After 4 Iditarods and a decade of training and racing sled dogs we have decided to take a year off and just have some fun. Over the past ten years we have seen many victories, vet care awards, sportsmanship awards and a few failures. However, the love for the dogs has been the constant. Four years ago we ventured into the tour industry and have been able to share the excitement of sled dogs with thousands of people. With our new trail location we have gained greater versatility in delivering a customized package for our guests. This year we plan on focusing on delivering a superior experience whether it is your first time or a repeat customer. As part of the tour you will not only get to meet all the Iditarod dogs and learn how the equipment works ,including harnessing and hooking up your own team, we will give you the opportunity to learn how to drive your own team.
I also love sharing the many tales from the Iditarod trail that the dogs and I have experienced over the past four years. From the awesome display of northern lights to surviving the worst of storms that Alaska has to offer. You are guaranteed a half day of excitement and memories that will last a lifetime. You can bring your love for the dogs and enjoy the wonderful comradery only experienced by the unconditional commitment that sled dogs have to offer.
New for this year we will be offering different media packages including photos of you and your family or friends as you mush a dog team in some of the most beautiful country ever created. Our guides and I will document your entire trip from the time you arrive until your final good byes to the dogs. The photo package includes many pictures of your interaction with the dogs and you as you learn to mush your own dog team, as well as an unedited disc of your experience that you can choose which are the best and make posters, postcard or a photo album and the cost is $35.00 per sled and will be available upon completion of the tour.
I must say, the best part of my job is hearing the many people who time and time again tell us that this was the greatest thing they have ever done. So come and enjoy an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.
