Chocpaw Dog Sled Expeditions are geared for participants looking to get a “Hands-On” Experience. 

We teach you to drive your own team of sled dogs. 

Two people per sled – taking turns driving and sitting in the basket.

We provide the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to enjoy the Canadian winter, and to develop a working relationship with your team of sled dogs as you travel through the Algonquin wilderness.

You must be able to work with other people and be willing to participate in all aspects of the expedition. From the beginning of the program, you are required to assume responsibility for your dog team; from safety on the trail, to their care and maintenance at camp.

We take time to be sure you have adequately prepared for your trip in all respects, and provide you with an information package, including a clothing and equipment check-list, well in advance of the trip. We supply all necessary sledding equipment and an abundance of food, making accommodations for dietary preferences or restrictions where possible.

All our programs begin with a thorough instruction in dog sledding and winter trekking skills at our office in South River.

If guides exceed your expectations, gratuities are welcome.
