For the ultimate winter adventure, immerse yourself in a dogsled camping trip. Our experienced guides help you develop skills to stay warm, keep comfortable and enjoy the best of winter and mushing. We’ll carry all of our supplies with us and make fresh tracks deep into the wilderness, camp in secluded bays, cook over fire and sleep under the stars, or snug inside a tent with proven -40 sleeping bags. Don’t be surprised to develop a strong connection with the dogs, as their enthusiasm is contagious. These are physically active trips with a genuine sense of adventure. Join a pre-scheduled trip, or gather a group of 2 or more for a custom trip that matches your schedule. Camping trips are typically Premier style. You will drive your own solo sled.

These camping trips are custom built to order. We will balance the trip on your interest, ability and the unique conditions that each winter brings. We can incorporate running the trip on our trail system, a combination of camping and a night in the yurt, and when conditions allow traveling into the Boundary Waters Wilderness. Camping trips include your first and last night’s lodging.
