It's great to experience a dog mushing in summer. I said hello to every Husky and most of them gave me a big hug! It’s amazing for a Husky lover. Also you could learn a lot about dog mushing. Expecting another visit in winter!

We joined the sled ride there during our last visit to Alaska. The sled dogs were well-trained and friendly to human. The sled ride was a wonderful experience. The staff was nice and would explain to guests everything about the sled dogs.
