At Mountain Man Dog Sled Adventures, You'll have the opportunity to experience the thrill of driving your own dog sled!

Live the dream of feeling the raw power of Alaskan Huskies pulling the sled through the Canadian Winter Wonderland that is the back country of Sun Peaks Mountain Resort, just a short drive from Kamloops, BC.

You'll see signs of wildlife on our private trails that wind through the forest. We'll start off by showing you how the dogs live, and then they'll show you how much they love to run!

We booked through the Sun Peaks Adventure Centre and after a short shuttle ride to the top car park near the Nordic Ski Area, we were met by Taryn and one of her 11 week old puppies. We walked a short distance with the puppy pulling hard on her leash, trying to prove she was lead dog. We were welcomed... More

I would recommend this to anyone looking for an exciting outdoor adventure. The dogs all have so much personally and our hosts were fantastic. Check driving a dogsled off the bucket list.

Myself, my partner and a couple of friends did the Bark at the Moon dog sledding adventure, and wow was it worth it. It was an amazing once in a life time experience. Our guide Taryn was incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable, she told us all about their dogs and answered any questions we had. It was a beautiful blue... More

Top marks to our wonderful team: Sparkey, Barkley, Aero, Honey, Oakley, Zelda, Stormin' Norman, and driver/guide Taryn. The company is a young family involved in their community and committed to the well-being of their dogs. During the sledding, we both had a chance to drive the sled, and Taryn pointed out wildlife tracks along the route. We enjoyed that the... More

Dog sledding with Mountain Man Adventures at Sun Peaks Resort in BC is a unique, exciting and inspiring afternoon. This is a hands-on business with knowledgeable guides and well trained and charming dogs. Clients are encouraged to drive the sled around a frozen lake to benefit from the full experience. There is also an evening tour with head lamps. The... More

*****Highly recommended***** The Born to Run sled dog tour we took with our 20 y.o. Daughter and 24 y.o. son was the realisation of a long held dream. We visited Sun Peaks in 2012 but didn't do it then. When we planned to return in 2016, I made sure there was room in the budget and schedule for this. Mountain... More

We had an awesome time dog sledding this morning. It was our first time dog sledding and weren't disappointed. We had two sleds between us. The guides were very knowledgeable about the dogs, the area we sled through and sledding in general. We have a 6 & 8 yr old and had no concerns for our or their safety at... More

I have enjoyed dog sled experiences across Canada and believe this to be one of the best run operations I have dealt with. I always look for reputable operators that take care of their animals and Chris and his team clearly love their dog teams and make every effort to provide them healthy meals and warm, comfy homes. The trails... More

Before you complete your skiing vacation, take time and do dog sledding with Mountain Man Dog Sled Adventures. It is a 1.5 hrs ride (and they will let you be the driver if you wish ... DO WISH!!!) that is exciting, relaxing, fun, thrilling as the team of dogs take you through the woods surrounding Sun Peaks. Do not need... More

If you're after a change from skiing then dog sledding is the way to go. I took my 11 year old son and my son in law. We had such a good time with the friendly, well cared for dogs and their puppies that we didn't want to leave!
