Tiki-Torch Tour

Darkness Dash

This package starts after the sun has gone down.  You'll receive a dog sledding tutorial and your team of 6 dogs is ready to go when you get here.  The trails are lit by the soft glow of our solar powered tiki torches! (Note: we no longer have burning tiki-torches do to environmental concerns, they are now solar powered lamps).

 

The only sounds are that of the sled runners gliding over the trails and the rhythmic breathing of the dogs as they fall into a collective, even gait.  The cool, crisp evening air creates a fantastic environment for the dogs to run in; and the (sometimes visible) moonlight and headlamps are an excellent and beautiful touch for the mushers to enjoy dog sledding in a quiet and peaceful way.

 

This package is available Friday and Saturday evenings only.  Your experience is 1 hour long.  The first 15 minutes is your dog sledding tutorial, and then 35 minutes of dog sledding.  The remaining 10 minutes is a photo and discussion opportunity when we return to the yard.  Start time is 7 pm.

 

Reservations are required and payment must be made in full at the time of reservations.  Refer to our FAQs for our payment and refund policy.

Mush for Fun

Mush For FunDesigned to give you a taste of dog sledding, this package is 2 hours long.  Actual dog sledding time is dependent upon the time it takes your group to run through the tutorial, harness dogs, hook up teams, and put dogs away afterward.

 

When you arrive your group will be given a sledding tutorial that will teach you how to harness your dogs, put together your team, and drive your sled.  Then you will be responsible for harnessing your teams and hooking them up.  Participants will pair up and ride double to a sled; one driver, one rider, with ample opportunities for trading places.

 

We will stop once for photo opportunities, and then bring the teams home.  You will be responsible for putting your team away and ensuring that they get their snacks and soup-water.

 

This package is available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  We can accommodate up to 6 participants.  Start times are 9am, 12 noon, and 3 pm.

 

Reservations are required and payment must be made in full at the time of reservations.  Refer to our FAQs for our payment and refund policy.
