Visit the home and kennel of Iditarod musher Mike Santos. You’ll have the opportunity to meet his dogs, hold puppies and virtually experience the Iditarod race. Your intimate visit will bring you into his home and includes a 90 minute narrated tour during which you’ll learn about sled dogs, the Iditarod race and life in rural Alaska. The tour emphasizes multimedia through which you can experience the feeling of being on the Iditarod trail.

To begin, you’ll hold a puppy and view their play area. Then you’ll watch a team of enthusiastic sled dogs take off for a summer training run. Then you’ll view a 90 minute multimedia presentation that features video footage from the race, photos and equipment used. Hear stories of successes and challenges encountered along the way, participate in a question and answer session and see the dogs one last time before heading back to your hotel.
