We had a reservation confirmed. Waiting there, no appearance by the company. Waited 15 minutes, called, the phone rang out. Waited another 5 minutes, called again. The phone was dead, it had been switched off. Sent email, waited another 10 minutes, tried calling again, nothing. Had to break the news to our daughter who had been looking forward this for days. That's the worst. It may be a fun experience, but clearly booking it means nothing. Be prepared for that if you do, and have a back up plan for your morning.

We tried the 20 minutes dog sledge. It is expensive for a very short activity however it was good fun and scenic. Worth trying once....

The experience is nice, but defitnitive the price is way too expensive and too short not a facity just in the middle of a land and you meet the guides 100 euros per person expended and in my opinion just 2 rides did not cover that money i feel i was scam.

I really wanted to do this as I was unable to ski this year. I was planning a trip with the children in the evening and hoped to do a 2 day course of sledding. I emailed three times but no response. Our hotel also tried ringing but no reply. So, get this...... I rented some snow shoes and walked to the farm. Took me almost out 2 hours to walk there. When I arrived the guy completely ignored me and carried on seeing to his dogs. When he realised I wasn't going to go away he came up. He did speak a little English which was good but said because the weather had turned warm the sledding had finished yesterday. I couldn't believe it as I had been waiting days for him to get back to me. I asked if there was any chance we could have one run that evening but no. Honesty, I could have cried. It was then another hours walk to the lift which would have been lovely but visibility was poor and I got quite worried walking though endless woods in the snow.
I can't rate the experience but it looked chaotic. The farm had one highland cattle in a pen, the one in all the pictures but not much else. I walked the run from the road which wouldn't have taken long on a sled but could see some other tracks. Just so disappointed.

The dogs loved it... We loved it... Really friendly staff and definitely something to put on the 'bucket list'. The dogs are very friendly and you can see how much the owner loves them... and they love him!

booked an excursion through the hotel, were told to come to malga Darē at a certain time. From the website it is not clear what the excursion entails but we were counting on the €30 ride option for two adults. We were picked up by skidoo at the edge of the road and driven to the farm where we waited for our ride. The dogs are lovely and the owner and staff are obviously very dedicated. The dogslide ride was lots of fun, there was plenty of snow and the weather very good. When we finished and needed to pay ( you need the skidoo so you are not going anywhere on your own...) the price turned out to be €80 which is very steep for what you actually get to do and see. Given that a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon is $150 I would think €50 for this experience is more fair. If I had known the price for certain beforehand I would not have come.

The excursion with the dogs was great, I have communicated by e-mail and made it clear that I want only the excursion but they included the farm without informing us and charged us Euro80/person which in my opinion is very expensive since the farm is not interesting.

My girlfriend and I tried this experience and definitely it has been great!
The dogs were lovely and wild at the same time. They really wanted to pull the sled and run!! Something worth trying at least once in the lifetime.
It was interesting also the visit to the farm (Malga Dare') and feeding alpacas and lamas, really suitable for children.
Next year I'm going to repeat the experience.

We had an evening sled ride with clear starlit skies and sparkling snow - it was magical. The dogs were brilliant - they couldn't wait to get going. The ride ended at a mountain resturant where we have superb locally produced food. They took us back on a skidoo - this was a lot of fun. can highly recommend Athabaska.
