Everything you need to know to discover this winter wonderland and to choose Ontario for your next dog sledding adventure.
The energy is infectious, and you’ll feel it before even stepping foot on the sled. It starts with the growing excitement of the dogs getting harnessed, then with the crack of the sled hitting the snow, and finally the exhilaration of running the team on winding trails under a snow-laden forest canopy.
Most operators offer a variety of outings from two-hour, half-day and full-day treks to night-time or multi-day sledding adventures. All trips are fully outfitted and guided; just come dressed warmly, keep your camera close and get ready to be blown away. Borealis Dogsled Tours delivers pure, unadulterated adventure on multi-day excursions out of Vermilion Bay. M.U.S.H.E.R.S Dog Sled Tours operates out of Warren, just west of Sudbury with a team of friendly dogs, great guides and traditional wooden equipment.
There are several amazing kennels offering dogsledding opportunities in and around Algonquin Provincial Park. Meet the hardworking team of Siberian Huskies at Winterdance Dogsled Tours in the Haliburton Highlands, bordering the park. Go star status and book the Heli-Dogsledding Tour; arrive by private helicopter and enjoy a dogsledding tour complete with trailside lunch by a roaring fire. Travel through stunning landscapes in and around the park with Highlands Wilderness Tours, Snow Forest Adventures, or North Ridge Ranch in Muskoka. Check out Sugardogs Adventure Company in Sundridge. Haliburton Forest Dogsledding drives teams on over 300 kilometers of trails on 100,000 acres of private forest. Mush indeed!
