The Alaskan Iditarod of Summer!

Summer Sled Dog Adventure and Scenic Mountain Tour

An 8 mile journey in our open air Pinzgauers take you on the historical Iditarod trail where the mountains open up to one of the most scenic landscapes in all of Alaska.

Here you will meet 7 time Iditarod musher Nicolas Petit and his amazing sled dogs, observe dog handling techniques, and interact with the dogs that ran the Iditsrod.

Feel the raw power of these sled dogs as you ride through trails high up in the mountains. The sled dogs respond to Nicks commands as a whole, moving and navigating as if they were of one mind. It’s a sight to see, and an experience you will never forget!

After your cart ride, you will visit our beautiful puppy pavilion. This is your chance to cuddle and play with future Iditarod champions in their cutest and cuddliest phase. If you thought the sled dogs were cute, the puppies will surely melt your heart. You can snuggle with your favorite puppy for a great picture.

Check out Iditarod memorabilia including Nick's racing sled, trophies, and all the gear and warm clothing that he needs to survive in temperatures of 40-60 below while racing over a thousand miles in unforgiving conditions. There is a reason it’s called “The Last Great Race”!

When it’s time to say good bye to the puppies, we will take you back to Girdwood with your big smiles and a lot of photos.

Our All-Star Dogs!
