This is a tour full of Alaska adventure, history and awe-inspiring wilderness. For years to come, you will love talking about your thrilling sled ride in Alaska, your newfound mushing experience, and the adorable puppies! Your easy half-day adventure includes the scenic roundtrip drive from your ship in Skagway to Dyea for intriguing insight into Alaska's Klondike National Historical Park. At the Musher's Camp ™ take an exhilarating sled ride pulled by a team of powerful Alaska Huskies, some of whom have competed in world-renowned races like the Iditarod and Yukon Quest, learn about this adventurous sport from experienced mushers at an informative "Kennel Talk", and enjoy play and photo time with a passel of tail-wagging puppies. Your tour also includes a 4x4 Unimog drive to a dramatic look-out point over the Dyea tidal flats, a crackling fire, and the unique gift shop laden with enticing souvenirs.
