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.

Not sure this is the right name for our excursion. We booked a trip to the Klondike Gold Fields, where we learned about the Iditarod race, met 2 mushers who've finished this race, learned about the sled dogs and met them, and played with 5-week old puppies. We decided not to enjoy the -49 degree room (don't like cold weather anyway) and shopped for souvenirs instead. All the staff is very friendly. Read Less

We took turns guiding the sled. The dogs were wonderful and we had a chance to hold the puppies after our ride. This was the best excursion of the many we took during our trip.

After driving to the mushing camp and viewing beautiful scenery, it was time to drive up the mountain to go sledding. The mushers are interesting. Some are training for the Iditarod, and some have already participated in other events. After the dog sledding, there was the opportunity to hold the new puppies. Skagway is a charming little town.

So much better than we expected. This is a real Mushers Dog Sledding training camp. It was a beautiful drive with great tour info on the way up to the camp. The camp itself was new and clean. We had fun riding the sleds, meeting the dogs, playing with the puppies, and learning about dog sleg races from an actual musher. We traveled with 4 adults and 5 kids ages 8-13 and everyone loved the experience. Read Less

We did the Musher's Camp and Sled Dog Experience in Skagway. This was really fun and much better than I anticipated. Some of the guides have actually run or plan to run the Iditarod. The guides are very informative and you get to hold new puppies and pet younger puppies. A team of 16 dogs pulls up to 6 people on a special dog sled on wheels so you get the sense of how these dogs pull an actual dog sled in the winter. It is also great exercise for the dogs to keep in shape for preparing for the Iditarod. The dogs love the chance to run! Read Less

The idea of dog sledding on a glacier was better than the actual event.
The idea of dog sledding on a glacier was better than the actual event. Dogs were not the huskies we expected and some were very old to be pulling sleds.

Two excursions - helicopter to glaciers and dog sledding was awesome. The weather was beautiful. The dogs and mushers and a lot of fun. Also did a hike and float trip with Chilkut (sp). The 2 mile, 2 hour hike could be a bit challenging for some - a bit of steep climbs. Great guide and every interesting. Read Less

The elements of this excursion were enjoyable, but it was the only point on the trip that we felt like cattle. The excursion company seemed focused on keeping us on their schedule and boxed in - to their benefit not ours - until they parked us in a gift shop. Also, we paid ($20 per person above the excursion fee) to try the buffet, but it was inedible. That said the dog sledding segment was one of the highlights of the trip. Read Less

Not exactly dog sleeping, but a "mushers camp" excursion that came with our White Pass railroad tour. The camp was awesome and we learned so much from the owner of the camp and his experiences with the dogs and the Iditarod. My family can never get enough of petting those beautiful dogs and even better, holding the 8 week old puppies!!! We enjoyed this very much. Read Less

The dog sledding occurred in a wheeled cart on a road but still gave a you a sense of what the actual sledding my feel like. Sixteen dogs pulled an 800 pound cart containing 6 people. For the time we arrived the dogs were excited about being able to run and pull the cart. A short talk about the dogs and equipment used during the Iditerod Race was very informative. Being able to hold the 5 week old sled dog puppies was an added bonus. Read Less
