On this tour, snuggle under a warm blanket with a friend and enjoy the rush of a brisk 30-minute sled ride through the beautiful forests of Alaska.

Usually, time on site is about 1 hour, after which you will return to your hotel where you can rejoin the tour for lunch and the Fairbanks City Tour in the afternoon.

*Please note the sleds on this tour variously accommodate 2-4 people and are assigned by weight and the musher’s knowledge of the dogs. You will need to share your sled with other people. Please follow the musher’s guidance when he assigns seating.
