Tours Available

Group Dog Sled Tours

There are 6 adult seats per dogsled tour.  A child may be added to a full tour of 6 adult drivers as the child will only be allowed to ride in the sled basket and will not impact the drive time of any of the adults on the tour.  Two people ride on the dogsled at a time, one driving the dog sled, one riding in the basket, while the other guests ride on a sleigh that is pulled by the guide on a snowmobile out in front of the dog team. Periodically, we stop and switch out drivers and riders so that all of the adults get an opportunity to drive the dog sled and ride in the basket. We will book out any remaining seats of the tour unless you choose to make your tour private.
