Dog Sledding is Alaska’s official state sport, and Salmon Berry Tours offers our most popular Arctic activity as a unique mushing school experience with Dallas Seavey Racing!

Your full day adventure begins with stress free transportation provided from Anchorage to Talkeetna, gateway to the Interior! Sit back and relax as Salmon Berry Tours navigates the snowy winter roads, allowing you to take in the pristine scenery while your local Alaskan driver-guide narrates the drive with history, fun facts, personal stories from life in the subarctic! Weather permitting, our drive will offer views of Mt. Denali (formerly known as Mt. McKinley), the tallest mountain in North America, towering in the distance!

Once in Talkeetna, we embark on your training run at the homestead of Dallas Seavey, a four-time Iditarod first place Champion, top three finisher in Norway’s 2018 Finnmarksløpet, youngest Yukon Quest first place Champion, and former star of National Geographic Channel’s Ultimate Survival Alaska! Here, you will go from being a dog sled enthusiast to an experienced musher! Meet the professional Iditarod mushers/handlers of Dallas Seavey Racing and genuine Iditarod champion Alaskan Huskies! Bond with your dog team while you receive a thorough explanation of the musher lifestyle, lingo, and an orientation of how to handle the huskies. With your newfound knowledge and confidence you’ll receive your dog sled equipment and help harnessing your team into the sled.

Each two guests will share a dog sled and a small dog team of 4-7 Alaskan Huskies for the 5 mile self drive mini expedition! Take off into the groomed dog sled trails of Talkeetna’s snowy boreal forest! For 2.5 miles, you will guide your four-legged team through snow capped birch trees with complete winter silence except for the occasional sound of the dogs barking with excitement, paws pounding, and the sled’s runners gliding across the snow, as you guide your dog team! Once you reach an opening in the forest, take a break for photo opportunities with your dog team as they bask in the sun and to alternate from standing to riding on the passenger bench! The next 2.5 miles of mushing will duplicate the Iditarod trail where you will visit replicas of official Iditarod checkpoints and other highlights of “The Last Great Race on Earth” until you cross the burled arch Finish Line!
During the total 5 miles, there will be a lead musher guiding and tail musher following for quality, safety, and comfort during your mush - both guiding the dogs and riding in the sled!

Now that you are no longer a rookie musher, you will have time to meet Iditarod in training puppies! Alaskan Huskies are powerful athletes that are known for their affectionate, loyal, playful personalities -- and the puppies are no different! This adventure includes lunch, hot beverages, complimentary snacks and water.

Your guide will transport you into Talkeetna after the tour to check into our lodgings. You will have free time this evening to rest or look around town before dinner.
