We had a good time dog sledding with Highland Wilderness tours. The staff was friendly and Penny was good to work with in planning the trip (some of our group also went snowmobiling). The instruction was straight forward but complete for the 'trip' we did. It was good to have the opportunity to hitch a couple of the dogs ourselves (under supervision of course).
It wasn't as fast as I was expecting. This may have been because reviews of dog sledding I had read pre-trip indicated surprise at how quickly the sleds moved and so I had a false expectation. The scenery along the closed loop trails was very nice but one gets to see the same spots 'going around the track' a few times too often.
The track we followed was well traveled. It would (I think) have been fun to get to run through some virgin snow (although I can see how that is difficult for Highland to provide). The heated cabin as a staging point was nice. Would have been a nice touch to have hot beverages available.
They have gear (coats, snow pants, gloves, balaclavas, etc.) available for use if you don't have the proper gear. A better separation between personal gear left in the cabin and gear provided by Highland is needed (someone from another group picked up a jacket left by someone in our group to go out snowmobiling in).
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Highland to someone who hasn't done dog sledding and would like to try it out, but for a second trip I'd be looking for something a bit more adventurous.
