This was a wonderful thing to do with the whole family.
If you are staying within a few miles of the Denali entrance, they will pick you up and return you to your hotel. Our driver was none other than Jeff King, 4-time Iditarod winner. He is a colorful character and a fascinating person.
When you get off the shuttle, you are immediately handed a bundle of warm fur. Who can resist a 2-week old warm puppy? They are simply irresistible (eyes closed, pink paws, velvety fur)! Then they describe the training process and give demonstrations outside.
Afterwords, you go inside and sit and listen to Mr. King talk about the race. He is really entertaining and the time goes by quickly.
It is a little pricey, but it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and you get a true feel of what it must be like to live in Alaska. There are coupons for it in some of the visitors' brochures, and they do offer some discounts. I would definitely recommend it!
