Arctic Dog Adventure Co.

At Arctic Dog Adventure Co., we have a genuine interest in taking care of our clients, our community, and the distinctive landscapes of Northern Alaska. Our speciality is long distance travel by dog sled, providing low-impact access to pristine wilderness areas. We offer dog sled tours rooted in principles of sustainability, authenticity and “rustic luxury” — warm, comfortable accommodations in the most remote and wild places, and an emphasis on utilizing locally sourced ingredients and products. To us, ecotourism is about offering our clients a responsible, authentic Alaskan experience. Travel by dog team is an ideal way to realize this. Sled dogs have been part of the Northern landscape for millennia. Their thick fur, tough pads and indomitable desire to pull make them perfect companions in Northern travel and exploration.   Our dogs are the heart and soul of our operation. We pride ourselves on offering our huskies the highest standard of dog care possible. Guests who visit us will meet dogs that are happy and content. It brings us great joy to share our love and respect for our dogs, and the landscapes of Interior Alaska, with others.

Boreal Journeys

Our passion is making our guests feel comfortable and connected in the northern Alaskan forest that we call home. We are a small-scale, family-run business focused on providing authentic experiences for our guests. We offer single or multi-day adventures dog sledding, skiing, and snowshoeing. We take only private groups of 1-4 people and customize the experience to each group’s desires to create unforgettable adventures.

We strive to live as close as we can to the place we’re in. We hunt, fish and grow much of our food for us and our dog family. We feed our guests healthy, homemade and local food. We do our best to use technology that doesn’t insulate us from a direct experience with our environment. On a trip with us, you will travel on trails we have cut, stay in tents we have sewn or cabins we have built and use gear that is made from and indigenous to the area we’re traveling in. We live in the place we guide, and we want to make sure that it is still just as beautiful and bountiful when we’re in the ground and future generations are tromping around.
