One Week Of Active Dog Sledding
Escape from the noise and stress of everyday living and join us on a week long adventure in the pristine Arctic wilderness, where the only sounds are the sled running on the snow and the breathing of the dogs.
This is a unique trip, each days travel will be decided by the weather and adjusted to suit the preferences of our participants.
Our trips are small and personal with no more than 8 guests. Camping in the winter and caring for your dogs quickly bonds you together to make lifetime friends and memories.
The trails will lead you through the winter wonderland of frozen lakes, forests and majestic mountains. On route, look out for fox, owl, snow grouse, eagle, reindeer and moose
