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.

Took my 6 and 7 year old sons for this excursion after our helicopter tour for snow dog sledding was cancelled. This was a great alternative. Nice ride to the camp and then a "mog" up the hill for sledding with the dogs. They put 6 people on an cart for the dogs to pull. And then they pull your for a mile- it's not super fast until you get to the end. After the ride, you meet the dogs that pulled your sled. They then take you back down the hill to hear about the Iditarod. Finally, you get to meet and hold the puppies- so cute! That was definitely the highlight. My kids loved it. They also have a shop and sell pictures they took during the ride and with the puppies. Read Less

Took way too long to get there by bus. Only had 45 minutes, and there was only one seat open on the dogsled. Way too far, too rushed, and not worth it. Bad BBQ.

Some of the camps you book with the cruise line are just for profit operations. Read Less

The ship was docked at the pier closest to town, but there was a convenient shuttle for $2 one way or $5 all day. We spent a couple of hours in the morning shopping, and then did an afternoon Sled Dog Training and Musher Camp tour with Alaska Excursions. This was a fun way to learn about the famous Iditarod dog racing and meet the dogs and hold the puppies. Our guide was great, had a fabulous sense of humor and kept us all engaged with his knowledge of Alaska, Skagways gold rush days, the dog racing and the area in general. The dog sled ride (actually on wheels) through the wooded trail was a blast, but half the fun in getting to the camp was the ride through the steep hills and the twists and turns. As a bonus, we were given multiple stops along the way for some incredible views. Read Less

The Klondike Family Experience (Gold Rush Sled Dogs) included meeting the sled dogs/puppies, learning about the Iditarod race, panning for gold, dredge tour, soda history and tasting, bottling tour, and we were able to bottle and label our own bottle of root beer. There was also lunch provided. Learning about the musher's racing experience and the sled dogs and meeting the dogs was awesome. The gold panning was fun for the kids and we enjoyed watching them do it. The dredge tour was interesting, but at that point our kids were ready to head out... I wish they had left out all the soda stuff...and the provided lunch so we could of headed out in time to eat elsewhere. The food was just mediocre and the soda stuff was a bit random.... It was just a bit too much packed in like they were trying to fill time to justify the price...We would of preferred a slightly lowered price and less time there. The sledding and panning for gold alone would be perfect and then maybe have people around the dredge to answer questions so you can do a semi self guided tour of it. Read Less

Kevin with Alaska X excursions was a lot of fun as our guide and driver to the Dog Sled training camp. This was a fun excursion and the trip up to the mountain was very interesting. We were given time to visit with the dogs that pulled our slide around the mountain camp area. Then time to pet the puppies. The camp grounds provide a clean bathroom and small gift shop area, all in a setting alongside a waterfall. Read Less

The dog mushing camp was a great tour. There was a scenic drive followed by a ride in an all terrain vehicle up a mountain. On top was the mushers' camp where you take a wheeled sled through the woods pulled by sixteen Alaskan Huskies. This was followed by petting the dogs. learning about the Iditarod, and holding puppies. All dog lovers would be thrilled by this experience. Our guide Joseph was a fantastic personality/wannabe comedian. I highly recommend this tour. Read Less
