They have boots, parkas,...More

Crystal, I love that this experience touched your soul and inspired you in this way...it reminds me of my first experiences in Alaska and with its people nearly 30 years ago. We are always very excited to share our love and passion for these animals...More

I was in Fairbanks two weeks ago and we began all of our daily adventures well before the "official" sunrise at 11:00am ish, including doing a 10:00am tour. . . At 9:15am it was still quite dark out, but by 10:00am, it was getting light enough to readily see. Depending upon your activity, the sun rising over the horizon may be obscured by trees, but you'll be treated to a colorful sky if clouds permit. Have a wonderful trip!

Possibly... Is he is able to sit upright in the sled with his legs in front of him? How old is your son? Can he sit in front of you using you for support from behind? Please give a call to discuss his situation and I will gladly answer questions and work thru details with you. I feel sure we could come up with a solution. Thank you for contacting me. - Leslie

Our Summer Tukaway Kennel Tour and cart ride is offered every evening (when it’s cooler for dogs) at 7:00 pm. It lasts about 1.5 hours and provides a wealth of information and fun facts about a life with sled dogs; you get to pet and interact with the sled dogs (AND Puppies- in summer we usually have a litter to cuddle). The tour culminates with a short ride on a 6-place ATV pulled by the sled dog team. You can even help our guide harness and hitch the team to the sled if you want, or just take great photos of the process. See more pics and info in our website and Facebook.
