Dog Sledding Trip Options

Day trips are suitable for guests of all ages and abilities.  You can choose to learn to drive your own team or to take a ride in the sled with the guide. Children must be 10 years old to drive their own team.  If you choose to be a passenger, you'll ride in the sled driven by an experienced guide (no novice drivers/guests are allowed to carry passengers in their sled).  If you choose to drive, know that you are an active participant in the experience.  You'll need to have good balance, leg strength, and arm strength.


Overnight trips are suitable for adults and children over 6 years of age.  For an itinerary of our overnight trips, please click here.

Custom private trips are available for either just dog sledding our a multi-day, all incluisve trip which includes lodging, dining, dog sledding, snowshoeing, and guided hiking to ice formations.  These trips require a minimum of eight participants and are great for family groups or organizations.


Reservations are required for all trips.  The cost of the trip includes: dog sledding instruction, the opportunity to help harness and un-harness your dog team, warm drinks and snacks when we return to the kennel, and extra warm boots to borrow (we do not charge for boot rental).  A 50% deposit is required for reservation, the balance is due when you come for your trip.  


Gratuities are not included.  If you had an wonderful adventure, please feel free to tip your guide. 

Cancellation Policy: We require three weeks advance notice for a full refund of your deposit.  If the cancellation is made within less than three weeks of the trip date and if we can fill the spot with another guest, we will issue a trip refund less a $50 cancellation fee per person.  If the cancellation is within 48 hours or less of the trip date, NO REFUND will be issued.  If Nature's Kennel has to cancel due to a lack of snow (which is very unlikely), then a full refund will be issued.
