Just to let you know that four of us have been on your tours over the last few weeks and we would like to say how much we enjoyed it. Well organised, well equipped, well trained. As a veterinarian (and we're all dog owners as well!) I was very impressed with your teams. Your dogs were happy and evidently very... More

What an amazing experience. The team at Snowy Owl were so enthusiastic from the moment we walked in the door, through the bus ride to the sleds, our guide Julia and especially the dogs. This was our first time going on a dog sled and it was beyond what I expected. Not only did we get to see some spectacular... More

We took my son for his 7th Birthday and we had a blast. The staff and digs were great and the entire experience was amazing. They brought out the birthday cake for him after our ride and he could not have been happier. He told me on the way home that it was the best memory of his life. Thanks... More

I did the 2 hour tour and had the most amazing time! We got to play with the dogs and learn about how to control the sled dog team. It was about a 10 km trip and I got to control the team for 5 km while my girlfriend got to control the team for the other 5 km. I... More

My mom and I decided to have a short get-away to Canmore, and this seemed like the perfect activity for us to do. The owner-operator Jeremy was great. Our on-sled guide was friendly and answered all of our questions. The dogs are very well taken care of. Be prepared to help your dog team out and get off the sled... More

It was over way too fast, but we had an awesome time on our dog sled tour with Snowy Owl. Due to the warm weather and resulting icy conditions on the trail, we were asked if we would pair with a guide instead of driving our own sled, as the company wanted to have more overall guides with the group...
