Today we arrived in Juneau and had our first excursion! We had pre-booked with Princess to go dogsledding and were super excited for this tour. Plus, who doesn’t love puppies! The sled dog camp was only about a 20min scenic ride from the cruise port. Once we got there, we got to learn a bit about dogsledding before going on a ride. We learned about the mandatory equipment and the processes of dog sledding.

Did you know that the average cost to participate in the famous 1,150 mile Iditarod race is $40,000 and the maximum number of dogs per team is 14?

After the kennel talk, we got to go on a 1.5mile ride around the camp. We were pulled by a team of 15 dogs ranging from experienced to just learning. It was a fast and exhilarating ride with beautiful scenery.

Then it was time for a hot beverage and puppy snuggles! The pups were 3 weeks old and absolutely adorable!

The camp has a beautiful suspension bridge which offered beautiful views of the camp and Tongass Rainforest!

All in all the tour was about 2.5 hours and I would highly recommend considering this tour while in Juneau!

Stay tuned for more from our amazing Alaska adventure.
