Experience Real Alaskan Dog Mushing!

Discover the Joy of Mushing an Alaskan Dog Sled Team

Alaskan Dog Mushing School Tour –
The Ultimate Dog Mushing Experience

The Alaskan Dog Mushing School is so much more than a dog sled ride. First you’ll gear up in warm dog mushing gear. Next you’ll meet and learn about our eager and friendly Alaskan huskies, the hearty dog breed favored by long-distance mushers.  Then you’ll learn to harness a team and hook them up to the dog sled.  As you hit the trail, you’ll discover the joy of dog mushing on beautiful forested trails. Your experienced musher will teach you to ride the dog sled runners and drive the dog team.

The fully immersive 2-hour Alaskan Dog Mushing School is a wildly popular dog sled tour.  It’s perfect for those who would like more than a dog sled ride and spend more time with the dogs.

Swing Sled Dog Tour –
$75/person for 2 or more

This ½-hour dog sled ride through glorious spruce and birch woods is a memorable experience. The trail swoops and winds through old boreal forest. A perfect dog sled tour for a taste of dog mushing and just the right length when it’s exceptionally chilly.

Lead Sled Dog Tour –
$125/person for 2 or more

1-hour sled dog tour in the same wooded forest; however, this tour may take you up and down short rolling hills or weave along the Yukon Quest Race Trail in and out of a thick birch forest. Glorious when the sunlight filters through making dog shadows in the snow.

A Wonderful Experience

A must if you are in or around Fairbanks and love dogs, the outdoors and experiencing something truly remarkable. The trails are well groomed and so, so, so beautiful. Eleanor is an amazing person – be sure to try the Mushing School and enjoy ! I loved every minute of it.

Totally, Unforgettable Magic!

…The exuberance of the dogs was a sight to behold, and to hear! And then when we got out onto the trail…blissful silence, as we shot along on the trail through spruce and birch. Sitting in the sled was great fun, but then sharing a spot on the runner and then…mushing on my own with Eleanor guiding from the seat. THAT WAS MAGIC, magic like nothing I have ever experienced. I stayed on, felt safe and brave and so proud of what I did! It was a powerful, soul-filling, never to be forgotten moment. This is the place to experience magic. That is the absolute truth. Go, do. It will take your breath away! What a thrill and what a heartwarming, incredible adventure…

Eleanor and her team at Just Short of Magic were amazing. It was everything I hoped it would be. We all had the most enjoyable experience. I definitely recommend you use Just Short of Magic for your dog sledding fun in Fairbanks.
