Juneau Dog Sledding Excursion Reviews

Dog sledding is a quintessential Alaskan experience- allow a team of strong huskies to pull you through Juneau's trails and countryside.
I love dogs, so this trip was tailor made.

I love dogs, so this trip was tailor made. I learned a lot about dog-sledding and enjoyed time with the dogs and their handlers. I would have liked to play with more puppies, but a newly-born litter was too young and the two pups that were available were monopolized by the kids on the tour. Read Less

This was everyone's favorite tour. The dogs pull sleds on terrain rather than in snow. The dogs were so excited to get going once our shuttle arrived. Being animal lovers we were very concerned that the dogs are doing what they love and it's obvious they are. The folks that work with them are extremely dedicated to their care and comfort. They let us play with the pups at the end which everyone loved as well. Great tour. Read Less

Sled ride was longer than expected. Information talks about the dogs, sledding, and races was very interesting. Got to pet all 16 dogs then got to meet a retired dog and meet and play with puppies.

Cannot say enough ...After having a very nice helicopter ride through some mountainous terrain and looking to wildlife along the way we were dropped onto the glacier in snow where the dog camp was located. We had great commentary on the helicopter and about the dogs and the camp and then had the opportunity to actually mush our own sled dogs. A tandem sled holding 2 couples and the camp leader gave each rider a chance to start and stop the dogs ...the ride alone was fun and we ran against other sleds. By far the best tour on our cruise....One comment...The helicopters stuff 4 adults into the back seat and you do have to hope that everyone shares space...Clearly a 10+ rating and worth the high price.

Ralph our driver, was very interesting and even told jokes. We drove 20 minutes into the rain forest to the dog sleds. The dogs were so excited to give us a ride and it was fun. We got to pet the dogs and puppies, learn about them and the Iditerod, walk on a suspension bridge, have hot chocolate. It was really fun. Our driver asked us if we would have time to go 10 min out of our way to view the Mendenhall Glacier. We loved that and got to get out and take pictures. Read Less

Amazing!!! The bus took us to the Iditarod summer dog camp and it was fantastic. We were able to interact with the dogs and then the dogs were hooked up to a sled and we went on a one mile journey which was fantastic. We then came back to camp and were given a tour of the facility as well as a history and ended with time with the puppies. Worth every penny!! Read Less
