With Alaska’s Salmon Berry Travel & Tours, you can experience the best adventures available in the Last Frontier. Alaskan-owned and -operated, Salmon Berry handpicks their tour guides for their knowledge and experience. Whether you opt to explore city streets or wildlife settings, you can count on their reliable, certified guides to show you Alaska from an insider’s point of view.

For a full-day Alaskan-style winter escape, Salmon Berry gives you the opportunity to mush your own dog sled. As you are transported from Anchorage to Talkeetna, the falling snow sets the scene before you begin your adventure. Once you arrive in Talkeetna, you will be paired with your dogs and your dog sled.

You will set off on the 10-kilometer trail with a rush of speed. Along the trail, there is a stopping point halfway for photo opportunities and for the pups to take a break. Beyond the beautiful scenery, you will be able to see a replica of an Iditarod checkpoint and learn about the “The Last Great Race on Earth.”

After you are done with the trail, there will be hot drinks and lunch provided for you, and transportation back to your hotel. For more information about Salmon Berry Travel & Tours, go to Plan your stay in Anchorage at
