Search no farther, it's time to book your dog sledding tour with Kingmik.

My wife and I recently visited Lake Louise three weekends ago (right before COVID-19 started) to have an adventurous weekends in the Canadian Rockies. Needless to say we were blown away by the adventure, skiing, and scenery!

On our adventure we had researched companies for dog sledding as we thought it would be a fun new experience. Kingmik took us on an adventure of a lifetime. My wife and I were teamed up with an experienced guide, Chloe, who showed us the ropes for how to dog sled in Canada. Chloe made us feel like we were a part of her family, feeling like after five minutes we had known her for years. She was knowledge, knowledgable about all aspects of her job, the animals...simply put she crushed it.

If you are considering booking a trip for dog sledding in the Lake Louise area, we would highly recommend you book your trip with Kingmik! Thank you Chloe for an amazing adventure!!!!

Thank you so much for the most amazing feedback! I don't know if you went with Big Chloe or Little Chloe ( they represent the far ends of the spectrum!) but I'm confident they both crushed it.. Every day. In the cold and wind and dark and snow!. Thru all the poo scooping and heavy lifting and frozen sandwiches. They always put the dogs needs and guests needs before their own. My guides make me so proud!! And so do the dogs! thanks and all the best.

For our honeymoon, my husband and I decided to go to Banff/Lake Louise and went dog sledding with Kingmik! Our guide/musher was Cynthia, and we were so lucky to have her! The team of Alaskan huskies that we had were hers personally, and she raised and took care of each and every one! You can tell she treated and loved them more than family. The dogs looked so so happy, and were so excited whenever they started sledding! We got to know each of her dogs so well, and they were the most gentle and loving dogs ever. An incredible experience that we will never forget! We chose the 1.5 hour tour, and although it is more expensive than the shorter tour, it was totally worth it. Thank you, Cynthia!!

AWESOME!!! FULL OF AWESOMENESS!! A tried and true dog lover celebrating her 60th for a week in the Canadian Rockies. The dog sled tour with @Kingmik was the highlight of the week! Megan, the owner and our guide, is a super human who cares incredibly for each of her 46 working dogs and 9 retirees. Every dog has their own personality and it comes out when they are mushing. I have a fondness for all of them but Polaris and I had a special bond. If you want to enjoy a special treat in a stunning setting and have a memory that lasts a lifetime - go dog sledding with Kingmik!

Taking a dog sled ride was one of the things left to do on our bucket list. We decided on the short trip (30 minutes) and it was an excellent idea.

The dogs were all very friendly (with some shy exceptions that the guides told us about) and boy when they started getting hitched up .....did the excitement level ever climb. These dogs just love to run. The trip was very relaxed and because the sled is so quiet once you get going, you can have an easy conversation with your guide/driver.

There were several short stops during the trip to let the dogs catch their breath and my guide explained that she guages how long to let them rest based on how they are acting.

An excellent activity for adults and families alike as you can go with multiple people in a sled or solo for more space (at a slightly higher cost).

Shout out to M-P and James for the tour.

Highly recommended.

While up at Lake Louise for a weekend charity event and had the pleasure of participating in this dog-sledding activity. Our musher (Chloe) was very friendly, but also very caring and passionate about her team of dogs. We were introduced to each and were educated as to their individual personalities, strengths (and weaknesses). We were very impressed by the company's life-long care of these beautiful dogs. Very comfortable riding in the sled and were even given the opportunity to drive (well sort of). I would highly recommend this outing for anyone looking. I would recommend booking early though as my attempt last year on short notice was unsuccessful.

We had the most amazing time on our dog-sledding experience. From the moment we started talking to our guide Jared, it was incredibly evident the care, passion, and dedication that goes into each dog and their relationship with their musher. Jared answered any and all questions we had about the dogs, Banff, how he got into mushing, etc. We'd highly recommend a Kingmik tour to anyone who visits the Banff/Lake Louise area!

The great divide tour with KingMik tours was the highlight of our Canadian Adventure. Our tour guides Keva and MP were amazing hosts, they love the dogs and love their job... we were out in -28 degree weather and the guides managed to ensure we were warm ( with extra hand and feet warmers ) and also gave us an opportunity to drive the sled which was pretty cool ... great tour, great team , beautiful dogs ... couldn’t recommend them highly enough

We had an awesome experience with KingMik! The dogs are friendly and well taken care of. The staff was extremely informative throughout the tour and we learned a lot about the dogs as well as the landscape and wildlife in Lake Louise. I’d strongly recommend a KingMik dogsled tour to anyone who has never been dog sledding before!

It’s hard to explain why my wife and I have always wanted to do this but we have. We have had chances in other European resorts and not heard good things about time spent for cost.
So when we decided to go to Canada and Lake Louise, we saw this advertised and decided to enrol.
We paid our money in the UK and gave the paperwork to the man on reception at the hotel in Lake Louise inn. He contacted Kingmik company for a time that suited us.
We arrived a bit early for the activity but saw them come back with a earlier group and feed and change the dogs over.
We where allowed to get to know the dogs and take as many photos as possible before we head off. We where then given our dog sledge guide “James” with leader dogs Dr, Lorax, and Velo, Team Hazel and Bow and wheel Wallace and Hampshire.
All dogs where very well and had good shiny coats wet noses and bright clear eyes. As soon as the harnessing is attached they just want to run, in fact it’s hard to keep them still.
James made sure we where tucked in and gave us some safety points for the activity.
We set off at a great pace but this soon steadied to a trot and James explained all about the individual dogs characters, how they live and looked after. He also explained how the big races are conducted and how the dogs are managed on them.
We arrived later on at the Great Divide which is where Alberta and British Columbia meet in the National park. We had a few more photos and waited for the other teams catch up.
Once we had all done photos and turned around we set off again this time taking in some of the forest. James gave us a talk on the wildlife that thrives within it Bears, Moose, Elk, Wolf, Coyote, horseshoe hares and porcupine.
James even gave us the chance to control the team, which I did.
The power in the dogs at initial pulling off is tremendous. We made our way back to the start and was given more photo opportunities and a chance to feed them.
It was well worth the experience and it’s something I shall never forget, I have some fantastic photos and video of our experience. Well done James and the dog team and Kingmik for making a unforgettable experience for my wife and I 🇨🇦🇬🇧👍

One of the best experiences of our travels anywhere. My wife, daughter and I had two sleds with Cynthia and Jared. It was clear how much they care about the dogs. The views were beautiful and interacting with the dogs and learning about their amazing athleticism was very interesting. Cynthia and Jared were very informative both about the dogs and the beautiful views. I highly recommend this experience to everyone!
