The dog sledding camp (no snow though) was fun but wish it had been with snow. Very informational. Dogs were being trained for real dog sled race. Also got to pet the puppies. Cute!

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
