Sled Dog Demonstration, Denali National Park, Alaska
Denali National Park, Alaska| Map |
Visitors to Denali National Park can see free Sled Dog Demonstrations given by the Park Service. Performed three times a day during peak season, these 30-minute programs also allow visitors to tour the park’s kennels and visit with the Alaskan huskies up close. There’s no parking at the kennels so plan on using one of the park’s free shuttles. These depart from the visitor center about every 40 minutes and arrive in time for the demonstrations. For those who want to stretch their legs, it’s a mile-and-a-half walk from the visitor center. Children will enjoy petting the dogs and standing on the sleds for pictures. For most visitors to Denali, the Sled Dog Demonstration is a must-see.
