Dog sledding day tours through the scenic Alberta Rocky Mountains


These dogsledding tours in the Banff area allow you to experience the thrill of mushing a dog sled team while you travel along trails in the spectacular Alberta Rocky Mountains.  Feel your heart race and your mind clear as you whisk on a dog-powered sled through pristine wilderness in the Canadian Rockies on your dogsledding adventure.  For the romantic at heart, snuggle up in a cozy blanket and enjoy the serenity of nature while dog sledding on a comfortable yet exhilarating tour of some of the most beautiful winter scenery Canada has to offer. 

Sit back and relax in the sled, or stand up and start mushing...it's up to you.   We welcome both the timid and the bold, the young and the old. Come and experience the raw beauty of the Rocky Mountains in Canada for a mushing good time.

These winter dogsledding adventure vacation tours give you the option to harness the dogs, hook up the team, and to drive the sled...all with the help of your friendly and experienced mushing guide. Dog sled teams consist of 5 to 7 Alaskan Racing Huskies, and you'll remember the thrill of your dog mushing adventure for years!   Mushing is a great way to see the winter beauty of the Canadian Rockies wilderness, and our dog sledding adventure tours are great for individuals, groups or family vacations.

These tours provide the opportunity for anyone (ages 2 and up) to partake in the traditional sled dog sport at their own comfort level. Immerse yourself totally and become a dog musher! Spend time on a spectacular mountain trail and build a unique bond with your team of Huskies.  Your team of Alaskan & Siberian Huskies take you through the Canadian wilderness of the Spray Lakes Provincial Park for the experience of a lifetime.  Enjoy many photo opportunities and the only traditional way to see the Rocky Mountains in the winter.
