Alaskan Sled Dog Demonstration and 40 Below Experience in Skagway, Alaska


Housed within the family friendly Klondike Goldfields, along the banks of the picturesque Skagway River, lies the uniquely Alaskan 40 Below Experience and Alaska Sled Dog Demonstration.  Visitors of all ages and abilities are welcomed throughout the Klondike Goldfields and are encouraged to join the Gold Rush Staff for an hour of laughter, dogs and if you're up for it, as long as you can handle the elements at 40 below.

Designed and developed by the Gold Rush Team, championed by 7-time Iditarod Finisher Matt Hayashida, the 40 Below Experience and Alaska Sled Dog Demonstration introduces you to the rigors of modern day racing and the demands of the trail through dryland training techniques and demonstrations along with the psychological toll at 40 below.

Meet the dogs, learn the mentality and see if you can handle the true test in our simulated environment controlled to 40 degrees below zero Fahrenheit.

To make a reservation, please contact the Klondike Goldfields.

Celebrating our tremendous staff, we encourage them in 2015 as they defend back-to-back Skagway Princess Tour Guide of the Year honors.  Thank you for considering us and choosing to visit Alaska.

  • We loved a personal view of mushing. We visited the dogs and held the puppies. We felt the love the guides Matt and Mattie had for racing and caring for their dogs. This tour was up close and personal!
  • Loved the dog tour. Matt was very informative. The puppies a joy. Had a ball. Will recommend it!
