Lead Dog's Choice - Introduction to Dogsledding

View from the dogsledWe'll take you dogsledding on the southern edge of the great northern forests in Canada...a sense of horizons unexplored... where wolves roam ice clad lakes that heave and groan and snow weighted bows greet frosted dawn.

This extended run into the backcountry (6 - 8 hours) includes special features not part of our regular Full Day of Mushing.

This is your best combination of mushing, learning and adventure opportunities along the trail with extra attention to details at Sundogs kennel. Once we have a few miles under our runners, you'll have a chance to drive the sled for a while with a guide-host at your side. This excursion includes a stop for a campfire and trail lunch at our backcountry camp. You can warm up in a cozy, wood heated trapper's-style canvas wall tent.

guests enjoying dogsledding at Sundogs Sled ExcursionsAt the camp we'll look at some nuances of the snow pack, finding out how wildlife weather's the 'fourth season'. There are good opportunities for photography too. We provide snowshoes for a short side trip.
