Open year-round! Interactive and exciting dog sledding tours with real long distance mushers. Owned by Iditarod veteran, Jeff Deeter. Meet our friendly, genuine racing sled dogs. Beautiful scenery and warmer winter temperatures in the high hills above Fairbanks. Winter tours use a "tag sled" so you can try driving the dog sled! Summer tours use a 5-passenger buggy.
