1.5 Hour Tour

Our Most Popular Adventure!

About: This is an introductory dog sledding adventure open to those ages 2+. This experience last about 1.5 hours from start to finish. For the first 30 minutes or so, guests will be able to meet and greet the sled dogs, see where they live, pat them and can even help their musher(s) prepare the doggies for the trail. Once the doggies and sled are prepared, guests will then embark on a 5 mile/45 minute ride (ride time varies depending on guest weights, trail conditions and the doggies pulling the sled). The mushers always try to leave 10-15 minutes at the end for guests to say thank you to the sled dogs by giving out belly rubs for a job well done.
