Full description

Get an authentic taste of the “Last Frontier” on this mushing tour experience in Fairbanks.

Meet the dogs and experience the excitement with them as they power down the snow International Yukon Quest trail. Stop at the half-way point to take unbeatable photos.

Start your experience getting to know your group of adventurers in an authentic Mongolian yurt warmed by a cozy wood stove. Once geared up for the elements, step outside to be introduced to your canine team.

Learn about handling the huskies and how to harness and hook up a team, then take off into the snow.

Mush amongst snow-capped black spruce through the twists and turns of the slough. Keep your eyes peeled for moose.

Take advantage of beautiful sun-drenched photo opportunities with your fellow adventurers before returning back to the Mongolian yurt to warm up from the trail and get an opportunity to purchase souvenirs to remember the adventure.

A BIG WOW!!!! Obviously this is an amazing experience, especially for a guy from NJ,,,and in addition to the newness of the basic ALASKAN dream,,,,the service provided was top notch! Chase our dog sledge trainer/ master was a terrific companion, leader, storyteller and fun guy to be around. The whole team, Including Laura who lead our second team was terrific.
