What we’ll do

Your day begins with an hour-long scenic drive south of Fairbanks (30 miles on the highway, 8 miles on a dirt road). We will get you dressed in warm parkas, mitts, snowpants, and overshoes and mush you along woodland trails and on the frozen Tanana river to our cozy handmade cabin (about 7-12 miles depending on conditions).

Where you'll be

This tour takes place at our wilderness homestead on a south-facing bluff overlooking the Tanana River. To get there, we need to drive about an hour south of Fairbanks and then mush in with a dog team. Guest accommodations are in a handmade log and sod cabin heated by a woodstove. There is an outhouse but no running water in the cabin. We will cook your meals and eat together in an additional cabin.
