TRAVEL AGENT/TOUR COMPANY COMMISSION

We offer a 20% commission rate for travel agents or tour companies who’d like to sell our tour. We offer two options for doing so:

  1. The travel agent or tour company makes the reservation and pays with the guests’ credit card. Then, we send a commission check AFTER the guest(s)’ visit—provided they do not cancel.
  2. The second option is that we charge the travel agent or tour company at the net rate – which is 20% off our regular cost of admission – and then send an invoice for bookings made during the corresponding billing cycle.

You’ll need to provide us with a completed IRS W9 PDF Form which you can download here »

What do your guests need to know before they visit?

  • Our tours are not governed by the weather and we will not cancel.
  • Layering clothes is a good idea! Bring a warmer layer or raincoat, and perhaps a hat as the first half of the presentation is outside with our dogs. We also recommend bug spray and closed toed footwear as a good idea.

TOUR DESCRIPTION

Enjoy a warm welcome and experience a true Alaskan lifestyle at Husky Homestead—home of Iditarod Champion, Jeff King. Husky Homestead is widely heralded as an authentic look into rural lifestyles based on over 40 years of Alaskan adventures: from freight hauling on Denali to crossing the finish line in Nome, Alaska with a champion Iditarod team. Cuddle puppies upon arrival and share an intimate view of the Alaskan Husky as the team explodes from the dog yard and witness their beauty in motion as they run on our treadmill before hitting the trail for a training run. Get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating a championship team and carving a life in Alaska’s Interior. Hear compelling stories from the trail and see actual racing sleds, arctic survival gear and equipment used to traverse 1100 miles of Alaska’s most rugged terrain.
Children ages 12 and under are welcomed with an attentive parent.
