Overview

Gold Rush Dog Tours highlights summer cart-mushing in the picturesque Sheep Creek in Juneau, Alaska. Your approach to dog-camp will bring you by the relics of Juneau's famed mining history, transporting you through the rain forest from sea level to our mountain valley home. While in camp, you will meet the Handlers and Mushers of Sheep Creek, as well as their teammates, the famed dogs of Alaska's official state sport. Following proper introductions, dog sled history, and a little mushing 101, you will take to our specially designed trainer carts for a 20 minute ride. Be sure to watch for porcupine, eagles, and even the potential black bear along the way. And then, there's cookies. Upon returning, it's time to grab a cookie and hot cup of cocoa prior to departing ways for your next adventure. Gold Rush Sled Dogs is ideal for groups and mushers of all ages. We look forward to seeing you this summer, happy tails!

On a cruise in Alaska we decided on a combo trip of "gold panning and sled dog demo", and it was well worth it. The gold panning was so-so, but the highlight was a presentation by Matt Hayashida about completing the IDIDEROD, which he has...More

This is a tour that we would like to do when we cruise on the Disney wonder in June.. Can't book with Disney until March 7.. Can you recommend any outside vendors just in case we cannot get an excursion through Disney. There have already been 2 groups before that were able to book so not sure we will get what we want.. We don't want to get left at the port
