Dog sledding is like mountain biking only you are being pulled by a team of 6-10 excited huskies across a snow covered trail. The tour is bumpy and physical with fresh snow on the trails.
This is not a ride and requires physical participation, and all guests must be ambulatory. What is required is that all guests are flexible, quick on their feet, agile, in good physical condition, as if you were going to ride a mountain bike through a forest!
All guests must be able to follow instructions given by our guides. If you are unable to follow instructions you will not be permitted on the tour. Why? Because you are going to be in charge of controlling the dog sled on the snow covered trail. This requires complete attention to our instructions at all times while acting as the driver (musher) or sitting in the basket of the sled.
All guests must be over the age of *8* to be permitted in the Dog camp or on the equipment at any time. This is to ensure that parents understand participation is required and that the tour is not a "ride".
Children 12 and older may be able to mush the sled but only at the discretion of the tour Guides. This is a decision made during your tour instructions and made by the tour guides.
No Snow Tours - *NO SNOW NO SLEDS* Unless we have confirmed snow all tours are booked as NO SNOW TOURS. When we have snow you are automatically booked for the snow tour. What is a NO SNOW TOUR? Well, you come along with the Huskies as we take them out on a training run. When we do not have snow it is the only way to meet the huskies. The huskies are highly active and behave on the NO SNOW TOUR the same way they would with the snow sled. (see the NO SNOW TOUR tab for multi-media info)
