Winter Dog Sledding in Knik, Alaska
If you are brave enough to visit Alaska in the winter then you have to go dog sledding! Our 1.5 Hour or 3-hour winter dog sled tour is a great introduction to mushing. Drive or sit in the sled with one of our guides, learn all about how we train and prepare our dogs for races like the 1,000-mile Iditarod, hear exciting tales from the trail, and experience Alaska’s state sport for yourself!
We are the CLOSEST winter dog sled tour to Anchorage and are conveniently only 20 minutes from downtown Wasilla where there are plenty of excellent restaurants. Check our winter location. Our close proximity to Anchorage and Wasilla means less driving on winter roads and warmer temperatures!
Our tours are perfect for all ages, though our shorter 1.5-hour tour is recommended for participants under the age of 14.
