Experience an authentic Alaskan lifestyle & meet sled dogs
Visit the home and husky kennel of four-time Iditarod champion Jeff King and experience an authentic Alaskan lifestyle! At the family-owned and operated Goose Lake Kennel, huskies are bred and raised to be some of the greatest sled-dogs in the state. Meet and cuddle the pups, see what it takes for the pups to make the team, and watch them in action as you hear stories of King’s time on the racing route. The Husky Homestead experience is a must-do when visiting Denali National Park!
The Husky Homestead tour is widely heralded as an authentic look into rural Alaskan lifestyle based on over 40 years of Alaskan adventures: from freight hauling on Denali to crossing the finish line in Nome with a champion Iditarod team. See our husky puppies and share an intimate view of the Alaskan Husky as they explode from the yard on a training run and witness their beauty in motion as they run on our 50′ treadmill. Get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating a championship team and carving a life in Alaska’s Interior. Hear compelling stories from the trail and see actual racing sleds, arctic survival gear and equipment used to traverse 1100 miles of Alaska’s most rugged terrain.
