Active Adventure

Beginner Dog Sledding One Night/Two Days This is our most popular adventure where you'll get to drive your own dog team. Many of our our touring dogs are some of Ed's Iditarod veterns and hopefuls. On this adventure, you will learn the basics of mushing, how to drive a dog team, and spend one night winter camping in our heated tent. No experience is necessary as you will be under the care of one of our fabulous, experienced guides. Each guest will drive his or her OWN dog team (no shared sleds). Cost: $450/person weekdays and $500/person weekends and holidays.
