Fantastic double adventure. Mike flew us expertly to the Godwin glacier. We were greeted enthusiastically by Wyatt, Ann and many dogs ready to run. Our ride was as close to perfect as it could be. Once back, Sarah let us play with two 4 week old pups. Thanks you all so much!!!

Wonderful time getting to know the Iditarod dogs and learning about the race. The guy giving the tour was very friendly and informal. He really took his time in showing us around and tending to the grandkids on a personal level! Loved riding the dog sled thru the woods and watching them get so excited when it was time to... More

We did the glacier tour, which was absolutely phenomenal!!! I've been wanting to do this for the longest time and am so glad I booked with Turning Heads :) You can tell Sarah and the guides on the glacier LOVE their jobs and the dogs. They are accommodating, informative, and give you more than enough time to enjoy the dog... More

Our family of four visited with Travis and Sarah. We were the only people in our tour. I was unprepared for the the passion and enthusiasm of both Sarah and Travis, but of the dogs as well. We learned a lot about dog mushing and then took a ride (after playing with puppies). We felt like this was one of... More

We had a fantastic time at the Turning Heads Kennel. Travis explained us passionately how the preparation of the winter tour works. We met the dogs and hold the 10-days-old puppies. After that we went for a little ride on the summer sled.

My aunt (72) and I went at the very early part of the season when not all activities are up and running in Alaska. I can't say enough about how professional everyone was, from the girls at the counter who helped us get out boots on ( awesome idea by the way to provide boots so you do not have... More

Our dog-sledding ride was fantastic! Travis, Sarah & Co. were wonderful. Many of their dogs are actual Iditarod racing dogs, so the experience feels authentic and not like an average tour. Travis and Sarah were also exceptionally nice.

We drove 2.5 hours down to Seward to do a tour with THK with our friends who were visiting from Belgium. We booked the trip 6 weeks out and called to confirm and add a person to our tour a week before. We showed up with our confirmation email in hand and were met in the parking lot being told... More

We are sorry that you felt like you weren't well taken care of at our kennel. However, we do feel like we did right by you. When you showed up to our kennel, an hour early, we were beginning to get our kennel ready for your tour. Travis was training part of his Iditarod team and I was putting on... More

I just have to say they are great people and the tour was out of this world. It is a once in a life time deal and they just made it everything you could dream of.
