Adventurists in New Hampshire can get a feel for running the Iditarod thanks to a local company. They offer a variety of dog-sledding trips, ranging from a quick, 20-minute ride to an overnight voyage through the White Mountains. The kennel comprises more than 100 sled dogs, including Alaskan Huskies, Siberians and Malamutes.
The company says its tours let participants interact with the dogs and learn aspects of a culture that many people never get to experience. Muddy Paws also offers dog-sledding clinics for those wanting to learn to be mushers. The four-hour class, which costs $525 per couple (the class requires a minimum of two participants), teaches students all aspects of modern dog sledding. - See more at:
