Dog Mushing Expeditions

Dog Mushing Expeditions
& Custom Adventures

Exploring the Alaska wilderness from the runners of a dogsled is amazing and what Team Squid lives for.  We originally got into sled dogs for this purpose, to be able to travel across the great state when it is frozen and possible to go almost anywhere. Since 2006, we have seen some amazing places and wildlife. We have experienced some awesome and powerful feelings while traveling with our dogs. Racing sled dogs is fantastic, but we sometimes forget to stop smell the roses. Expeditions allow us to experience all that travelling in winter has to offer and allows us to have a laid back way to bond with our dogs while still facing some enormous challenges at times. We’d like to share this experience with you! Join us for the mushing adventure of a lifetime. We offer a variety of custom dogsled expeditions that can meet the needs of your private group. Contact us to design a custom dogsled expedition near Denali for your group.

Ultimate Iditarod
Mushing Experience

We offer a dog mushing trip in conjunction with the Iditarod start. Experience the action of the Iditarod start, help Team Squid to the starting line and then fly to Rainy Pass Lodge to see the teams. You’ll then go on a multi – day mushing experience with Iditarod veteran guides to the Susitna Adventure Lodge. Trip ends before the teams finish in Nome, in case you want to go to the finish line.

Women’s Mushing

We offer mushing retreats specifically for women each spring.  Join veteran Iditarod and Yukon Quest mushers Paige Drobny and Ryne Olson on a 7-day extensive learning dog sled and camping trip just for gals! This trip will take mushers from Cantwell to Susitna Advenutre Lodge on the famed Denali Highway. Become a wild woman and experience a trip of a lifetime

Lodge Based
Mushing Adventure

Alaskan Dog Sled Tours

Fly by ski plane or take our tracked snowcoach to the luxurious Susitna Adventure Lodge for 5 nights and 4 days in the remote Clearwater Mountains. Mush your own team to the foot of glaciers and 12,000 ft peaks during the day and enjoy the Aurora Borealis from the lodge windows at night.

Custom Overnight
Mushing Adventure

Come mushing with us for two days and one night. We’ll camp on the trail with our comfortable heated tents. Travel through the mountains on a dog sled by day. Sip a hot drink and you watch for the Aurora at night. Contact us to set up a custom dog mushing experience tailored to your group’s needs.

Custom Dog Mushing Adventures

We specialize in creating custom sled dog mushing trips specially tailored to your group’s needs and wishes. We can spend the entire trip traveling and camping along the trail in remote back country.  If you prefer, we can base a trip from the Susitna Adventure Lodge where you are surrounded by the quiet beauty of the Alaska Range, but can still enjoy luxurious accomodations and fine dining.  Contact us to learn about options and pricing.
