Trail Breaker Kennel is one of Alaska's legendary dog sled kennels. The kennel was established in 1974 by the late Susan Butcher, a four time Iditarod champion, and her husband David Monson, a Yukon Quest champion. By opening its doors in the summer, the kennel shows visitors what it is like to be a musher in the interior of Alaska. Starting in 1993, Trail Breaker Kennel became a favorite stop on the Riverboat Discovery tour. Visitors are treated to a dog mushing demonstration on the shore of the Chena River. After, at the Chena Indian Village, they meet the people and dogs who make up this champion kennel. For tickets and more information visit riverboatdiscovery.com. Walking tours of Trail Breaker Kennel are offered daily at 7:30pm through Holland America Princess Tours. Make your reservation in person before 5pm at the Tour Desk at the Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge or Westmark Fairbanks Hotel & Conference Center. Tours cannot be booked online or over the phone.
