Have clients who love dog mushing so much that they’ve dreamed about competing in Alaska’s Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race? While that might remain a fantasy for most, several Alaskan tour operators offer overnight dog mushing excursions in the state throughout the winter and spring months.
One such operator is Last Frontier Mushing Co-op. Founded by the owners of several dog kennels, the company runs various multiday expedition trips that even get first-time mushers driving their own sleds in snowy surroundings. In addition to one-on-one time with Alaskan huskies and training from former Iditarod and Yukon Quest mushers, participants might be able to spot caribou, moose, lynx and — on the clearest nights — the aurora borealis.
Even the hardiest clients will appreciate that Last Frontier provides all meals; cold-weather gear such as sleeping bags and parkas; and roundtrip transportation from Fairbanks. The weather can dip to as low as 40 below, but worry not — these adventures use Arctic Oven tent systems that are guaranteed to stay dry and warm.
