We are pleased to announce that Dog Sled Tours are now available in the following ski resorts:
This tour begins with a 1.25 hour journey along the historic Yellowhead highway to the Small River rest area west of Valemount, BC. Your experienced guide will teach you how to use the sled and work with the dogs.
You will then have the opportunity to drive your own team of sled dogs past snow-covered trees, waterfalls, open meadows and abundant wildlife. For those not wanting to drive, simply snuggle in the sled and soak up the incredible scenery. Enjoy a native-style campfire lunch alongside a mountain stream!
The Jasper Dog Sled Tour includes a native-style campfire lunch and hotel pick up and drop off. The tours depart from Jasper daily in the morning and afternoon. Leave about 5 to 6 hours for a round trip. The price is CDN$215 for an adult and CDN$145 for a child aged 5 to 12 years.
Mush! Dogsledding is one of Canada’s oldest official sports. For thousands of years, the dog has been an integral part of First Nations life.
Learn about this ancient mode of transportation as you blaze through the meandering forest of towering Western Hemlocks and Cedars. Witness stunning views of the Whistler Valley, Olympic sites, Black Tusk and beyond as the enchanted forest trails open up to reveal a spectacular world of winter beauty.
Your adventure isn’t over until you’ve warmed your hands and shared your tales of adventure over a hot drink and a snack in our staging area!
Rates for a round-trip (including transportation) 2-2.5 hour tour are CDN$167 for an adult (2 adults per sled) and half price for children when sharing with 2 adults.
Dog Sledding in the Canadian Rockies!
The dogs are passionate about what they do! On the longer tours you can give it a try yourself – make sure you have the anchor ready just in case you need to stop! Guides will assist you to give you a helping hand and you can just sit back and relax in your sleigh as you speed through the winter wonderland. Be sure to take your camera as these dogs like to have their photo taken!
Banff dog sled tours , Lake Louise dog sled tours , Canmore dog sled tours and Panorama dog sled tours have been timed so that you don’t have to take a full day off skiing or you can add another tour such as snowmobiling to maximise your precious ski holiday time in one place. Now there are increased transfers from Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise and for 2008, dog sled tours out of Panorama, getting to the dogs has never been easier this winter 2008 ski season!
