Tour Contents: Before Europeans arrived in Alaska, dog sledding was already a very important part of Alaskan local life. Dog sleds were the most convenient way to travel and to deliver important supplies between local villages in the dead of winter. Even today, dogsleds continue to be used in remote portions of Alaska for daily travel needs. 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. Your musher will happily take photos for you and with you. You will be won over by both these enthusiastic Alaskan Huskies and their mushers.
Tour pick-ups begin at 10:00 a.m. Please be ready in the lobby of your hotel. You will travel to the outskirts of town, a journey which will last about 1 hour depending on road conditions.
After arrival, you will be able to take photos with the dogs, enjoy some hot drinks while being assigned to a sled. Your ride will last 30 minutes. Depending on the size of your group, there may be more than 1 round of sleds that go out before you depart to return to Fairbanks. 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.
