Anyone wanting to experience a Dog Sled ride, you must go with Snowy Owl tours, I researched all the others, what made these guys different was their expertise, their respect for their dogs and the attention to the customers needs, this was better than winning the lottery, the hilarious instruction just before running your own Dog Sled team was absolutely...

Staff we're amazing including the dogs. Worth the experience. We will remember this for many years. Both of us had an opportunity to drive the sled and team. The 2 hour trip was a fabulous opportunity to learn about the types of sled dogs and enjoy the scenery. So peaceful. A thousand recommendations. J & E Ridgway

This tour company is top notch. They pick you up at your hotel in Mercedes shuttles that are very comfy. They picked us up from Banff. The drive there was beautiful. Once there Jeremy gave us an overview of how things work and lessons on how to drive the dog sled. As an instructor he was engaging and funny. My... More

From there our driver took us to the dog sledding location, where an... More

By far and away one of the best experiences ever! We were swayed by the professionalism of the website and that commitment showed through the entire booking and tour process. It's nice to see a family-run business and Jeremy is obviously passionate about his work, the dogs and ensuring his guests have the best experience they can. The 2 day... More
