How will we identify your driveway when we are at your home and kennel?
Look for the “WAYFINDER KENNEL” sign on your right if you are coming from Anchorage. Follow the driveway straight ahead past the handler cabins and kennel to the main log home where we will be excited to greet you. 🙂
Will I need 4wheel drive car to reach you?
No, it is not a necessity as our driveway is right off the main road. You will be driving on winter road conditions however. If you are renting a car and would feel more comfortable a 4wheel drive or all-wheel drive is always a good choice.
Will we see Northern Lights?
If you join us for our overnight run, you certainly may. At the end of our afternoon run it will be turning dark as well, so there is a chance then too. They are an amazing sight, but part of their allure is that they surprise us when they come out. We always keep our fingers crossed that they will be out for you as we get to see them often.
Will I see wild animals on my mush?
Yes, you very well may. We live in an area with may animals around us. The bears will be hibernating, but we do have moose, wolves and foxes all around us. Our eyes are well trained to see them so if we spot them, you’ll be the first to know. Have camera ready.
Should I tip my guides?
Tipping is completely up to you and should only be given if you feel that the experience was exceptional. Our guides are well compensated, but a tip for a job exceptionally well done is always gratifying.
What is your cancelation policy?
For half and full day tours a full refund will be given up to 48 hours prior to your tour with us.
For multi day excursions a full refund is given up to 7 days prior to you joining us.
Weather and trail conditions can at times make it unsafe to join us. If we cancel due to weather or any issue on our end a full refund will be given.
What is the deposit to hold our date with you?
A deposit of 50% will secure your reservation for mushing fun with us.
How far away from Anchorage are you?
We are a scenic 74 miles north of Anchorage on well-established roads. You’ll drive along the Chugiak and Talkeetna mountain ranges as you leave the hustle and bustle of Anchorage. We joke that the real Alaska starts 74 miles north of Anchorage. 🙂
