Dog Sledding Winter Outdoor Activities

Thousands of years before horses hoofed it around North America, humans relied on canines to make life possible – especially up north. These huskies are not just fluffy, pretty faces. They’re born and bred to be epic.

Mush: A short lesson from the pros and then it’s time to take off. Stand on the back of the sled and drive a team of four to six highly trained dogs over fresh powder. Your rosy cheeks are imminent.

Cozy in: You don’t have to do all the work. Snuggle under a buffalo rug and let a guide drive you through snowy forests and across frozen lakes.
