Dogsledding Day Trips

Dog Sledding Day Trips, Family Dog Sled Rides, Dog Sledding in Superior National Forest

For those eager to try dogsledding, we offer single day excursions. A day trip includes full instruction, guides, gear and a hot lunch. You will learn to drive a dog team of 4 to 6 Alaskan huskies. Covering between 15 and 30 miles of scenic lakes and trails, the day trip gets you out in the wilderness for about six hours.

Dog Sledding In Superior National Forest

Our kennel is nestled in the middle of the Superior National Forest, affording a fantastic variety of lake travel and scenic forest trails to explore. Trips typically start at our kennel at 9am and return by 3:30pm. We will stop for a hot lunch mid-day. Typically, we will build a campfire and roast local bratwurst, or, on windy days, savor homemade soup and hot cocoa in a protected grove of evergreens. As always, our homemade cookies disappear fast.
