Puppies and more puppies
Sep 2019
What a great excursion! Our tour guide, Clint, was extra special. He lives in Skagway and shared the history of the town and the surrounding areas. When we got to the mushers camp, there was an informative presentation about mushing and the Iditarod. After that, we got to meet and hold some 3 month old puppies and then some one month old ones. They were cute and cuddly. It was an unforgettable experience.

Thank you to Rachel for pointing us over hear when we got off the ship. Give her a raise! Loved dogwarts!

An amazing setting.
Sep 2018 • Couples
We were at first disappointed that we could not do the sled ride and had to book for this tour. However, I think we probably had the best experience ever.
We were picked up from the cruise ship and our guide was an extremely knowledgeable young man who had great stories to tell about his life in Skagway and with the sled dogs. You could tell he had a passion for the dogs, it oused from every pore in his body.
When we arrived at camp after a glorious drive through the most spectacular landscape, we went off to create our delights around the bonfire. We had biscuits, chocolate and marsh mellows to create a camping feast and there was a lot of it, too sweet for me mind (Diabetic).
We then had a talk from an Iditarod musher and he explained how they liked to socialise the dogs, the race etc, it was very interesting to hear.
As we were not sleding we had oodles of time playing with the puppies who were just sooooo adorable. Mummy dogs were a delight and liked a cuddle too. We spent time with the juvenile dogs who had loads of energy and loved a good old scratch behind the ears. It was a delight to have so much time interacting with the dogs themselves. We have four dogs at home so we were made up with this.
On the way back to the jeep we walked along the river and found a bear paw print and bear poo, all terribly exciting.
The weather was brilliant, the valley we were in was out of this world and we loved every second of this.

Relaxing Experience First thing in the Morning off the Cruise Ship
Sep 2018 • Family
We have two little ones age 4 and 7 so we opted for the experience that allowed them to see puppies and roast some s’mores. The guide who picked us up was awesome (can’t remember her name but she splits her time between Skagway and and Arizona). She pointed out interesting sights along the drive out and back. She also stopped so we could take pics along the way. At the camp we got to meet someone who competed in the Iditarod and was able to give first hand knowledge of the race and mushing in general. Then we got to meet the puppies (a highlight of our trip for the kids) and finished with s’mores roasting. Overall a great experience and one I would recommend if your looking for a relaxing experience that includes puppies and chocolate.

It was everything we were promised a real thrill to be led my the sled team consisting of 16 dogs, getting to spend time with them afterwards and of course the puppies. The real highlight was hearing how excited the dogs are to be going sledding. Oh yes and again the puppies!!!

Have to give credit to "Austin", the tour bus driver to the musher camp. He gave us his best to liven up the ride and give historic narrations to and from the camp. The camp was very clean, with buildings all looking new, and well run with very capable tour guides and employees. Heard a very enjoyable and fascinating talk by an Iditarod veteran onsite as part of the tour. Sled dog pull in "wagon", seeing the variety of dogs - incl. puppies, good look at the facility, all made for a very enjoyable time spent there!

Puppies says it all
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah..nice scenery and yummy s’mores and all, but sled dog puppies y’all!! We loved on dem puppies, and I still want the lil black one below!! I would love to see it when grown! A big “thank you!!” to our great tour guide, Austin T. Funny and informative, he made us feel welcome, comfortable, and is very personable. Later, he dropped us right back at the Soltice, which was so handy. It’s important to look for a tour that will do that for visitors, as paying for shuttles is no fun. On another note, the young lady who was at the pier to collect the visitors initially (then turn them over to a tour guide), wasn’t very friendly and was quite engrossed in her phone instead of collecting and engaging the pre-paid visitors. I’m glad she was not a tour guide. We had a lovely time and enjoyed the mushers camp!! All ages will enjoy this excursion.

Chocolate and puppies...do you need anything else?
Jun 2018 • Family
So the brochure photo is really unfair. A puppy...really?! Hooked us from the git-go. Anyway, we were picked up by Tim and took the very scenic (back massaging in some parts) road out to the mushers camp. I swear people are going to think we just grabbed postcards and took pictures. The scenery itself was worth the trip. and we haven't gotten to the puppies and s'mores. We joined a tour with a musher explaining the race and the care of the animals and then were taken over to the...puppy area?!...maternity pens?!...puppy place and got plenty of time with the little puppies. What's really cool is this is part of their training so you feel like you are helping too. After puppy time, we were taken to a campfire and given s'mores kits and were allowed to basically get the best sugar high you possibly could. Although the tour was only 2-3 hours long, it was well worth it and according to my 11 year old puppy fanatic, was the highlight of the cruise. Tim was an outstanding guide and gave us a ton of insight into the area and made us feel at home right from the start. I would highly recommend this excursion for families (even those with small children) as they really do a great job of accommodating those with special needs and moving at their own pace.
