      About This Anchorage Tour

      Travel to Girdwood from Anchorage and experience Alaska’s number one sport! Although usually done during the winter, this tour allows you to experience dog sledding during a bright summer day. On this excursion, you’ll witness beautiful views, meet friendly puppies, and learn about the famous Iditarod dogsled race. You’ll be picked up by your expert guide and travel to Girdwood aboard a comfortable van. Snacks and bottled glacier water will be provided aboard. 

      Once you arrive at Girdwood, embark on an eight mile journey aboard an open air all-terrain vehicle. This panoramic experience will take you from sea level to an elevation of 1,000 feet along the historic Iditarod trail. At this elevation, you’ll catch some of the best views of Alaska’s mountainous landscape. Your guide will share the deep gold mining history of the area and the importance of the Iditarod trail before arriving at Girdwood Mushing Company’s dog kennel. 

      At this dog lodge, you’ll meet five-time Iditarod musher Nicolas Petit and his amazing team of sled dogs. Experience a live observation of dog handling techniques and interact with the dogs that ran 1,049 miles from Anchorage to Nome. Nick will personally hook the dogs to your dogsled cart before you begin your experience. Then, feel the raw power of these four-legged creatures as you travel through trails high up in the mountains. After your cart ride, visit the puppy pavilion for more tender moments with these furry creatures. 

      Before you go, snuggle with your favorite puppy for a great picture. You may also check out Iditarod memorabilia including Nick's racing sled, trophies, and all the gear and warm clothing that he needs to survive in temperatures of 40-60 below while racing. Then, enjoy a ride back to Anchorage aboard the van.
