About This Denali Tour
As soon as you arrive at Husky Homestead to begin your tour, the fun starts when you are handed an adorable Alaskan Husky puppy to cuddle with. These puppies will eventually grow up to be dog sled champions. With their tails wagging, their eagerness will immediately put you at ease.
Husky Homestead is not just an attraction, but also the home of “The Winningest Musher in the World”, Jeff King. You will also find 50 of the finest canine athletes in the world. This experience will give you some insight into what it takes to make an elite championship dog sled team as well as what Alaskan rural life is really like. Their standard at Husky Homestead is to be the best and you’ll see that on your tour. Experience this firsthand as you see the Huskies bolt out of the yard on a training run. You will then be able to see these top canine athletes run on an enormous fifty-foot treadmill as they train for their next race. Next, listen to stories from the dog sled racers themselves as they explain what it takes to go the distance on the long journey of a dog sled race. They will also go in depth about their tactics and the purposes of their gear. These activities are fun for the whole family and will become one of the best memories on your Alaskan vacation.
Round-trip transportation is included from select Denali area hotels including: Grande Denali, Denali Bluffs, McKinley Chalets, Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge, Denali Park Village, Denali Grizzly Bear, and the Denali Cabins. Just let us know your preference during check-out.
