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 out 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.

Don’t miss out on this unique experience to see how we Alaskans live.

Activity Details
Visit the Flower Homestead, a musher’s homestead tucked away just south of Talkeetna in the Boreal forest of Alaska.

Here we live a sustainable life together with the Flower Kennel Sled dogs. The kennel is unique in that the sled dogs are an integral part of our real authentic off-grid Alaskan life. The dogs help with hauling water from our spring, building material and firewood we harvest from our homestead to keep warm and cozy during the Alaska winters.

We grow, harvest and gather most of our own food and live a self-reliant lifestyle as much as possible.

We are committed to our dogs and the Flower Kennel is their forever home. Our tours are an exclusive opportunity to see how and why we live in the far North. We are a small locally owned operation and our tours are casual and personal.

Welcome to our home.
