Brilliant and a great experience. The four of us are over 60 and you are not too young to do it. Fun all the way. An experience we would like to do again. The staff were great and not forgetting the dogs they were too but never let go of them.1

Having struck out at EVERY SINGLE hotel in Whitehorse, we decided to head out of town around 11:00 p.m. (still light in late May) in hopes of finding something in the next town (quite a distance away - our cell phone service was on the decline, too). Not far out of Whitehorse, we saw a sign for Muktuk Adventures (also... More

What a great afternoon - I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon out on the frozen Takhini River driving my team of 5 amazing dogs!! It was so much fun and whilst these are working dogs they really do seem to love what they do - they are well looked after and the guides are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend... More

I wasn't expecting the Dog sledding to be as fun as it was. At first I was nervous about controlling the dogs myself but it turned out easy everything was explained well! Definitely give it a try. Even if you don't think you'll enjoy the ride the views you get are totally worth it!

Took a german visitor out to Muktuk for him to experience dog sledding. When I picked him up he had a gigantic smile on his face. The guides were VERY accommodating and all the staff were gracious and very kind. Really enjoyed my time there even though I was not the one on the tour. THANK YOU!

I recently returned from my life-time adventure to learn how to mush dogs. I attended the Rookie Musher Ranch Plus 2 at the MukTuk Kennels. The staff at the Ranch were all phenomenal. They are pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable about all the dogs. They made the stay that much more fun and interesting. I was fortunate enough to see Frank... More

My husband and I spent two nights at Muktuk and went on the full day sledding tour. We had visited in the fall and gone on a training run with the cart, but were really keen to try our hand at sledding in the snow. The experience did not disappoint at all! It is almost impossible to describe the feeling... More

Awesome experience with MukTuk Adventure. We did the 1/2 day and I left with the desire to do more. It is a real cool experience in harmony with nature and animals. It made me want to know & experience more. Our guide was very nice & helpful and we had a fun time in the sun.

I joined a full day tour in March. Obviously, dogsledding was wonderful. The staff were so great. Unfortunately I lost my camera during the ride, but to my surprise, they found my camera and bring it to my hotel the next day. I'm glad I joined a Muktuk tour. I'll be back again!
