Skagway Dog Sledding Excursion Reviews

Dog sledding isn't just for the freezing Alaskan winter! Let a team of strong huskies pull you through Skagway's trails and countryside.
It was fun learning about dog sledding.
Sail Date: September 2019
It was fun learning about dog sledding. Forget about seeing White Huskies with blue eyes though, they don't really exist in the sledding world.

The Musher's Camp was the highlight of the excursions. They take you by bus in the mountains were the Musher's camp is located. The whole way there the guide (Keith) is providing background on the dogs and their training. Once there, you are assigned to a summer sled and a musher that will lead the dogs. The dogs are super anxious to get going and they take you on a 1 mile trip. Afterwards, you get to meet the dogs and take pictures with them. Then they bring you to an outside building where you learn all about the history of the Iditarod. Then you get to hold and play with all of the puppies - some as young as 8 weeks old! Read Less

Fairly long drive into the 2nd valley, followed by a trek up the mountain in a unimog (a bit hard on the neck, but great scenery), then a quick dog sled ride (really fun...just too short). Got to learn about the dogs, pet the dogs, and even hold the puppies! All in all, lots of fun. Word of caution about the town - great fun to walk the town and shop...but the ship is much further away than you think. TAKE the shuttle back to the pier! Read Less

We scheduled an excursion from the port of Skagway to the summer sled dog camp and a dog “sled” ride. We were picked up at the port by Savino (“Savvy”), who provided interesting and sometimes amusing banter during the 75 minute trip up the Klondike Highway. Upon arriving at the sled dog camp, we had plenty of time to play with the dogs and pan for gold, with instructions provided by Savvy. The kids loved it. After a while, we took a ride on the ATV (which is used instead of a sled in summer), with a professional musher. It was great fun and gave us a better understanding of how the dogs are raised, trained and fed. On the ride back to Skagway Savvy made some stops -- including at a refreshing waterfall -- that enhanced our visit to this part of the world. I would definitely recommend Klondike Tours for an excursion adventure. Read Less
