Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

During this small-group tour, you'll enjoy a uniquely Alaskan experience and learn about the official state sport, dog mushing. Your adventure begins as you embark on a breathtaking motorcoach ride into the remote and scenic Sheep Creek Valley, and to the home of some OF the state's most famous athletes - the huskies that run in the Iditarod. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a real Iditarod musher and his dog team. You'll tour the camp, visit the replica of an Iditarod Race checkpoint, and go through the steps each musher performs, as if you're traveling the route with him. Then you'll climb aboard a comfortable wheeled sled and relax as your husky team whisks you along the 1.5-mile trail through the beautiful landscape. Returning to camp, you'll get to visit with the dogs, pet the puppies and learn what it's like to live amid 120 happy huskies.
