Dog Sledding in Alaska

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Dog sledding was one of the most spectacular experienced I have ever had in my life.  When traveling to Alaska, this is one of the most must-do activity anyone have to experience.

You're speeding through Alaskan forest, sitting on a sled that's being pulled by some of Alaska's most powerful creatures.  It's s not only an Alaskan tradition, but also a state obsession, one that's celebrated every March with the running of the 1,150-mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race from Anchorage to Nome.

Taking a dogsledding excursion is a chance to see what the fuss is all about. You'll meet Iditarod racers and their dogs and hear what it's like to run this brutal race. And often, you'll experience the thrill of dogsledding first-hand.
