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...

My husband and I visited the day before Thanksgiving. It was the day after the first snowfall of the season so it was the first time that the dogs had actually pulled a sled on snow since last spring. We each got a half hour ride and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our guide had great information and we learned a... More

Five of us went Dog Sledding with Paws for Adventure over the Thanksgiving break and it was probable on of the best experiences I've had in Alaska. The mushers knew so much about each dog and were excellent hosts. Between rides we were allowed to interact with each dog and see their individual personalities, even play with their puppies. This...

We took our two boys aged 4 and 6 to paws for adventure for a dog sled tide. There wasn't much snow so the dogs pulled a 4 wheeler instead. That did not detract in any way from the fun the boys had. They got to cuddle 5 week old puppies as well as meeting quite a few of the... More

Five of us from Washington, DC did an overnight mushing trip along the Tanana River back in February with Leslie and her Paws Team. It was a lifetime experience, and something I'd do again in a heartbeat if/when I'm back in Fairbanks. Some thoughts a few months later: Mid-February (President's Day Weekend) was still a little early in the season,... More

And survived it most skillfully! You guys were awesome, an easy crew to share the trail with even when Mother Nature throws us a curve ball. Looking forward to sharing another mushing adventure. Happy Calm and Sunny Trails! -Leslie and Dave More
