Who else will be on my trip, and how big are the groups?
Outdoor and adventure enthusiasts from around the world participate in our sled dog trips. We believe that the best outdoor adventure experience is created in a small group. It is for this reason that we typically only have four to six participants per group. (We can, however, accommodate special requests for groups larger in size.)
Who are your staff, and how many will be on our trip?
Our staff are seasoned outdoor professionals. Most work with the dogs year round to ensure the tight bond between staff and dogs, something that makes the White Wilderness trip experience unique. They are dedicated to making your trip a safe and enjoyable one. Depending on the group size (usually four to six participants), two guides will accompany the group.
How much time will we actually be sledding?
A day on the trail typically starts at 9am, when you arrive at the kennel, and concludes around 3:30pm. That said, it typically takes about an hour from when guests arrive, to get suited up, trained on the basics and out the kennel, upright on a dogsled. We typically travel 2.5 hours in the morning and then stop for lunch. This affords time to stretch, take protraits with the dogs, ask questions that have been brewing, as well as enjoy a hot lunch over a campfire (or homade soup on blustery days). We’ll travel for another 2 hours in the afternoon, typically returning to the kennel between 3-3:30pm. Guests enjoy helping put away the dogs, visiting other dogs or puppies, sharing stories around the warm wood stove and are typically on the road by 4pm. Of course, if a group is tiring or not up for the weather, we can adjust the afternoon schedule, and return earlier.
