Into the Wild Adventures, dog sledding tours and winter adventures in the Yukon Territory, Canada - Dogsledding Tours

Dog Sledding Tours

Full Day Dog Sled Tour

Our signature dog sledding tour will take you through 48 kms of beautiful trails. You will cross frozen lakes, climb a mountain, test your agility on narrow, challenging bush trails and encounter history while travelling on old mining roads.

During your lunch break you will enjoy the breathtaking view over Fish Lake, have some time to pet your loyal sled dogs and get some well deserved rest. You will need it with a total elevation gain of over 800 meters!

It is a true challenging wilderness experience in which you will be one with your sled dogs, huffing and puffing with them going up the hills and sharing with them the thrill of dog sledding down the slopes. You will be amazed by their commitment, loyalty and never-ending energy.

Half Day Dog Sled Tour

If you do not feel like a true adventurer but still would like to get a taste of the thrill of driving a team of sled dogs, our half day dog sledding tour is for you. It will take you on an old mining road, flat, wide and easy for the most part. Perfect for a beginner who would like to give it a try but does not feel confident enough for more challenging trails.

You will learn how to drive your team of sled dogs like a real musher and a bond will develop between your canine partners and you.

Beware you don’t get hooked… dog sledding is highly addictive ! But no worry, after this introduction to the wonderful world of sled dogs you can still sign up for one of our longer tours…

Customized Dog Sled Tour

The kennel is the starting point of hundreds of kilometers of trails winding their way through some of the most beautiful places in the Yukon, where it’s not rare to catch a glimpse of caribous, moose or wolves. If you’re willing to immerse yourself into the life of a musher and live a once in a lifetime experience, we can provide you with your own a la Carte dog sled tour.

Maybe you would like to keep a certain comfort, spend your nights in the guest cabin and go for a different adventure each day. Or roughing it in the bush, go out camping with the sled dogs and howl at the moon with them.

There are plenty of possibilities and we can accommodate your needs, whether it’s just for an overnight or for a multi-day dog sled tour.

Conditions

You will drive your own sled dog team. Nobody sits in the sled.

You’ll have 3 to 6 sled dogs per team, depending on the length of the tour, the snow conditions, your experience and abilities.

We like to have small groups with no more than three people. We can make an exception for a group of 4 people willing to stay together.

You will have an experienced guide certified in wilderness first aid and carrying a first aid kit. He will lead the group with his own dog team.

Hot beverages and snacks will be provided during and after the tour.

We have winter gear available that you can borrow.

Dog sledding requires you to be in a relatively good physical shape. The physical demand can be compared to cross country skiing.

An introduction will be given to you prior to the tour. You will learn how to drive your sled, use the brake, give commands to the dogs, and also how to handle the dogs, harness them and hook them up. We like to consider our dog sled tours as a learning experience as well as a sportive one. After the tour there will be time to spend with the dogs, pet them and answer all your questions.

As you will see our dogs are well trained and very friendly. We will not tolerate any poor handling of them. It is very important that you listen to the instructions carefully as they can get injured easily if you hit them with your sled.
