Loved riding the sleds with the dogs and helping harness the dogs. Great experience for the whole family. Only negative was Ryan. He was negative about everything including things about sledding, and even interrupted our conversation to tell us our future plans were bad as well.

Amazing way to explore Alaska!

It was amazing to experience multiple things all in one tour. We were able to ride in a helicopter, learn about the dogs, how to opporate a dog sled, see the cutest dogs and puppies, and have amazing people there helping and educating us on everything. All while admiring beautiful scenery from the glaciers to rivers and more. Truly an amazing experience and highly recommend to others. Thank you!

I would highly recommend this tour. The staff is phenomenal! They go out of their way to ensure that your experience is worthwhile. They are kind, energetic, and professional. BOOK THIS TOUR! You will remember this experience for the rest of your life. The views are outstanding -- and the pups are too die for. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

We loved it. Dogs laying around when we got there but came to life when guide picked up harness. "Pick me, pick me!" Howling to be able to pull sleds. Some funny. And the puppies so cute. Fat butterball
