Trip Itinerary
  1. Group welcome dinner and trip orientation.
  2. Following breakfast, arrive at the kennel and meet your traveling companions. We’ll teach you the essentials of driving a sled, harnessing dogs and then be off on a day trip. Novices and veterans alike will gain confidence throughout the day. Return to lodge at the end of the day.
  3. Travel by dog team. Explore new trails, cross secluded lakes. Roast local brautwurts over a fire for lunch.
  4. Travel by dog team. Perhaps you’re ready to tackle “Pinball Alley”, or take it easy on a route that weaves through beaver ponds and follows a frozen creek to a boreal marsh. Either way, we’re sure to see fresh timber wolf tracks, or maybe evidence of an otter.
  5. Breakfast and depart.
Group size: 2-7 guests with 1-2 guides. Minimum age 8.
