Though winter is considered probably the best time for dog sledding, there are also summer tours available. They are not so extreme, and if you are not a person for risky activities, summer sledging will be good for you. Many people wonder how it is possible to do this when there is no snow outside. Don’t worry: there are special sleds with wheels for the warm periods of the year. There are some companies offering ATVs instead of traditional sleds.

The experience is just as magical, just imagine a race through the wild Alaskan forest with that unforgettable pine scent! Great, isn’t it? Aside from racing, you will also have enough time to play with adorable huskies and their puppies; usually,​ the dogs are very friendly and look forward to meeting people. What is even more important, that it's not just fun to tourists; summer sledding keeps the dogs in good shape for the upcoming winter sledding season.
