We are at the beginning of a new adventure season here in Alaska, travel has opened up and people are getting out. Breakup is happening all around and we are up about 15 hours of daylight.
With all that being said, Mr. and Mrs. have been out and about trying to find more fun things for you to know about a do while visiting us and staying here at @ouralaskandream. Here are a few of the fun things we have found as the dark time sipped away.
Williams Reindeer Farm @williamsreindeerfarm, was such a fun day, walking about the farm and meeting the Reindeer, feeding and posing with them, not to mention Rocky the moose. We highly recommend you take a few hours on one of your days here and visit. They reopen May 1st, they close in April for all the new babies to arrive, take a look at their website and learn all about them https://www.reindeerfarm.com/
What is Alaska Known for, besides the cold, and dark, Fishing, we are coming out of the dark time and fishing is on everyone’s mind. Did you know that the Matanuska Valley has great fishing? So many people head to the Kenai for fishing, but you pass by our little secret. There is amazing lake, river and drift fishing here in the valley just a short drive (Alaska style) from Our Alaska Dream. We had the honor of meeting Sonia and Dan from Drill Team 6 https://dt6fishingexcursions.com/, @dt6fishingexcursions and team up with them, with their help you can fish 365 days a year. Both Retired Veterans and such delightful people. I tell you when you stay with us, ask us to help you get hooked up and off for an adventure with them you won’t be sorry at all. Then back to the property and cook up your fish on the grill.
Glaciers, and sled dogs, how could the two things possibly go together? Take a flight with Alaska Helicopter tours alaskaheiloptertours.com @alaskaheiloptertoursand find out. We went out with them this month for an early morning sunrise ride, and landing on the Knik Glacier, and I can say it was one of the best adventures I have had here in Alaska. Now I mentioned sled dogs, do you know who won the Iditarod in 2021? If you are from Alaska you do Dallas Seavey, dallasseavey.com. Now the fun part, when you stay at Our Alaskan Dream, we can help you book a flight or even better a trip to see the mushing training camp for the wonderful dogs that help Dallas Seavey win the Iditarod 5 times. I really encourage you to take advantage of this adventure just minutes from the property
Those are a few of the wonderful adventures we have found out about and recommend to you, Keep in mind we can help you get these booked.
