My wife and I went on an overnight trip at the end of January 2016, and had a FANTASTIC time. Our guide Theo was great - very helpful, knowledgeable, fun to chat with, and was great with the dogs. It was fun to harness the dogs, get them all hooked up to the sled, then let them do their thing,... More

They have great guides with a lot of experience. Did the overnight in the Yurt, the food was fabulous, and the so were the accomodations. The sledding is a ton of fun and would recommend to anyone looking to experience some of the Real Minnesota!

Just back from a half day trip with friends. Our guides (Joe and Ellen) were amazing and it was an experience I will long remember. The trip started with a nice dog sledding 101 (don't let go of the sled, use the brake, Gee, Haw, etc) and we were off! Our team of 5 dogs yapped and pulled and we... More

Wonderful overnight trip! Well run organization, great staff and atmosphere, well treated animals, and FANTASTIC food! Peter and his team are a well oiled machine! I highly recommend a day (or longer!) trip with WW! You'll love it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dog sled adventure with White Wilderness!! We chose to stay in a 'condo' on Lake Gegoka which was perfect because it was so close to the kennel. Peter (the owner and our guide) was also a top-notch cook. He prepared all of our meals beginning with dinner on the day of arrival and ending with breakfast... More

This was my 6th trip with White Wilderness. I went on the Winter Odyssey. Two nights in the comfortable Yurt followed by a wonderful night mush under a quarter moon and fantastic stars. The guides were great and the entire experience was wonderful. I recommend this trip for anyone interested in a wonderful dog sledding adventure. It would be perfect... More

White Wilderness is a great place to experience a hands on dog sledding experience. The dogs are amazing. Our guide, Theo, was very knowledgeable and caring of the dogs as well as her guests. She communicated her expectations and instructions well and that made for a very pleasurable day for all. Overall an amazing winter adventure.

This was an amazing trip and White Wilderness provided an excellent experience from start to finish. We originally purchased for the previous year but the trip could not be run due to lack of snow. White Wilderness was kind enough to let us reschedule for this year (at no additional cost) and it was well worth the wait. The staff... More

Best vacation ever! The guide was awesome and made sure we were dressed properly. The dogs seemed well cared for and were obviously so happy to be there. Can't wait to go back!!!

Looking forward to our fifth trip this winter. The dogs are always friendly and eager to run. The trails are great with lots of variety. And the yurt is the greatest way to spend a night under the stars. And oh yeah, the guides are the best.
