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.
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.
Take part in the traditional sport of dog sledding through the Canadian Rockies. Suitable for anyone over 2 years, Unleash the Musher allows you to be as interactive as you like with the opportunity to help your guide harness the dogs, hook up the team and drive the sled.
