I loved this. 16 dogs pull you over gravel. Then you meet them and give them rubs, and they are so sweet. Afterwards you go to see the puppies and hold them. Scenery is beautiful on the way up and back- we saw tons of eagles. It was truly breathtaking. Skagway itself is a snooze fest. This is the longest port, and it is by far the most boring. Things are not close by, so you really need to book an excursion or two here because you won't just "find" them by walking around. Read Less

Unfortunately it was too late in the season to take a chopper to the glacier to do real dog sledding. All camps had shut down for the season but still offered the mushers camp experience. You got to meet all the dogs (and puppies too) a good little presentation on Iditarod and dog sledding by a team of dogs through the forrest on a cart. It was an amazing experience and worth every penny. Entire family loved every minute of this excursion. Read Less

The unimog ride is a blast! Definitely a must do when your in Skagway, it's a fun time for a good cause. Read Less

We went on the dog mushing excursion and it was fantastic, a real highlight of our trip. The scenery alone on the drive up to the mountain in the motor coach was well worth the money. Throw in the Unimog ride up the gravel mountain road to the top and the actual dog mushing and this was a really amazing adventure. The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. The Iditarod Dogs were the best - it was thrilling riding the cart behind them. Last but not least, we loved playing with the puppies! We would definitely do this again! Read Less

On our way up to the train depot our tour made a stop at the dog musher camp. The man giving the tour has run the Iditarod race 7 times and shows all of his equipment and explains everything vividly- he is wonderful at his job! He had our small group quite captivated. Our 5 year old is extremely afraid of dogs so we worried about this part of our tour but it went very well actually. When you are introduced to the dogs they are behind a gated area and she was able to stand WAY back, while everyone else could go up to them fence and love on the dogs as much as they wanted. They hooked up a 6 dog team and showed us how they run with a sled and how excited the dogs get when they realize they have been picked to GO. Then comes the best part- you get to hold and love the puppies! Even our very scared daughter got in on the action - of course the 12 day old puppies were the thing;) If he hadn't counted them out exactly I'm sure a few would have gone home with the guests, including us, as they were so sweet and cuddly. Wonderful Experience- A MUST DO! Read Less
