About Gold Rush Dog Sled Tours
Gold Rush Dog Tours highlights summer cart-mushing in the picturesque Sheep Creek in Juneau, Alaska. Your approach to dog-camp will bring you by the relics of Juneau's famed mining history, transporting you through the rain forest from sea level to our mountain valley home. While in camp, you will meet the Handlers and Mushers of Sheep Creek, as well as their teammates, the famed dogs of Alaska's official state sport. Following proper introductions, dog sled history, and a little mushing 101, you will take to our specially designed trainer carts for a 20 minute ride. Be sure to watch for porcupine, eagles, and even the potential black bear along the way. And then, there's cookies. Upon returning, it's time to grab a cookie and hot cup of cocoa prior to departing ways for your next adventure. Gold Rush Sled Dogs is ideal for groups and mushers of all ages. We look forward to seeing you this summer, happy tails!

After visiting this place I have totally changed my mind on dog sled racing. The “summer camp” is in a beautiful valley with waterfalls coming down the surrounding mountains. Stunning location. When the van pulls in, over 100 dogs of all shapes and sizes are...More

We are dog lovers and wanted to experience a real dog sled training tour. All the tour guides were super professional who informed us of what to expect. It was worth every minute especially if you love dogs.
