Skagway sled dog tours are a great way to experience the excitement of Alaska’s state sport, and the Skagway Sled Dog and Musher Camp excursion is one of the best ones offered! Visit an authentic dogsledding summer training camp, take an exhilarating sled ride pulled by a team of  16 powerful Alaskan huskies, learn about the sport of dog-sledding from experienced mushers who have competed in punishing world-renowned 1000-mile races like the Iditarod and Yukon Quest, and meet a crew of adorable husky puppies! The family-friendly Skagway Sled Dog and Musher Camp experience starts with convenient pick-up from the cruise docks and runs for about three hours and 15 minutes. You’ll return to your cruise ship after a tour filled with Alaskan adventure, history, and an awe-inspiring wilderness experience that ranks as one of the best-reviewed of the Skagway sled dog tours.

A favorite among Alaska excursions Skagway, the Skagway Sled Dog and Musher Camp expedition begins with a fascinating guided tour of historic downtown Skagway, followed by a scenic drive along 11 miles of beautiful coastline to the Musher’s Camp in Dyea, once a thriving Gold Rush town. Then hop aboard a monster Unimog all-terrain vehicle for an exhilarating ride up a mountain road lined with fast-flowing glacial streams and waterfalls. At the mountaintop, you’ll be greeted by your musher and a team of excited huskies ready and waiting to race! Board the custom-designed wheeled summer sled as these powerful dogs take you on a breathtaking, mile-long, zig-zagging ride along a trail through the Tongass National Forest. After bidding farewell to your hard-working team with pets and praise, climb back into the Unimog for another adventurous ride, this time to a stunning overlook above the Dyea tidal flats, where you may spot eagles, bears, seals and wildflowers against a backdrop of snow-capped peaks. Finally, it’s back to the Musher’s Camp for a kennel talk, where you’ll learn all about dogsledding before meeting the camp’s coterie of future star athletes: the husky puppies. Playing with these bouncy bundles of joy is an important part of the socialization process that is essential to their future racing success, so don’t hold back in the cuddles department! With adorable pups thrown into Skagway sled dog tours for good measure, who could possibly resist this favorite among Alaska excursions Skagway!

    Not To Be ForgottenOur guide was amazing, our musher was very informative, and the dogs were amazing. 15 dogs pulling 2000 pounds and loving every single minute. The puppies were the stars of the day. The two week old just recently fed grunting noises and cuddling was the highlight of my wife's trip. the views on the way there and back were great. The bald eagles everywhere along the way were a surprise.

    Highlight of our Alaskan ExperienceWhat is better than getting to watch and interact with athletes during their off-season training? When said athletes are SLED DOGS and their coaches are the dedicated and compassionate team that guides and nurtures them! I've traveled all over the world, and this was a highlight of my global experiences. The dogs are energetic fluff balls of sunshine, talent, and enthusiasm. The staff is organized, professional, sincere and utterly dedicated to the dogs. And to hold puppies at the end of the run? Life gets no better. Thank you, from me (mom), my 12-year-old daughter, and my 80-year-old parents.

    So fun for all ages!I traveled with myself, husband and 2 boys ages 12 and 14. All 4 of us were educated, entertained and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My boys especially loved holding the puppies, some were 13 days old. We were all fascinated by Ryan Reddington's presentation on the Iditarod and loved learning more about the world of being a musher. Our driver Austin was an extremely fun, knowledgeable guide as he drove us 45 minutes from the ship to the musher camp through absolutely gorgeous scenery. His drive and commentary allowed us to feel like we "knew" Skagway. We had originally booked the White Pass Train on this day but canceled it for the Musher Camp tour and couldn't be happier with that decision. My kids say it was their favorite day in Alaska.

    How long is this excursion, and is transportation to and from your camp included?

    Answer: All of our Skagway excursions include transportation to and from your cruise ship dock. The entire excursion (dock to dock) is about 3.5 hours

    Do I get to drive the sled?

    Answer: No one knows the dogs like their mushers, for this reason, passengers are not allowed to drive the sled. Driving the sled, as well as keeping the dogs in line, takes skills and knowledge that is only acquired through experience.

    How long is the sled ride? Is it bumpy?

    Answer: The sled ride is about a mile long. Sometimes, the ride can be a little bumpy, but our guides are usually able to avoid the bumps well enough. The speed, as well as the exact timing, of the ride is dependent upon both the dogs’ performance as well as the weather on the day of your visit. So, there is truly no way for us to say exactly how fast the sled will go on any given run.

    How many people will fit on the sled?

    Answer: Six guests, plus the musher, go together on the sled. We normally run more than one sled at a time, so we can easily accommodate larger groups.

    Is the sled ride on snow?

    Answer: In both Skagway and Juneau, our excursion takes place on the ground in the woods, and we use a customized summertime wheeled sled. Our summertime sleds are a great way to experience mushing without the cold temperatures and heavy snow of wintertime Alaska.
