After a full instruction session given by your guide, most trips run from the kennel. Everyone is involved in harnessing the dogs, hooking up teams and packing the sleds.

Depending on the group and trail conditions, travel time is 2½ hours to 5 hours. We stop often to observe the beauty around us or to take pictures and a lunch stop is made on route.

The camps are preset with prospector tents that have raised plywood sleeping platforms. The tents are heated with wood burning stoves that provide warmth and a place to dry clothing. Each camp has a large tent capable of sleeping 12 people comfortably and 2 smaller tents with a capacity of 6 each. All the camps have been set beside lakes or river.

At camp everyone participates in chores – gathering and cutting fire wood; hauling and heating water; feeding and watering the dogs; food preparation and clean-up. Tasty and abundant meals are designed to provide nutritional needs for winter activity.

Evening activities are generated to the interest of the group ranging from quiet times around a campfire to dazzling displays of starry skys to night hikes or wolf howls, a rousing group game or an evening of story telling and poetry reading.

The next day brings a new trail and a new adventure. If you are out for more than one night, your group has the option of traveling on to a new camp.

On the final day a hot lunch is served at the shop giving everyone time to reflect on the experience and prepare for the trip home.
