Dogsledding has been on my bucket list for a long, long time and I can now check it off successfully! The day trip was great. I loved how laid back it was yet how much we were able to do. I really appreciated how the guides let us hang out with the dogs beforehand, harness them to the sled ourselves,... More

I did a 3-day dog sled trip with my 8 year old grandson. It was part of his Christmas present from last year. It was the best thing I've ever could have done. What an incredible experience!!! White Wilderness did an outstanding job with everything! This child will never forget the experience and has asked if he could have it... More

What a fun weekend! We had five couples in our group + guides Steve and Janet. From the time we arrived all at WWSDA were really accommodating, helpful (great inexpensive rentals if you need) and thorough with all hands-on instruction. Participate if want (help harness the dogs), or let them do it for you - your choice. Steve and Janet... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a day trip for Xmas! We were both blown away by this primal experience, the company is outstanding and we can't wait to go back for more. The dogs were amazing, we got to help harness them and they were so well behaved. Highly recommended, as I am still on Cloud 9 from the experience!!!

Myself and 2 mates travelled from Australia to experience the Winter Odyssey trip with White Wilderness Sled Dog Adventures. Peter (owner) was extremely helpful from day one with the planning and was quick to respond to any queries we had. The accommodations and transfers pre and post trip were great. Our guides,Shawn and Risa, made the trip for us with... More

My mother and I recently went to White Wilderness to go dog-sledding. As we arrived at the place we were greeted with beautiful dogs and friendly faces. They helped us get situated with our gear and began our adventure! They gave us the opportunity to learn a thing or two about mushing! So we strapped up the dogs (after a... More

I gave my husband the White Wilderness Sled Dog Adventure as a Christmas present. Although we had planned to take the trip the beginning of January, a family situation caused us to reschedule. Peter was wonderful in letting us take the trip in March. IT WAS A BLAST! Their web site is so helpful in planning what gear to wear/bring.... More

We recently returned from another great multi-day camping trip with White Wilderness. l went on my first trip with them in 2011 and have gone back many times since. Every trip is different, has it's own challenges and rewards. The one thing that's consistent is excellent customer service - you feel like part of the family; great, wholesome and hearty... More

We took a day trip with White Wilderness Sled Dog Adventures, and we could not have imagined a better trip. Our guide Theo was incredible and made it so easy, even for us first-timers. She was patient as we all started out and had a couple difficulties. We went through the woods and enjoyed the peace and beauty of the... More
