Skagway Musher's Camp and Sled Dog Adventure

This musher's camp and sled dog adventure is a thrilling excursion through Skagway's forests!

Discover the beauty and uniqueness of a true Alaskan pastime dog mushing! What better way to enjoy Alaska than to experience a team of powerful huskies pulling you on a wheeled cart through the great backcountry of a historic Gold Rush Site!

Hop aboard our tour van and start your excursion with a full narrative of historic Skagway as you cruise through town on your way to the Klondike Gold Rush National Park. The ride will take you along the waterfront of Dyea - a historic Gold Rush Settlement - full of rich history and outrageous scenery with plenty of opportunities to snap some breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and wildlife.

As you near our musher's camp, prepare yourself for the ride of your life on one of our custom made wheeled dogsleds, which are well suited for running on our one-mile wooded trail. Let the team mush on as you grab onto your seat for a truly authentic Alaskan Adventure!

After the ride, relax while you cuddle with some adorable Alaskan husky puppies, while enjoying a beverage as a guide fills you in on the life of a musher and his team in the Great White North!
