Experience Dogsledding in Montana! Based at Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa, located just 30 miles north of Yellowstone National Park, and 26 miles south of Livingston, MT. Drive your own team, or sit back and let our guides take you on an adventure of a lifetime! Outdoor fun for the whole family! Choose from three trek options: Tenderfoot (intro trek), Yukon (1/2 Day which includes a picnic lunch on trail), or Denali (Full Day & the guides grill steak and trout on trail!).

This was my first visit to Montana, and the dog sledding was a highlight of my visit. They take very good care of the dogs, who are all so excited to go out for a run in the snow! You get to drive your own team, which is easier than it looks, since the dogs know the route pretty well.... More

We visited Chico Hot Springs as part of our Tauck tour in January, so we came in a day early to take a dogsled trek. Wow, what a blast! There were 5 guests and 4 mushers on our trek. We chose the Yukon which is a 10 mile round trip with a stop for a picnic lunch at the halfway... More

I did the full day Denali trek with Mat and his dogs and it was absolutely amazing. To have your own team is a thrilling experience. Mat takes you clearly and effectively through the steps of beginners mushing. To feel in sync with the dogs and experience nature from a dogsled is truly magical. Mat and Hannah love their dogs,...

I had a wonderful time mushing on the Denali trail! The dogs were great, the scenery was breathtaking, and Mat and Hannah were wonderful. It was the best mushing trip of the 8 mushing trips I have taken in the U.S. and Canada. Stacey Evans

Going on a dogsled trek was something I had wanted to do for several years, and it was worth the wait. It was a gorgeous day on the trail, and was incredibly peaceful... just the sounds of the dogs, the sled and sometimes a breeze. The dogs are so excited to go... they're just fun to be around, and Mat... More

Went on 12/17/14.... From start to finish a truly amazing experience. First you meet Matt, a man who is truly following his bliss is a beautiful thing to behold. Then to watch the dogs so excited to run and be out on the trail in pristine wilderness with captivating silence; there simply is no other experience on earth like it!

What fun my friend, her friends, and I had on a winter day dog sledding. We were all in our early 70's except for one 60-something and had so much fun. The crew was great and had lots of work to do before we could get going. The dogs were so excited one could probably hear them yipping and yelping... More

I had a great time with Absaroka Dogsled Treks. Mat and Hannah are great hosts and it shows how much they love the dogs and Paradise Valley. I went on the half day Yukon trip, but next time I will book the full day Denali Trip. You can tell how much the dogs love what they're doing, and I really... More

It was a fabulous experience. I was nervous about dog sledding as I have arthritis in my knees and was not sure I would be comfortable sitting or able to stand to drive the team and that my husband might tip me out when he was driving. But it sounded so great I wanted to give it a try. There... More
