“Awesome Snow Show”

Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race
Ranked #25 of 226 things to do in Anchorage
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Standing under the "start" banner with snow falling quite heavily, hearing the dogs yip, watching the mushers begin the ceremonial run of the Iditarod......what a show in Anchorage! We had met Aly Zirkle (and some of her dogs) at our hotel, The Clarion, and were thrilled to see her in the line up. That really made our trip extra special. You can read and watch this event on TV but there is no comparison to seeing it up close and feeling all the excitement in person.

went here as aprt of a tour and took sled dog rides with the iditarod founder family. The dog ride was amazing and so were the new puppies. The visitor center offer a nice movie about dog sledding. Nice place to visit.

It was wonderful and entertaining. Learned what it would be like to be in the race and how to take care of the dogs.

The sled dog ride is so much fun.
Very informative video to help understand why and how the dog can run for such long distance.

cute dogs, however $10 for a 30 second dog ride was not what i expected. you can pet the puppies, but some of them were terrified.
