Winter Tours: These tours are available when the snow flies (approx. Oct 15) until the first week of April and are designed for those who want to experience the thrill of dog-powered transportation and adventure with the comfort and safety of an experienced musher on board.

Available for any skill level.

This action-packed adventure takes you uphill, downhill, thru the spruce forest and finds excitement around every corner. You’ll be amazed at the power and eagerness of this wonderful hard-working pack of Alaskan huskies – they love to pull!

All of our day tours are based at our established Paws kennel site – located on an original 300 acre Fairbanks homestead and connected to an extensive trail system in the Chena River Valley (home to many mushing enthusiasts). Our site faces south looking at the Alaska Range.

You have the unique opportunity to visit (“hands-on”) with all of our 56 sled dogs in their home kennel and hear our sled dog tales of many years experience adventuring with our canine athletes. All of our mushers are not only long-time guides, but also have personal stories of Alaskan expeditions and/or racing experiences to share.

Dog lovers plan on spending more than your 30 min or 1 hour guided time getting extra dog love. We don’t kick you out after your tour.

Hands On: Greet the other canine athletes in the kennel. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting ‘doggy’ if you plan to interact with the sled dogs.

Educational/Informative: Learn all about raising Alaskan Huskies, a bit of the history of dog mushing, and what it takes to race a team of these fine athletes. Each of our guides is a professional musher who has dedicated many of their years to this sport. Ask them about their relationship to their dogs, their races, their adventures on the trail. Each friendly face offers a wealth of knowledge and personal experience.
