Dog sled tour and puppy petting

Our kids loved petting puppies and employees were very helpful. The short dog sled tour was very good and much cheaper than other places.

The best race on the planet in my opinion! There's everything available during this race including a mushing mortician.

I visited this place in summer, so I could not ride dog sled, but they still offer dog ride for $10.

Great place to visit for an insight into the great race. Great Iditarod store. You must visit the puppy petting area and pay $10 for a ride in the dogsled through the property. This place is run by a non-profit so have fun there and spend money to support the great race.

7/14/15 - We arrived a couple of minutes before they opened at 8:00am and saw dogs unloaded one by one from a truck. Joe was helpful and informative. We couldn’t understand the dog cart ride operator, who also had poor hearing, but I clearly understood him when he named, with affection, each of the dog’s names. Each dog actually turned... More

Downtown Anchorage is alive in the dead of winter with excitement about sled dog racing. Take the time to go to Willow (70 miles north) to see the real start of the Last Great Race on Sunday. Watch the mushers build their teams as they get ready for the start. Every 2 minutes the teams leave for Nome. The entire... More

I live in Alaska. The Fur Rondy and the Iditarod start, both in March, are a GREAT time to visit this great state. It is light 12 hours a day and there is still snow to play with. Rooms and cars are plentiful and cheap and nobody is here. You can visit Talkeetna and Girdwood on a day trip or... More

The museum/Headquarters is small. It had some photos of sled dogs and their owners who had previously won the Iditarod. They offer sled dog rides, but it lightly rained on the morning we attended the HQ so the dogs weren't there (because of mud?? - Didn't make sense to us since they run in snow all the time). So we...

Seeing the Ceremonial Start of "The Last Great Race" is worth the trip. Whether it's the adrenalin-soaked atmosphere of downtown Anchorage--with hundreds of people and dogs, or a quieter spot along the Chester Creek trial just a few miles away, there's nothing like it!
