Into the Wild: Sushana River mushing adventure

Join us for the trip of a lifetime and mush your own team to our remote mushing camp on the banks of the Sushana River, just off the historic Stampede Trail. This remote camp is located on the northern wilderness boundary of Denali National Park and is surrounded by some of the wildest, untouched country in Interior Alaska. From here we will do a day trip to the famous bus that Chris McCandless used and was featured in the book and film Into the Wild.
