A truly 5-star experience that everyone should try at least once! The team was helpful and friendly as we learned all about the dogs, helped to harness them, and even got to love up the dogs up on breaks and reward them with treats at the end! You can interact as much or as little as you like with dogs depending on your comfort level. The scenery was absolutely stunning traveling through the snow laden forest. #must-do

I brought my teenager who was nervous about driving the sled however her guide got her out of her shell and helped her drive (she has physical limitations and her guide was amazing with her)! We absolutely loved the experience and we got to interact with the dogs and puppies. Don't forget your sunglasses! Weather was perfect at this time. Definitely recommend especially for one on one parent/child.

White wilderness was great!! My wife and I ,late 60s traveled from florida with our son and grandson,14 the day after Christmas to do the3/4 day dog sledding trip. The crew was top notch and taught us how to harness the dogs to the sled and also taught us how to do the mushing ourselves .What a blast! The dogs were so friendly and raring to go! Eliza was our guide and she was fantastic ! She led us through the most beautiful snow covered trails and then we stopped for lunch and cooked brats on an open fire near the trail! It was truly a winter wonderland! A special thanks to Peter McClellend ,the owner for providing a safe, super experience in the north woods. It was a trip we'll never forget!

This was an experience of a lifetime that I highly recommend. I went with 2 friends and we did the 3-day condo trip. The first day was a how to day; dress, harness, ride, drive the sled. A perfect first day. The 2nd day was more advanced and different than the first. Again perfect. The 3rd day was an afternoon departure with a sunset and night sledding under the stars! Amazing. Peter and his guides are top notch, they will absolutely make sure you are not cold. The first day we went it was -29! I was worried and even though it was hard to move in my 5 layers I was not cold! The next day was 22, almost a 60 degree swing! Dog sledding was more physical than I expected, but totally doable, again the guides will absolutely make sure you are comfortable. Peter and his guides made sure we were very well fed, I think he could open a restaurant from homemade breakfasts and dinners with dessert to meals like steak and shrimp and hot cocoa on the trail we were never hungry! The dogs, are so sweet and loving, it’s hard to leave them! I can’t say enough about this trip, seeing this lifestyle was fascinating, book this trip now and bring your family and friends, you won’t regret it!
