The Trip Of Your Life!
Just 35 miles north of Iditarod headquarters and the sled dog capital of the world, Talkeetna is at the heart of the home training ground for world champion mushers and their racing teams. At their rustic home of World Champion sprint musher, Kathleen Holden and Top 20 Iditarod musher Gerald Sousa, you will be introduced to one of these teams.
Tours begin at the little log office in downtown Talkeetna, with a short narrated bus trip, describing the history of Talkeetna and sled dog racing. You will visit an authentic Alaskan log cabin, meet the dogs, see a demonstration of sled harnessing and mushing preparation. Learn about the winter training program to get these dogs ready for the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, held annually in March. You may opt for the sled dog ride on local trails through some beautiful and peaceful scenery. You will also get a chance to hold and play with our future champions, the puppies.
Taking part in this tour you are strengthening the Sundog Kennel toward being a main contender for the Iditarod Race.
