3 Hour Tour
More Trail Time For Adventurous Guests!
FINISHED FOR THE SEASON
About: This tour, while still suitable for beginners, is geared towards guests who want additional ride and trail time. As the name suggest, this experience last approximately 3 hours from start to finish and is open to those ages 5+. For the first 30 minutes or so, guests are able to meet and greet the sled dogs, see where they live, pat them and can even help their musher(s) prepare the doggies for the trail. Once the doggies and sled are prepared, guests will then embark on a 12 mile/2 hour ride (ride time varies depending on guest weights, trail conditions and the doggies pulling the sled). The mushers always try to leave 10-15 minutes at the end for guests to say thank you to the sled dogs by giving out belly rubs for a job well done.
Availability: This tour departs on select Tuesdays – Sundays in February (please note this tour is not available during the holidays or school vacation weeks)
