Alaska Dog Sledding at its Best!

Experience the Swing Sled Dog Tour

Dog Sledding Alaska Style!
The 1/2 Hour Swing Sled Dog Tour

Your dream of Dog Sledding Alaska comes true when you join an experienced dog musher and a team of eager huskies. The trail swoops and winds down forested winter trails in the heart of interior Alaska’s Chena River Valley.

While mushing a team of huskies on the trail, it’s not uncommon to see ptarmigan, spruce hens, moose and snowshoe hare tracks, maybe even a cow moose and her calf. (Moose are sighted weekly in our field adjacent to the dog yard). Ravens often swoop down and fly along the trail ahead of us. We will travel along beaver ponds and even onto parts of the Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race trail

A perfect dog sled tour for a taste of dog sledding and just the right length for a dog sled ride when it’s exceptionally chilly.  Our half-hour Swing Sled Dog Tour is an exhilarating introduction to Alaska’s state sport of Dog Sledding.
