Morning Howls and Tail Wags

As the sun peeks over the snow-covered pines, our sled dogs greet the day with a chorus of howls. It's a symphony of excitement that sets the tone for the adventures ahead. Tails wagging, they eagerly await the day's first run, a burst of energy held in check only by the anticipation of hitting the trail.


Team Bonding and Preparations

Before the first sled glides through the snow, there's a flurry of activity. Our experienced mushers check the sleds, ensuring all the gear is in top condition. Meanwhile, the dogs are harnessed and checked for their turn on the trail. It's not just about getting ready for the ride; it's a time of bonding between the mushers and their furry teams.


The Trail Beckons: Morning Run

With the preparations complete, the first run of the day begins. The sled dogs, with their eyes sparkling and paws eager, lead our guests through the enchanting winter landscape. It's a journey of crisp air, pristine snow, and the unique thrill that only dog sledding can offer.


Midday Siesta and Playtime

After the morning run, our sled dogs enjoy a well-deserved break. They bask in the winter sun, playfully interact with each other, and, of course, enjoy a few belly rubs from our mushers. This downtime is crucial for recharging their energy, ensuring they're ready for the adventures that await in the afternoon.


Afternoon Adventure Unleashed

As the afternoon sun casts long shadows on the snow, it's time for the second run of the day. The trails, now familiar to our sled dogs, take on a different charm in the changing light. It's a time of speed, agility, and the pure joy of running through the snowy wilderness.


Evening Tales by the Campfire

As the day winds down, our sled dogs gather around the campfire, basking in its warmth. Here, under the vast Canadian sky, stories are shared. These are not just stories of the trails, but tales whispered between mushers and their loyal companions—a unique bond forged through adventure.


Moonlit Trails: Twilight Run

For those seeking an extra dash of enchantment, our Twilight Run offers a magical experience. Under the moonlit sky, our sled dogs lead the way through a winter wonderland. It's a serene and breathtaking journey that adds a touch of mystique to the day's adventures.


Rest and Dreams of Tomorrow's Trails

As the night settles in, our sled dogs retire to their cozy kennels, tails contentedly curled. In the quiet of the snow-covered wilderness, they rest, dreaming of the trails they've conquered and the adventures yet to come.
