My wife and I have always wanted to experience a journey through a winter wonderland on a dog sled and in March of 2021, we finally did it!! We travelled to Lake Louise in Banff National Park on a Friday morning and checked out the area and shops before our departure. The weather on the drive in wasn't looking too promising, but by 11:00am, the fog was clearing off and the temperature was rising. If you're looking to book a trip on a sled, I would recommend the 12:00pm slot. We couldn't have asked for a better time. The sky was blue, the trees were painted with snow and frost and the overall temperature was hovering around 2 degrees C. It was perfect. Get to the staging area at least 15 minutes early. Depending on the weather, you might want to bundle up with some extra layers. Don't think twice. If you have to ask yourself; "do I really need this larger toque and extra hoodie?" then yes - put it on! If the suns out and your feeling warm, there are a lot of shady areas along the trail because of the trees at your side, and the dogs move pretty fast, so the cool air will certainly circulate around you. At first I wasn't going to wear my trapper hat and snow goggles with a hoodie underneath my winter jacket, but I'm glad I did so you will too! Plus if you do feel like you're overheating, there are a few stops along the trail. The sled was much more comfortable than it looked. I got in first and positioned myself at the back of the sled. The vinyl cushion was comfortable and my wife sat in front between my legs. I'm 6'-4" and there was plenty of room for my long legs. Just keep making minor adjustments to help with circulation. The views are so beautiful and fascinating, you tend to forget about the rest of your body. The sled also has a large blanket inside and the canvas wrap zips closed to keep you warm. Our guide, Chloe, was absolutely incredible. She made us feel welcome, she always had a smile on her face, she told us stories about the dogs and introduced each of them to us and even let us feed them their meaty-hearty snack at the end of the tour. Chloe also filled us with tons of information of the area and history of the trail and the dogs. We were very fortunate to have Chloe as our guide. Because of Covid, she couldn't take photo's of us with our camera, but she was more than happy to take pictures with her camera and then emailed them to us after the tour so we could have some memories in the sled with the dogs out front. There were two trail offers on the Kingmik website. One was the "Narnia Tour" and the other was the "Great Divide Tour." For an extra $200 and one hour more, I recommend doing the "Great Divide Tour." It's a 1 1/2 hour ride down the old Trans Canada Highway, through the Great Divide into British Columbia and back. You also whistle off the trail and take a magical journey through Narnia on your way back to the staging area, so you definitely get your moneys worth. Narnia is a trail through the forest and it's breathtaking! Now for the dogs! The highlight of the entire journey. The ones who worked hard and gave us the experience we will never forget. Brie, Stuart, Doctor, Horton, Meredith, Holly, McLean and the show stopper - Wallace!! They are an incredible group of dogs with amazing personalities. We couldn't have seen the Lake Louise area the way we did any other way. This was a truly magical, fascinating and mesmerizing experience. If you've never been dog sledding and it's still written on your bucket list in big bold letters, then you want to book a journey with Kingmik Dog Sled Tours in Lake Louise Alberta!! All around, 5 STAR journey!

We had a great experience! Loved the dogs and the passion of Cynthia, our musher. Fresh snow, sunshine and the tranquility of the dogs on a trail in the breathtaking Rockies. So cool! Out two lead dogs, Fuzz and Hazel, were real characters, especially Hazel with her extra-long nose. Do this trip if you get the chance. Really do this trip if you love dogs!

Incredible tour! We are from Montreal Qc and we primarily speak french and it turned out our guide Cynthia was also from Quebec so we were able to have a tour in french which we greatly appreciated. Views were breathtaking and the dogs marvellous. Would definitely recommend!

This was an amazing experience! My husband and I discovered KingMik through our hotel and we are so glad. Our guide, Cynthia, was extremely friendly, professional, and very educational. While we were unfortunately unable to drive the sled due to Covid restrictions, Cynthia made our experience so magical we didn't feel like we missed out on anything. We were able to interact with the dogs and learned so much about their care. It was important for us to go with a company that treats the dogs well and KingMik is truly that! I would highly recommend this company and this experience.
