Learn what it takes to be a musher in the great Iditarod dog sled race with a trip to a dog sled camp.
Your adventure begins as you embark on a motorcoach ride into the remote and scenic Sheep Creek Valley. You're headed to the home of some of the state's foremost athletes -- the huskies that run in the Iditarod.
Upon arrival, you will be greeted by an experienced Iditarod musher and his dog team. You'll tour the camp, visit the replica Iditarod race checkpoint, and go through the steps the mushers perform, as if you're traveling the route with them.
Climb aboard a comfortable wheeled sled (no snow) and relax as a husky team whisks you along the 1.5-mile trail through the beautiful landscape.
Returning to camp, visit with the dogs, pet the puppies, and learn what it's like to live amid 120 happy huskies.
Dress warmly in layers with a wind- and waterproof outer layer; bring gloves, a scarf and a warm hat. Sled ride covers 1.5 miles. To participate, children must be able to understand the rules of interaction with the dogs, and a parent or guardian must supervise any interaction.
