Sirius Sled Dogs is located near the top Of Murphy Dome about 25 miles northwest of Fairbanks. It's a beautiful scenic drive culminating in what we believe to be the best of Alaska. Discover off the grid living at our cabin on Lincoln Ridge. An expansive view of Denali and the Alaska range are visible to the south. Murphy Dome is visible to the north where the Aurora often rises as each night falls in winter. « less

Fascinating visit with owners that truly love their sled dogs. Very interactive, hands on, ask any question type of visit. I felt it was an authentic glimpse of everyday independent Alaskan life, recreational dog sled use, and it's heritage. The dogs (and owners!) were accessible and super friendly. Because it was a sunny, summer day, the sled ride was brief... More

The Sirius Sled Dog adventure was the highlight of our Alaska trip! Not knowing what to expect, this venture far exceeded our expectations! Nita and Josh took us into their cabin, fed us wonderful home-cooked meals(coconut custard dessert) and let us help with any chores we wanted to. Of course, for the Kelly family, we jumped right in with feeding/harnessing/... More

Wow, what an adventure! I thought I was prepared for the excitement but was in for a surprise. I attended Sirius Dog Sled Tours while in Alaska, solo, but would have brought my kids if they were with me. Although I wished I had visited during the aura, flying around on a sled led by a team of dogs was... More

If you have dog sledding on your bucket list, Sirius does offer several great options for that special experience. They have options suitable for families including the young or the elderly through to the rejuvenating teenager as I like to call myself as I approach 50. We did look at the romantic night ride in the sled with the promise... More

We had a wonderful evening of Dog Mushing. The Dogs were so happy to take us for a magical ride through the snow. We lucked out with enough snow so late in the season and warm temps. The children loved learning all about DOg Mushing and my daughter was enchanted with the experience and Nita's accent. :) Thank You for... More

My aunt and I saw the most INSANE, amazing, fantastic, INCREDIBLE Aurora after we went mushing at Sirius Sled Dogs. The 6 mile ride was SO much fun!!!!!!!!!! The dogs love what they do and everyone there adores their dogs. What a special experience. HIGHLY recommended to everyone!

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to participate in the Mary Shield overnight winter dog sled tour back in February, and we had an absolutely amazing experience. Nita, Josh, Garrett, Frank & the Dogs were kind hosts, great company, patient teachers, and accommodating through out the entire trip. The many highlights of the trip include the beautiful scenery out... More

My wife and our three children, ages 9, 11, 13 visited Nita, Josh and Garrett and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The dogs were sweet, the handlers were kind to both the dogs and us and Nita made us feel at home. The 2+ hour sled trip was awesome and each of us had the chance to "drive" the sleds. All around...

Nita, Josh and Garrett have created an unsurpassable experience. We chose the midnight dog sledding with Aura viewing. While the lights did not dance for us, it was but a distant forethought. The real experience was their extended family: all 20 plus of them. We met the dogs, went on a midnight dog sledding run as snow fell upon the... More

With the long list of great reviews already on this page it will be no surprise that this is another. If there was a 10 star rating I would give it. Nita and Josh do a fantastic job of making your time with them an experience to remember. We were lucky to go to their place the night we arrived... More
