We just drove in to see the dogs on top of their kennels. Enjoyed the drive along through the bush to get there. We did not want to spend the money on an expensive meal. We have a friend who celebrated a 9 year olds birthday. They found the sledding real fun. We had done sledding in Seward, Alaska so... More

My friend went and stayed at Muktuk and highly praised so when we made the plan to go to Yukon, she strongly recommended us to go. We didn't stay overnight because at the time it's too cold to have running water in their cabins but we booked the full day training package for the whole family. Great place for dog-sledding...

Frank (owner) has been in the business for a long time and is in the process of transitioning ownership to people with similar respect and care for dogs. All materials were... More

The team here is wonderful! They love their dogs and it is very clear that the dogs are their passion. Customer service is friendly and warm. I have been now three years in a row and will continue to return.
