We are a small family-owned and operated Sled Dog Touring company running dogsled tours out of Canmore, AB in the Kananaskis Provincial Park adjacent to Banff National Park. We have been in operation for 15 years with the British Army our main client. We run 2-hour, Half-Day, and Full-Day. This year we have opened our Kennel for tours during the summer season so we can offer family-dog adventures year round. We specialize in smaller groups and encourage involvement so you can experience dogsledding like a real musher.

We did the half-day tour, which included the lake loop & a forest run (with a nice fireside Indian lunch). The dogs were very well-trained and delightful; it was obvious everyone took great care to understand and embrace all their individual personalities. The guides were friendly & knowledgeable. We were lucky to have excellent weather, and really enjoyed the terrific... More

We did the 2 hour dogsledding trip and it was super fun. We got to guide the sled which was epic. The dogs are well looked after and loved and super friendly.

We went on a 1.5 hour sledding trip. We were able to drive our own sled which was an awesome experience with the guidance of Chantel. Very friendly staff, beautiful friendly dogs and definitely a must-do!

Russell openly shared his love and passion for his dogs and work. His knowledge of Canadian history and Sledding history was unbelievable. The dogs... OMG... they are all so beautiful, and each so unique! We had so much time to get to know them and play. We even were able to see and pet the 10 day old puppies!!! I... More

Unlike some tours which can be larger groups, this is much more personalised. Russell is passionate about his dogs, but also about the history of sledding and the area: we learned so much in a short time. Meeting the dogs was a great experience. You get lots of time with them at your own pace, and the layout really encourages... More

Dogsledding is so much fun! The cold wind in your face, the enthusiasm of the dogs, the glint of the sun on the snow!! A true Canadian winter experience that only the Rockies can provide. We were well cared for, as were the dogs, and we were very comfortable the whole time. We learned the names and personalities of the... More

The kennel tour was taken by the owner who gave us a brief history of dog sledding before introducing us to his dogs. The history part was very interesting but meeting the dogs and getting close and personal was brilliant, each with their own personality. This felt like a personal visit rather than a commercial venture, the interaction between the... More

Dogsledding is a winter country MUST DO! This company has some of the happiest dogs I've ever met! They are so excited to go (although this can get loud, the energy of it is incredible!) and so happy to be pet and loved! Our guides were friendly and helpful, we had the choice to drive the sled or sit inside... More
