This was a great experience to see the beautiful wilderness and play with the amazing dogs. These dogs love to run! We had a group of eight (4 adults and 4 kids) and we split up into four sleds. We all had a blast. BTW... the morning we went it was 4 degrees farenheit and for Texans that is ridiculously cold! Once you get on the sled you are wrapped in a sleeping blanket and all is well. I'd defintely recommend this trip if you've never dog sledded.

I was very impressed with the staff and how the dogs were managed. As a dog lover I appreciate how much care and attention goes into raising happy healthy dogs. I speak from having to care for 2 dogs....There were more than 60 dogs when we went and all the dogs were happy and well cared for. The mushers knew each dog down to their personality. Which ones got along, which ones didn't, and what they liked or didn't like. Very unique experience.

This was the most amazing experience! We had stayed at the fairmont chateau where Kingmik was just down the road. The hotel provided a free shuttle for drop off or pick up. I recommend booking in advance, we had did the Narnia tour. Although this was only a half hour i would recommend doing the longer tour as you never want it to end. We had Chloe as our musher/guide and she was amazing and very educational. She even stopped at certain picture spots. Being an animal lover it was nice to see that these dogs love what they do and they love running. You can also tell they are very well taken care of. We will 100% be doing this when we visit again!

Kingmik deserves more than five stars! We booked the Great Divide Tour on December 23. The area received a LOT of snow a couple of days before, but the team at Kingmik worked hard to get the trail back in shape for tours quickly. It is amazing that they were able to do that in such a short period of time. We arrived to the staging area earlier than we needed and were allowed to interact with the dogs and watch the mushers prep for the tours. The dogs were really sweet and the mushers were very pleasant, answering questions and allowing us to watch them work.

During the pre-tour briefing, one of the mushers explained that due to the conditions from the recent snowstorm, we would not be able to drive the sleds. No worries, this actually worked out better because our musher, James, took some great photos of us in the sled, with the dogs in frame, before we headed back.

The mushers help the riders get into their sleds, and they provided sleeping bags to help you stay warm. When the dogs see that it is almost time to go, they get super excited! You can't help but be excited too (if you aren't already).

Once you leave the staging area, all is quiet except the sound of the dogs' paws on the snow. It is absolutely gorgeous. James was both our musher and local historian, providing lots of interesting information about the area and Kingmik during our trip. The 90 minutes goes by way too fast as you take in the amazing views and enjoy the overall experience.

When we returned, we helped feed our dogs (including Dan and Penguin, my personal favorites), and James gave us a card with each of our dogs' names. After a few more minutes with the dogs, we headed back to the Fairmont with our photos and amazing memories. We enjoyed it so much, we checked online that afternoon to see if there were any other tour times available during our stay. Not surprisingly, we weren't able to secure an additional tour on such short notice, but we definitely plan to return to the area in the future and enjoy another Kingmik tour.

Thank you to Megan and team for sharing these amazing dogs with us!

I didn’t want any more time to go by without letting you know bow much we enjoyed the sled ride on Saturday. My cousin (who was celebrating his 16th birthday) and I arrived early to watch the preparation. He is a quiet young man but he was clearly excited about the ride and enjoyed himself immensely.

We found out our guide would be Jared. Immediately we felt comfortable and relaxed with him. He impressed us with his knowledge and skill and, of course, his care for his dogs. We were both surprised at how easy it was to have a quiet conversation while on the ride. Jared provided all sorts of detail and information which enhanced the experience even further. We felt safe, secure and warm in the sled.

We had a wonderful time. Staying at the Chateau Lake Louise I chose this company over the others mainly for proximity. The hotel dropped us to the meeting point.
The whole experience was wonderful. From check in to good-bye we felt comfortable and included in the experience.
Craig was our guide and could not have done a better job.
It’s really hard to explain just how peaceful and smooth the ride is and how beautiful the scenery!! You just gave yo go and do it yourself!!

We had always wanted to try this and when we found the option to experience in Lake Louise we jumped on the opportunity.

The whole event was well organised and great fun - the weather was super kind to us and the excitement of the dogs was absolutely infectious.

Lots and lots of interaction with the dogs and team made the experience truly magically

We arrived for our 1.5hour dog sled tour to some very excited dogs and very welcoming tour guides. We were able to meet our team, learn all their names and get in some cuddles before setting off on our journey. The scenery was just breathtaking - we were wrapped up nice and cosy in our sled and Kylie our musher talked us through the area, the dogs likes and dislikes and what we saw along the way. The dogs are so well cared for and are absolutely gorgeous! They loved getting lots of cuddles and we even got to feed them a ‘snack’ at the end! What an absolutely unforgettable experience! If you’re looking for a reputable dog sled tour with excellent dog care look no further!! Thank you so much Kingmik for a once in a lifetime opportunity!

This is one of the best experiences we have had doing any kind of tour.
From the beginning you can tell these dogs are well cared for and loved. They wanted to be petted and were so gentle. Meeting them before the trip and feeding them after was a real treat.
You can tell they love what they do and from the beginning to the end of the trip , despite the horrible cold, their enthusiasm didn’t waiver and they were happy to keep on going.
Meghan was our guide and the owner of the company. Her sledding experience, the care of her dogs and knowledge of the parks are exemplary. She sets the trails, shows great stewardship of the park and is a true ambassador.
Long may this fun, unique and traditional method of transportation continue in the park.
Thank you Meghan, we will treasure this once in a lifetime experience and all the wonderful photos.

Great experience. Amazing scenery.

Very impressed with the care and bond shown by the guide towards the dogs. I left there without any doubt that the care the dogs receive is the highest priority of the guides. And with my wife and I both being massive dog lovers, it was great to see them being so well cared for.
Our guide, Rob, was super passionate about his job and the dogs. He knew everything detail about every individual dog in his team. He also had some great knowledge of the history of dog sledding and the part it played in Canada’s history.

Highly recommended.
