There is majesty, history and culture in the image of a team of huskies pulling a sled through the snow, particularly for many indigenous people in Canada, for whom dog sledding was once a key transportation mode.

But also: Adorable! With their thick coats and ice blue eyes, huskies may have been bred to run through the snow, but they may as well have been bred to steal hearts. Alberta has many sled dog operators who offer tourists a chance to experience the unique sensation of being pulled by a team of dogs, but also a chance to get up close and personal with some of the cutest dogs ever.
