Dog Sledding Day Trips: 10-mile and 20-mile Options

Our 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 sled driven by an experienced guide (no novice drivers/guests are allowed to carry passengers in their sled).  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). 

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.
