Last Tuesday, my husband and I went on the Dinner and Aurora Tour with Paws for Adventure. It was fabulous. First a wonderful dinner at A Taste of Alaska Lodge, Steak for him, Halibut for me, both prepared to perfection. Then on to the dog sled ride after dark. After checking out our attire (which we thought would be more... More

We were two senior citizen adults, two parents, and two girls (ages 5 and 7) on this dog sledding adventure. It's just enough adventure to give you a taste of what mushing is like, and our youngest group members loved it. The staff runs a good operation, and the mushers know what they're doing--and are able to describe what you're... More

Run -don't walk - to this fun adventure. My husband and I went on a fun early morning run with the dogs and Spencer. Spencer was an EXCELLENT guide. We talked about the dogs, how to take care of them, racing and... well.. everything else about the care of these athletes. I cannot tell you how much fun we had... More

Paws for Adventure really loves their dogs and takes good care of them. We had a beautiful one hour ride through the woods and over frozen ponds. We were given extra gear to stay warm, and I was even allowed to stand on the runner at the back of the sled to get a true idea of how dog mushing... More

If you are ever in the area I highly recommend paying them a visit. P.S. If you go in the winter make sure you dress accordingly... More

If you come to Fairbanks in the winter, put Paws for Adventure at the TOP of your 'must do' list. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, the dogs were so very sweet, and the ride was a thrill. An hour went by so quickly but the memory will last a lifetime!

It is my first dog sledding, I was exciting but need to overcome the freezing weather condition! I will say the dogs and the owner / staffs are so friendly! In the waiting room, Leslie provided us all the thick jacks, hats, gloves, boots and try to keep us warm, and try to make us have a nice ride with... More

Thank you for reviewing. You have visited us at a very odd time weather-wise. This year (on Dec. 1) we have not received enough snow to offer our dog SLED rides and have been offering our Fall dog CART rides. While the Cart ride is as much fun as you can have with sled dogs without snow, we look forward... More
