Do you love the idea of an overnight adventure but are slightly intimidated by our harsh Alaska winters? Get a Taste of the Wild on our 3-day micro-expedition.
Learn to mush from accomplished Yukon Quest and Iditarod mushers and meet the canine athletes that compete in the 1000-mile races. Once you're comfortable on the runners, you'll have the opportunity to drive your own team of our elite racing huskies and mush right out our back door. We explore the authentic Yukon Quest trail that runs through the heart of Two Rivers and overnight in quintessential Alaskan cabins and arctic ovens.
Keep your eyes peeled for moose, wolves, fox and arctic hares as you mush down the trail. At night, listen to stories from the Yukon Quest and Iditarod trails and maybe get a glimpse of the dancing Aurora Borealis!

Alaska is at the mercy of Mother Nature & she doesn't always cooperate. Tours (specifically expeditions) can be postponed or cancelled due to inclement weather and unsafe conditions. We apologize if this happens to your highly anticipated mushing vacation, but we want to make sure you get properly reimbursed for your inconvenience and receive a refund to re-book your tour! Travel insurance will provide that reimbursement.
