Depart from the Knik River Valley and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the braided river bed below, as you look for wildlife and explore the sights that the Chugach mountain range has to offer. Land on the Knik Glacier and spend 30 minutes trekking on the ice.
After a scenic flight through the Knik River Valley and over the stunning Knik Glacier, land at 4,000 ft and mush your own dog sled team across snow-covered glacial terrain. Drive your own team of veteran Iditarod Alaskan huskies or sit back and let your musher guide the pack while you take in the rush of being on the trail.
Access the unexplored, high alpine locations by landing in otherwise inaccessible terrain. Join an experienced alpinist on the trek of a lifetime and discover the allure of the Chugach Mountain Range. Choose between climatic ridgeline traverses or gentle sloping tundra treks. Tailor your hike to meet your skill level.
Flightsee your way out to the Knik Glacier and put an axe in ice thousands of years old. Whether you are looking for an exciting new adventure or an experienced climber looking for a challenge, join an experienced ice guide on the frozen surface of Lake George at the toe of Colony Glacier and climb an already established route up a gigantic iceberg (winter) or explore the many ice formations on the Knik Glacier (summer). Choose from a half day experience (2 hours) or a full day climbing experience (4 hours). For more experienced climbers, all day excursions are also available.
Fly down the Knik river valley and past the towering Pioneer Peak with views of The
Sleeping Lady and Denali to Big Lake, Alaska, where you will be welcomed at The
Dogstead! Home of respected Iditarod musher Nic Petit and his kennel of lovable
pups. You ‘ll be greeted and shown to your overnight accommodations on the 160
acre property that offers views of the Talkeetna, Chugach and Alaska Mountain
Ranges. Enjoy a night’s stay in a comfortable and cozy yurt…with a woodstove for
added ambiance. Choose between an evening dog sled ride (offered only to yurt
guests) or a morning mushing experience. In the spring and summer get pulled on a
cart, specially designed by Nic for a unique riding adventure, and in the winter
enjoy a snowy ride on a traditional dog sled.
