Our passion is making people feel comfortable and connected in the northern forest that we call home.  We use traditional means of travel, Alaskan Husky sled dogs,  hand-crafted gear, and local materials to create trips that are personal, exciting and life-broadening.  

 

Why Choose Boreal Journeys for a dog mushing experience? 

  • Personal- We only take one party at a time (generally of 2 people), ensuring that we have lots of time for YOU.

  • Less Driving- We are located 20 minutes from most Fairbanks locations and offer transportation, so you can spend more time in a sled and less in a car.

  • No Rush- We leave plenty of space in between our tours so the dogs can rest and you can enjoy a hot drink in our cabin, with plenty of time to talk.

  • Traditional Dogs-We run 60-100lb Alaskan Huskies (click here to meet them!) the kind of dogs that have been used for over a hundred years in Alaska.  We feed them a 90% salmon diet and catch the fish ourselves each fall.

  • Cabin Lifestyle and Gear- We have guests get ready in our off the grid cabin where we chop ice for water, heat with wood, and build our sleds and clothing by hand.  We are happy to share this lifestyle with you.

Expeditions

 Gliding through a winter wonderland to the thud of paws on snow and scrape of sled runners on ice is an unforgettable experience.  Our expedition trips are designed to take you far beyond the typical dogsled tour and into the world of a traveling musher.  Traveling by dogsled, snowshoe and ski is a time-tested tradition in Alaska and we'd love to share with you the joys of time on the trail with our team of Alaska Huskies.

 

Homestead Overnights

Experience a real Alaskan homestead.  We offer customized stays at our cabin on a bluff overlooking the Tanana River.  Spend your days mushing a dog team along the river, snowshoeing along a sunny bluff, ice fishing, carving a wooden spoon, and enjoying the sunset by an open fire and waiting for the northern lights.
