Meet some hard-working, happy Huskies!

This tour follows the exact same route as the Classic, with one difference, Huskies!
North of Carcross, Yukon Territory, is Caribou Crossings Trading Post, where visitors have the unique opportunity to see Alaskan Husky puppies, or if the guests wish, we can take cart rides (no snow in summer!), with professional mushers, keeping their dogs in shape for the famous Iditarod race.
These dogs are true athletes, and they have a LOT of energy! Rides are 15-20 minutes long, in specially-designed carts, behind teams of around 14-16 happy dogs, making money for dog food (they eat up to 15, 000 calories per day when racing!) and staying in shape over the summer season.

CCTP also has a world-class taxidermy museum, where you can view animals SAFELY!

We always try to get to Caribou Crossings ahead of most other tours, for a better experience, plus, the dogs have more energy first thing in the morning!
Often, we pick up lunch in Carcross, and find a beautiful picnic spot for the way back.
I know some very nice spots.
