After a short and scenic helicopter flight to a nearby ice field, you’ll receive a personal introduction to the sport of dogsledding. Your guide will explain the origins of this special breed of dogs, mushing history, and the Iditarod, known as “The Last Great Race on Earth”—then show you how to harness the dogs and take you onto the trail.
