This experience was my husband's favorite part of our two week Canadian Rockies/Pacific Northwest vacation. If you are a dog lover, this is for you! We went in July 2015, so we did the meet-and-greet rather than the sledding experience. There are 177 dogs on site, and they jump and rub on you, so you will definitely get mud and... More

First of all, the town of Canmore is really cute. We were there on the day of the farmer's market and I am still mad at myself for not buying a handmade pepper grinder. Snowy Owl Sled Dog Tours was a great time. After meeting at the store, you hop in their van for a 10 minute ride to the... More

We booked the summer tour to meet the Sled Dogs and it was a fantastic morning. The centre where the dogs are is a great set up which is family run. We got to interact with the male dogs while the staff told us all about the life of a Sled Dog, different breeds and the centre. We also walked... More

On my first visit to Canada, my friend booked us on the sled tour. The staff were attentive, professional and keen to ensure you enjoyed your day. They are very well organised and nothing was to much trouble. The whole experience was great from start to finish. You get to drive your own sled, if you want to, you get... More

Fantastic few hours with these lovely dogs. Ethan our guide really knows his stuff, we learned a lot and it was entertaining too. Have been on one of these type tours in the winter in Lapland and didn't get to pat the dogs as they were all chained up. This was summer and they were roaming free so came up... More

Our wonderful summer dog sled tour was very informative with lots of lovin from many beautiful sled dogs! We were picked up by Ethan at the Snowy Owl store in downtown Canmore & after a short comfortable van ride we were greeted by our tour guide Carlin & our first furry friend Koda.
