wildthingz summer tours
Cantwell, Alaska MAY - SEPTEMBER
Wildthingz Dog Mushing is now offering summer cart tours May through September near Denali National Park, Alaska!
We operate our own business that gives tourists a personal view into the wonderful world of dog mushing. On our tour, you will come to Cantwell, higher up in the beautiful mountains from Denali Park Entrance, where temperatures are more suitable for sled dogs. Don't have a vehicle? We also do hotel pick-ups and drop-offs! Once you arrive at our camp, you will find our summer home that shows you our simplistic, rustic lifestyle, nestled amongst our 25 Alaskan huskies.
Upon arrival, you will watch the process of hooking up a dog team to a lightweight cart on wheels, where you will then be pulled by the immense strength of the dogs, while learning about our incredible athletes from 2 time Yukon Quest finisher, and '06 Rookie Of the Year, Richie Beattie.
After your cart ride, you will have the opportunity to meet and greet all of the dogs, all of which love a pat on the head! You will then have adequate puppy snuggles ( keep in mind this depends on the age of the puppies ), and finally you will be given a presentation that educates you about what racing and training sled dogs for long distance races entails. This is a small, personal tour, so all of your questions will have ample time to be answered!
We also have an incredible view of Denali, weather permitting. Rain ponchos will be offered in case of inclement weather.
