Imagine it is the early 1900’s. It’s mid-winter; the days are short and temperatures cold. There are few roads and lots of snow on the ground. You have to get to the next town to trade your wares.You gather the dogs, leash them to the sleigh and off you go!
Well, it's actually 2013 and mushing is still a major part of Alaska and Alaskan history. Alaskan Dario, a nine-time Iditarod veteran, and his athletic huskies are here to give you the ride of a lifetime. Take a tour of the kennels, see the puppies and hear the history and real life experiences of mushing. From there, feel the wind on your face and see the trees race by as the dogs whisk you through Moose Meadows. Take your experience and adventure one step further and grab the opportunity to drive the dogs along the path. Do you have what it takes?
Don't miss out on the adventure of a lifetime. The tour listed below can be book with Alyeska's Concierge Desk: 907-754-2108. The Concierge Desk is located next to the Front Desk at The Hotel Alyeska.
Dario and his huskies show you the softer side of Alaska as your group mush through the beautiful, pristine wilderness of Moose Meadows. While the moonlight illuminates your path, look up at the starry Alaskan sky for a chance to see the Northern Lights dancing overhead, a beautiful culmination to your evening.
