Welcome to Wayfinder Kennel
Alaska Dog Sledding Tours and Mushing Excursions
Experience the beauty of Alaska on a dog sledding tour led by an Iditarod dog musher. Each of our all-inclusive tours starts and ends at our log home in Willow, Alaska, where you’ll catch stunning views of the Denali mountains and be treated to fresh, homemade cookies. During your adventure, you’ll learn the basics of mushing, get plenty of one-on-one time with our friendly team of Iditarod racing Alaskan huskies, and hopefully get to see the Northern Lights.
