The perfect example of customer service and how to be tourism ready. Great job by you and Hank in pulling all this together in such short notice with the new lot and... More

Winterdance Dogsled Tours offers a unique and memorable experience. The half-day tour is awesome but physically challenging. I planned to both ride and drive but the driving appeared to be more than I could handle. My friend Linda, a year older, took control of the sled and survived. We both enjoyed the dogs, the striking scenery on the 15-20 kilometer... More

Did the half day dogsled tour yesterday afternoon and had a great time! Great experience, wonderful guides, and beautiful scenery. Our dogs were fantastic and raring to go. The hot chocolate and snack halfway were also a nice touch. Would definitely come back again for another tour.

Girlfriend and I are visiting Toronto(yes in the winter, no we're not crazy) and wanted to check off dog sledding as something both of us had always wanted to try. With a few options in the day trip region of Toronto, Winterdance was phenomenal from booking to departure from their grounds. Had wonderful help both via email and over the... More

After reading Paulsen's book Woodsong to my grade 8 students I have been wanting to try dogsledding for years. We didn't count on minus 35 degree temperatures but were dressed for it and loved every minute! Great staff, from start to finish, wonderful, affectionate dogs, especially "Owl", and patient ( very patient!) guides, Moses and Mark, (when some of the... More

This is my 3rd dog sled experience and the first with WinterDance. The entire group of people were fantastic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, welcoming and especially very caring for their wonderful Siberian huskies. They are truly impressive in how they managed both the people and their dogs. I was impressed by their dedicated nature to this sport having been to the Iditarod... More

We booked this amazing experience as a surprise Christmas gift for 13 of our family members, ranging in age from 17-65. Every one of us had a wonderful, thrilling ride. The friendly team at Winterdance was very dedicated to their guests beginning the day we booked. Phone calls and emails were returned promptly, brochures mailed to us. Their gorgeous, friendly...

Thank you to Winterdance staff and the beautiful dogs for a very unique first-time experience! My husband had whisked me away to a mystery vacation spot for a couple of days and then showing up to this awesome place for an afternoon was a true highlight! I really appreciated the thorough instructions on how to ride. Moses was truly caring... More

I have been visiting Winterdance for several years now. The owners Tanya and Hank have become friends and my annual visit is always a highlight of the cold winter months. The staff are professional, knowledgable and treat clients like family. Young or old, the staff will ensure you have an amazing experience. The dogs are as beautiful as they are... More
