1-Hour Winter Dog Mushing & Sledding in Alaska

1. 1-Hour Winter Dog Mushing & Sledding in Alaska

Your 1-hour dog mushing adventure begins right at your Fairbanks accommodation. You don't need to plan how to get here; get picked up and dropped off at your Fairbanks hotel. Today it is a fascinating sport and hobby. But it was once the only means of transportation through the snowy lands of old time Alaska. Break away and mush into the twilight of the Alaskan wilderness. Experience the thrill, enjoy the landscape and feel those dogs work as they whisk you at surprising speeds, pulling on the leash of the dog sled.

Fairbanks: Moonlight Dog Sled, Dinner, & Northern Lights

3. Fairbanks: Moonlight Dog Sled, Dinner, & Northern Lights

Experience the beauty and wild side of Alaska. Yanking on their lines and ready to run, your dog team will be anxious to carry you away from your Fairbanks accommodation to this spectacular viewing of the Northern Lights.  Most of the sled ride takes place in an open area so should the Aurora begin early you will have a thrilling view of the sky from the dogsled. The Aurora Borealis is one of the planet's most breathtaking phenomena. In Alaska, a land that stays dark for most of the winter, these spectacular lights bring the sky to life with other-worldly colors that shimmer and dance across the sky.  The yurt is only a short drive from Fairbanks but far from the obstructing glare of city lights. Be treated to a hearty midnight dinner in an off-the-grid yurt.  Stay warm with hot drinks and lively conversation in the comfort of your yurt while waiting for the Aurora. The large north-facing windows of your yurt offer the perfect Aurora viewing opportunity. However, should you decide to go outside for photographs or a full view of the sky, you will need to dress in warm layers.

This was by far the best thing we did while in Fairbanks. Joe was our driver and was on time as well as sociable and knowledgeable about the area. Our musher was Jared. He was friendly and told us about caring for the dogs and some about the dog sled teams from the area. We were allowed to pet and visit the dogs in the yard while they were being hooked up to the sleds. I was surprised the ride was smooth. The views were spectacular with the moonlight. Once back at the yurt we had a fantastic meal of salad, salmon, asparagus, rice, wine, and apple pie with ice cream for dessert. The yurt was warm and the staff were friendly and kind. After dinner we were fortunate enough to have the lights come out for about an hour. This was a magical experience I will remember for a lifetime.

Truly the most magical night I have ever experienced!!! The guides were so friendly & amazing, the sled ride was magical, the dogs were darling and oh so lovable, and the northern lights brought me to tears!!! Highly recommend!!! Best experience in Fairbanks on our trip! Words can not express the gratitude I am still feeling 3 days later.

So much fun! A must do while visiting Fairbanks. Friendly mushers, and friendly dogs. Can’t forget the beautiful scenery.

Highlight of our vacation. Jimmy, our musher was “THE BEST”. Also went ice fishing with Clarence and had a blast.

Luther is great! He is very passionate about dog sledding. I learned so much from him.
