Day trips are the perfect option for families who want a unique, memorable, and affordable dog sledding experience. Our day trips are offered in both the Premier Style (one person per sled) and the Traditional Style (two people per sled, sharing riding and driving). For the Premier Style Day Trip, we keep groups private (two minimum) but for the Traditional Style Day Trip people from multiple parties may be combined on the daily outings. Either style, expect friendly instruction and guidance as you learn to drive your dog team.

Dogsled by day, and retire to a north woods lodge for a relaxing evening. Our lodge trips are perfect for those couples whose desire to rough it ends at the end of the day. Enjoy savory meals and comfortable accommodations after a full day of mushing on the trail. Days are spent exploring a spectacular region considered by National Geographic as one of the top 50 places you must see, and nights are spent relaxing by the fireplace in a cozy lodge with good conversation.

Alright, alright, alright. This trip was absolutely amazing. It consisted of many laughs and much excitement. Staff were very friendly, supportive and our tour guide, Theo rocked. The dogs were friendly and the view was incredible.
Thanks for the trip guys! Wasn’t quite sure what to expect since none of us ever sledded before. Super great guides and everyone had a blast. Want to go again. Thought the price was very reasonable concerning all the logistics involved. Would recommend to anyone, any age.
