A VISIT TO HUSKY HOMESTEAD

Add to Itinerary

This is a tour straight out of a Jack London novel. Enjoy a warm welcome and experience a true Alaskan lifestyle at Husky Homestead—home of Iditarod Champion, Jeff King. Husky Homestead is widely heralded as an authentic look into rural lifestyles based on 40 years of Alaskan adventures: from freight hauling on Denali to crossing the finish line in Nome, Alaska with a champion Iditarod team.

Cuddle puppies upon arrival and share an intimate view of the Alaskan Husky as the team explodes from the dog yard and runs on our treadmill before hitting the trail for a training run. Get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating a championship team and carving a life in Alaska's Interior. Hear compelling stories from the trail and see actual racing sleds, arctic survival gear and equipment used to traverse 1100 miles of Alaska's most rugged terrain. This trip will transport you to a simpler age, when Alaska’s rugged terrain could only be crossed by dog sled!

  • This Tour Includes:
  • Round trip transportation from most Denali area hotels
  • Meet champion sled dogs
