About Alaska Sled Dogs & Musher's Camp
Experience the Alaska State Sport! Each summer, mushers bring their sled dogs to our Musher’s Camp for summer training, and you can participate in one of their training runs when 16 Alaskan Huskies pull your custom-designed, wheeled summer sled down a mile-long forested trail. You’ll also ride an all-wheel drive Unimog up our mountain, cuddle up with our adorable husky puppies, learn about this adventurous sport in our interactive “Kennel Talk,” and so much more!

We loved Skagway! We went in the afternoon, presentation is the same no matter what time you go. I wish we had went in the morning though and had more time to wander the town. Enjoy!

Anytime an excursion is canceled, you will receive a refund. This was a combined excursion to the musher camp and then up to the pass for a train ride back to the town. The bus did pick us up and drop us back at the port
