Our traditional dog sled ride was arranged by Yellowknife Outdoor Adventures. We were picked up from our hotel on time and driven to Beck's. As soon as we got there, we were greeted and told we could go to the waiting area as mentioned in some of the reviews. Well my 10-year old daughter must not have heard because she made a beeline to see the sled dogs. She spotted an enclosure that included some puppies and we were soon taking photos and visiting all the enclosures. We were able to walk up to where the majority of sled dogs are housed and take photos as well. Then we watched a dog team pull a sled into the yard. After the sled was unloaded and the dogs changed out, we were invited into the sled. One of the greeters offered to take a few photos of us and then we were off. You can tell the dogs knew the routine as there were almost no verbal instructions needed from the young musher. Given the temperature, we thought the ride once around Grace Lake was about right. When we got back, we asked a second greeter to take photos of our family of four, which was not a problem. We were then asked if we wanted to get out of the cold and wait in the waiting room for our ride. We declined and took photos with some of the sled dogs who had pulled our sled instead. A van pulled up within a few minutes and we had our ride back to town. This was quite a different experience than we had in Alaska with a much higher-priced Disney shore excursion, but we enjoyed our time with the sled dogs.
