Loved it!

I had a great time dog mushing with Paws for Adventure. The place was easy to find and the heated yurt was much needed to warm up my toes after mushing. I did a 30-minute mushing... read more

'Paws for Adventure', located very close to 'A Taste of Alaska' lodge, is a fantastic experience for those who are interested in dog sledding. The staff at 'Paws' was friendly, took good care of us, let us visit with and assist in preparing the dogs for our journey, and then took us on a thrilling dogsled ride through the grounds.... More

We visited this place off season, July. I know most people come here during the winter time but I can't handle the cold . We came here to see the dogs. Owner, Leslie showed us around and introduced to dogs. She gave us an extended tour of the dog lot and lakes about sled dogs racing activities. My heart melted... More

We wish we'd booked a longer tour! Reilly & his team drove us through a Currier & Ives landscape. It was the first morning run & the snow was fresh & so were the dogs! Wow- they are fast! And full of personality. We had a blast!

Did the 1 hour ride/tour with Chase, was a fantastic day. The snow was fresh and the trail was beautiful, both wooded and open areas let the dogs do their thing, which they loved to do. Chase explained the art and sport and life as a dog team musher, it was clear that the dogs loved him. THIS is day... More

You must go here if you're around Fairbanks. The trail is beyond beautiful and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The dogs are the stars of the show! Totally worth it.

We did the mushing school with Leslie and her skilled team and loved every minute of it. Leslie covered the basics of dog sledding and let us participate in each step of the way (harnessing & hooking the dogs up to the line, etc.). The dogs are clearly well cared for and got so excited when we hooked them up... More

A great time from start to finish. We did the 3 hour mushing school and it was unforgettable. Kevin was a great teacher and patient and Leslie's husband took pictures of us from various locations while we rode on the trail. Definitely a must do if you are in the area :)

We did the 1 hour mushing taster and wish to come back in the future to do one of the overnight experiences. Fantastic fun and experience and you might even get a short try of controlling the sled ( although I thought the dogs were really in charge of me) Clearly they are very passionate about the dogs and we...
