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.
Super interesting to learn about the team, also to get a little taste of it!

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
