Dog Sledding in Saskatchewan is More Accessible Than You Think
When people think about winter activities in Saskatchewan, many come to mind right away, such as snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice skating, and curling. These types of activities are quite often perceived as accessible and within reach of most visitors, however, there still seems to be a misconception that dog sledding does not fall into this same category.
But…it does! Dog sledding in Saskatchewan is becoming a very common form of outdoor entertainment and in many cases, is in close proximity to cities and towns. Some locations that offer dog sledding opportunities include operators near Anglin Lake (about an hour north of Prince Albert just outside Prince Albert National Park), Nipawin, Saskatoon and Air Ronge.
Many operators offer mushing adventures by the hour, day, overnight or even by the week. Prices are also reasonable, with daily rates ranging from $50-$80 per hour, $180-$250 per day, and $375-$450 for overnight trips. Of course, prices do vary from operator to operator, so please contact them directly for exact prices.
On her most recent Road Trip, Tourism Saskatchewan’s travel correspondent Becky took a stab at dog sledding with Sundogs Sled Excursions. Check out the video below to see how it went.
