Peter was our guide, great presenter!!
He teached us to enjoy at 100% this experiencie
All the crew were very helpful and friendly - on the bus,giving out the clothing and serving coffee and stew in the hut. Our musher was great and told us about his team of dogs which was very interesting.
These guys really know their trade. With both the handling of the dog teams and their knowledge of the mountains. There appeared a very good awareness of the physical and mental limits of us novice handlers which was very much appreciated.
Our instructor was very relaxed and made sure everyone was able to keep up. Told some nice things about the area and our second guide ‘Coppen’ the husky was a very pleasant surprise
