As such, we do not take advance reservations. Tours are booked in-person only.

Dog Cart Rides

The chena sled dog kennel operates year round, offering guests a true Alaskan Adventure during any season.

Throughout the sunny, snow-less summer months, guests can experience the traditional winter Alaskan sport of dog mushing. Guests get to witness a team of working Alaskan Huskies hooked up to a dog cart in the same fashion as is done in the winter time; however, in place of the snow sled, a custom built wheeled cart is used! Enjoy the 1 and 1/2 mile trail ride!

Price: $60 per adult 12+ / $30 Youth (11 years and under)

Kennel Tour
