2016-17 Dog Sledding Day Trips Available:
We can run day trips 7 days a week as long as there are at least 2 people booking, and availability left on our tripping schedule. Call or email us to book the adventure.
The day trip begins at our shop in South River at 8:30 a.m. where your guide gives an orientation session about the dogs, sleds, trails and safety issues. Following this, we move out to the staging area and everyone gets involved in harnessing the dogs and hooking up the teams.
The excitement of the dogs is contagious and when all is set to go, the dogs pull and lunge against their harnesses waiting for your command “Ready! Let’s Go!”
The scenery along the trails is awesome and there is excellent opportunity for sightings of the many animals and birds that make the Algonquin their home. Expeditions follow prepared trails averaging 25 to 30 kilometers a day and the trails are planned carefully to highlight the beauty and diversity of the area.
Stops are made throughout the trip to take pictures or simply to marvel at the scenery. A hearty lunch is provided on trail; a brief rest for dogs and participants before continuing the day’s journey. The experience concludes with the return to the kennel around 3:00 p.m.
