Chase was awesome and his dogs too, they all had such great personalities and we learned a lot about the dogs and the mushing process. The ride through the woods was cool and we highly recommend stopping in to spend some time here. Excellent!

We went for dog mushing experience on our last day in Fairbanks and oh boy did we love it!!! Chase is such a friendly guy and very accommodating. He really knows his craft and even told us some histories of mushing and some information about the mushing racing in the area. And best of all we get to explore the area on the sled pulled by these magnificent dogs and get to play with them before and after the trip. The weather was perfect! Its a perfect winter wonderland experience for us! Thank you Chase! We highly recommend Last Frontier Mushing coop to anyone who will go travel to Fairbanks Alaska! A-Must-Thing to do while in Fairbanks and make sure you choose Last Frontier Mushing Co-op for a guaranteed fun filled adventure!

This was the best thing we did on our vacation in fairbanks! My group of 6 was full of extreme dog lovers and we were so excited for this. It exceeded our expectations and then some. Our guide Chase was amazing. So knowledgable, accommodating, and you could tell he truly truly cares for these dogs. If you are looking into booking a kennel experience I cannot recommend Last Frontier Mushing Co-Op now. Book Now!!!

Our 2 teenagers loved their adventure with Chris and were so impressed by his relationship with the dogs and his gentle control over them. It was a perfect adventure into the world of dog mushing. We were only disappointed by how short the run was. It had been advertised as an hour run with the dogs but they returned in under 30 minutes. It may have been due to the 40 degree temps being too hard on the dogs but no one informed us of that up front.

Thank you for the wonderful review! The trail time should have been 45-55 minutes long, you are correct. There could have been a couple of varying factors as to why your trail time was less (i.e. hot conditions vs fast trail, or late arrival time). Regardless we should have told you why it was a shortened trail, so I sincerely apologize for the lack of communication on our end. In the future, we will make sure to verbalize this to our guests, thank you for bringing this to our attention. If you visit Fairbanks again (summer or winter) we'd be happy to give you a discounted tour to get you some more time on the trail and with the dogs!

What a joy to ride with experienced and in-training dogs (and drivers) that race the Yukon Quest. I had been hesitant to book this excursion (I am an Alaskan and it seemed a bit cheesy). Boy, was I wrong! The Co-op consists of racers and dogs that are not only sharing their knowledge of mushing, their dogs, and racing with us, but these guys are all in training to perform peak performance in their sport and are taking along to be part of it. The joy these dogs exude doing what they love was a thrill and honor to witness. I completely recommend this trip with this Co-op no matter if you are visiting Alaska or a seasoned Alaskan. Thank you for this wonderful trip!

The guides were genuinely friendly, respectful, and extremely knowledgeable. When we arrived, we were brought into a genuine Mongolian yurt that was warm. We were seated and important information was shared; this was also the time to pick any warm items needed like super warm coats, boots, etc. We then went outside, two people per sled. We were first introduced to each dog; each was calm, quiet, and loved being patted. Not one jumped up on a person ever. If you wanted, you could learn how to put a harness on a dog and do it.

Two persons then climbed into a warmly lined cover on each sled, and zipped in. As soon as the first dog was led to be harnessed to the sled itself, that is when the dogs became very excited about their work, with happy howls galore!

Each sled zipped along through the woods and fields; it was altogether thrilling. Our guide explained what the dogs were doing and why, and answered any question we threw at him. It was beautiful being in the Alaskan woods as well as amazing to see the dogs hard at their work and loving it!

There was a short break in the middle where the photos happened of people, dogs, guides. Then back to the yurt to change out clothes and boots, and warm up by the wood stove with more information and questions answered. These were delightful guides who loved what they did. I heartily recommend this experience!

We found Last Frontier on Trip Advisor and thankfully the reviews were spot on. Amanda and Simon taught us a bit of history surrounding dog sledding in Alaska and how the current community is keeping traditions alive while staying up to date with the latest dog sled racing. They run an incredible operation and had everything dialed from directions to their base (hint: don't use Google, use their directions) and keeping us warm pre and post mush with treats and hot cocoa. Just a top notch experience and a fantastic team of dogs and staff. Loved every minute and would go again in a heart beat. Few things to expect: prepare for extreme cold, make sure you have an all wheel drive or vehicle capable of driving on unpaved roads and be prepared to pick the staffs brain on dog sledding and how these dogs are amazing athletes. Have fun!

I planned this adventure for my son (18) and his buddy (19) while on college break. His buddy has never left Oklahoma and wanted the ALASKA experience. They got hands on with the dogs, which was amazing for me to watch them learn to harness their team. I also loved that they had winter gear for the boys to use. I would definitely recommend and plan to do my own tours there.

We had a fantastic time at Last Frontier Mushing Co-op. The staff was visibly excited to serve us. They did everything to make us comfortable. They introduced us to their dogs and we fell in love with them instantly. It was the highlight of my Alaska trip and would absolutely recommend them to anyone who will be visiting this area of this incredible state.

This tour was so much fun! Chase met us right after we arrived and told us about himself, and a bit about his dogs. Then we got to meet each of his beautiful dogs! Chase clearly loves his dogs and racing, and it was exciting to hear all about the team and how he races with them. We got to pet and help harness the dogs, getting them ready to pull the tractor, which is their summer exercise. After our ride, we got to meet some puppies! Thanks for a great afternoon!
