Dog Sled Camp Experience: Embark on a breathtaking ride into the remote and scenic Sheep Creek Valley, and to the home of some of the state’s most famous athletes - the Alaskan Huskies that run in the Iditarod! Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a real Iditarod musher and their dog team. You’ll tour the camp, visit the replica of an Iditarod Race checkpoint, and go through the steps each musher performs, as if you’re traveling the route with them. Next, climb aboard a comfortable wheeled cart and relax as your energetic Alaskan husky team guides you along the one-and-a-half-mile trail through beautiful landscapes. You’ll return to Dog Sledding Summer Camp for your chance to meet the dogs and snuggle the next generation of great Alaskan athletes: sled dog puppies! This family-friendly excursion is truly an authentic Alaskan experience.
