Juneau Shore Excursion:Sled Dog Discovery & The Famous Musher's Camp

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
What to Expect
Close your eyes and imagine whisking through the Tongass National Rainforest being pulled by our well trained and amazingly energetic sled dogs.  This is one of the most popular tours for an Alaskan cruise.  You will get to see mushing up close and personal on this tour.  Our tour runs from May to September and due to summertime the sled dog adventure is on not on snow but on our sled with wheels.  This tour is great fun for the entire family! 

From the very start you can connect and play with the dogs. The location where they are trained and play is called the Musher's Camp and is the tour staging area where you get to meet the Mushers and hear their amazing tales of competing in races and mushing through Alaska. Every musher offers unique history and connection with their dog mushing teams and you will see the bond they share when you get out on the trail. 

Our track is mile long enjoyment lined by the huge stunning spruce and hemlock trees that belong in the rainforest. This tour is not only great for family's but a great one for photos.  Their are normally 16 strong huskies pulling you along. After your thrilling ride we head back to the camp where we offer you snacks and an informative presentation by one of the experienced mushers about the iconic Iditarod race across Alaska. Don't forget to take some time to cuddle the puppies, wander the camp, or ask any questions about this unique Alaskan sport! 

Please note:  Infants are welcome and are free, however need to sit on an adults lap.  We meet you at the cruise port and gurrantee to have you back in plenty of time for your cruise departure.  Places go early as we like to keep to small groups so book early to avoid disappointment.

What awesome animals! One of the best excursions on the cruise. The sled dog ride was one we won’t ever forget. And cradling a future Iditarod crew member in our arms was certainly a thrill!
