This was on our must do list and it exceeded our expectations…even my 77 year old mom LOVED it!!! It was so much fun, our musher Matt was fabulous and answered so many questions we had about the sport and the dogs. His dogs were so friendly and adorable too! Next time we will do a longer ride…30 minutes was too short. Highly recommend this!

My sisters and I had an Amazing experience. We all think our guides and teams where the best. Joe, Steve & Riley. All the guides were knowledgeable about the area and made our mushing adventure a wonderful lifetime experience. They were all super friendly and respectful. We will recommend this excursion and our guides to everyone we know.

I had great experience with. First, i was considering about this as “abuse animal” but when I see the way dogs enjoy running, know how people treat them, feed them with beef, chicken and fish, I changed my mind. Love dog, they are so cute and friendly.

We take a "picture stop" during all dog sledding trips. Our pups love all of the attention during the stops. And yes they love to sneak a lick in while you're leaning down for selfies. Thank you for the review.

Avoid
Nachiket_S

These people are horrible. I will never forget that they took the money and didn’t allow us to experience it as we were 5 mins late. They said that they have reservations all the day around and hence couldn’t accommodate it. Truth be told, there were not many people coming so they could have easily accommodated us as the reason for us to be late was there was heavy snowfall. There are many other places for this experience which are cheaper and much better in terms of experience. Please go there and absolutely avoid this one.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
