Welcome to our home.

Where you will meet the sled dogs up close and learn about our off-grid year-round Alaskan homestead.

When visiting the homestead you will learn about our off-grid dry cabin (no utility connections or running water) and will see first hand what it takes to run all the systems needed to live in Alaska in summer and winter. We collect our own water, provide for our own electricity and heat, and grow, gather, bake, and ferment most of our food and try to live a simple sustainable life as much as possible.

You will learn about sled dogs and mushing in general and meet each dog individual. Each dog has a different characters and requires specific care and training to excel in their work and life. There will be plenty of opportunity to cuddle with the dogs and take pictures.
