I purchased a sled dog ride for my wife for Christmas. I wasn't sure what to expect since we were experiencing a December thaw. Not to worry however. Where White Wilderness is located is in a small snow belt around Isabella MN that has snow where other places do not. The staff / owners were great and friendly. Our guides... More

Had a great time with the guide and the dogs. One has to experience it to appreciate the silence of a dog sledding through the north woods. We had our own sled and had great food and wonderful weather.

Bought the dog sledding day trip for family members for Christmas. Went in March 2014. 0 degrees starting but beautiful!! White Wilderness did a great job getting us prepared with the right clothing and what to expect. It was beautiful and really fun. We were in the middle of nowhere with a guide and 5 dogs in charge of our... More

I would wholeheartedly recommend this trip as great fun for friends, families and couples. After all, you haven't truly lived until you've been unceremoniously dumped out of a dog sled basket while your husband gazes back at you with a look of pure astonishment and carries on sledding over the hill. No worries though, the snow provided a soft landing... More

Alright, alright, alright. This trip was absolutely amazing. It consisted of many laughs and much excitement. Staff were very friendly, supportive and our tour guide, Theo rocked. The dogs were friendly and the view was incredible. Being dragged and tipped over a number of times only made the ride more fun. Please note the above is due to an operator... More

White Wilderness kennel is about a 45 minutes from downtown Ely. It's a beautiful drive in Lake Superior National Forest. Note: if it's snowing heavily, it could be ( and was for us with no 4x4) very tough to get out of the kennel due to the steep hill. Bring kitty liter and tow rope just in case. Cellphone use...

A beautiful sunny day in Northern Minnesota: blue sky; perfect temps; great snow; extremely skilled guides; incredible dogs; 3 hours of driving the sled; hot lunch (gluten free diet request) on the lake; 3 hours to enjoy the ride in the basket of the sled. PRICELESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This will not be a once in a lifetime experience for me. I'm going to do it again, for sure! When you are learning something new, it's good to have a kind and patient teacher. Steve was so supportive and encouraging. We did the day trip with lunch on the trail. I am ready for the Yurt overnight camping next... More
