Guest Testimonials
Paws for Adventure offers an excellent “hands on” introduction to dogsledding. I have driven dog teams in the lower 48 states, but Leslie and her crew of guides at Paws have a great teaching progression for driving dog teams. First riding, then driving with an instructor and finally taking your own team out through the Alaskan wilderness!

Had a great time at Paws for Adventure. Went on the 30 minute ride and it was beyond beautiful. They lend you gear, so you have a comfortable experience and there is a yurt where you can warm up, get some cocoa and cookies before/after your rid
