Add to Itinerary

Visiting a musher's camp is a uniquely Alaskan experience that will undoubtedly warm your heart. This perfect look inside Alaska's state sport will have you following next winter's races and begging the decision makers back home to track down a husky of your own. After a pickup at pier, you will take a scenic drive deep into the Tongass National Rainforest on Douglas Island. After arriving at the camp, you will be greeted by your seasoned musher and a team of Alaskan huskies who will be thrilled to make some new friends.

Once you are done handing out some scratches behind the ears, you will board a custom designed, wheeled summertime sled for a chance to see the dogs in action. Dogs like this were born to run and they will lead you on a thrill ride down a one mile trail surrounded by giant spruce and hemlock trees. After the ride, you will meet up with a knowledgeable dog handler and a retired sled dog. Ask any questions you may have about the life of a musher and the fine-tuned care provided to these famous dogs. A rundown on the most important races and various equipment involved in dog sledding will provide even greater insight about the sporting world of dog mushing.

Free time at the end will allow you to walk along beautiful Fish Creek and play with the adorable husky puppies. Socializing these dogs is an important part of their future success, so consider yourself part of the team!
