Winter Dog Sledding Adventure

Parka? Check. Toque? Check. Sense of adventure? Check. If you love the outdoors and are looking for a fun winter getaway then you should definitely try dog sledding.

Your day starts when you are introduced to a pack of excited huskies that are more than happy to meet you. You’ll learn a bit about the world of mushing, how to harness the dogs and get the team ready to hit the trail.

All guests are taught how to mush themselves and are encouraged to take the reins. However, if you’d rather be bundled into the sled insulated cushions and blankets are provided to make the excursion as comfortable as possible. 

Opportunities for winter camping in the wilderness add to the adventure. Guests stay in cozy wood heated trapper’s style tents with the huskies right outside the door. Though it may be cold, poking your head out of the tent once it’s dark is a must, you never know when you’ll see the northern lights. If camping is really not your style, then forest chalets and luxury hotels also await.

Each dog sled operator offers their own unique excursions. To start planning your winter adventure just click on one of the operators names below:
