GOT DOGS? This tour accommodates up to 3 adults and 1 small child or 2 adults and 2 small children per tour.  Overall weight of the entire party becomes the determining factor.

 

- Two dogsleds are pulled by a larger group of 10-12 dogs. The guide is on the front dogsled with up to 2 riders and the second dogsled will have one person driving and one person riding. As you get out onto the trails, you have the opportunity to drive, ride and control a larger team. This tour is completely dog powered and whenever the sleds are moving everyone is on board this peaceful, serene tour with your guide. This is a great way to dogsled, but have the guide with you to help control the dog team. Plus, you get to play with more dogs!  (See photo above for details).

- You will be with your guide for 1 hour and 20 minutes from start to finish and on the trails for one hour.

 

- We reserve the right to modify tours as needed for the safety of our dogs.

 

- Transportation is available.

Group Tours

 

Tours run every day all season, snow or shine!

 

Distance covered: 6 miles

 

Pricing

$100 each/Ages 9 & up    

$75 each/kids 3-8

 

- 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. (See photo above for a visual).  We will book out any remaining seats of the tour unless you choose to make your tour private (see paragraph below).

 

- We have multiple dogsled departure times to suit your needs.

 

- Do you want your family to have the dogsled all to yourselves?  You can make your tour Private by reserving the entire dogsled tour.  This allows you to have as many or as few people on the tour as you like, with a maximum of 6 total people.  This is a popular option for parties of 4 adults that want to be together on the same tour (4 adults cannot ever go on one tag sled tour together, they would have to split up).  By opting for the Private Group Tour option, regardless of how few people you bring, no one else will be added to your tour.  This allows more drive and ride time for each person as there could potentially be fewer people on the tour to share with, depending on the size of your party.

 

- You will be with your guide for 1 hour and 20 minutes from start to finish and on the trail for about one hour.

 

- Tours depart between 8:45 am-3:30 pm daily.

 

- We reserve the right to modify tours as needed for the safety of our dogs.

 

- Transportation is available.

Why is dogsledding so expensive?

The main reason is because our season lasts 4 months if we're lucky, and we have 135+ dogs that require care year round. Snowmobiles can be stored in a garage for 6-7 months in the off-season without maintenance costs, but dogs have daily needs that must be met all year long.

  • They eat every day.

  • They drink every day.

  • They create waste every day.

  • Some of them have medication requirements every day.

  • They must be exercised regularly all throughout the off-season.

We have at least 2 caring members of our staff at the kennel every day of the year.
