Owner description: Featuring Iditarod and Yukon Quest Athletes, Gold Rush Sled Dogs highlights summer cart-mushing in the picturesque Sheep Creek Valley. Situated within the historic Alaska-Juneau Gold Mine District, your ascent to dog camp follows the original mining road through dense temperate rain forest. Once in camp, you will be exposed to the musher's way of life and introduced to their teammates, the famed dogs of Alaska's official state sport. When ready, your musher will hook up the dogs and you will be whisked away aboard one of our specially designed wheeled carts for a thrilling ride along the scenic trail. Followed with everyone's favorite, the puppies, Gold Rush Sled Dogs is ideal for groups and mushers of all ages. We look forward to seeing you this summer, happy tails!

“Mushing with the Sled Dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

We just returned from an Alaskan Cruise and the most wonderful experience of meeting the Iditarod Summer Camp Sled Dogs and their keepers in Juneau, Alaska. Our Musher, Austin, was incredible - and our team of 14 amazing, beautiful dogs gave us a wonderful ride. We also got to meet the new puppies, which was the thrill of a lifetime - and getting to hold some of them!
This trip is not to be missed if you are traveling to Alaska. What these people do at this camp is truly amazing and we admire them greatly. The dogs all looked so happy - I alone took over 150 photos of these beautiful, loving animals. Thank you so much for affording us this amazing opportunity.

“Informative and fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

I really enjoyed this trip. Got off the cruise for a wander and heard about it from the shuttle into town. It was great to be able to see the dogs in action and the information provided by Matt was good. He was able to answer all questions posed. A simple idea that captures the experience of the race well.
