It can be hard to get to Isabella after a large snowfall. We were able to get to the site without four wheel drive. I recommend having a high clearance vehicle if there is a large snowfall as the road in can get a little questionable. The experience was really fun. We did the 1/2 day which ends up being... More

I honestly couldn't think of anything negative to say about my trip. Before my trip, the owner promptly answered all of my questions. When we arrived at the kennel, we were welcomed and allowed to pet the dogs, even though they were busy harnessing them. All of the dogs were super well behaved (I was really surprised considering how many... More

My daughter and I went on the Whispering Pines trip. It's hard to put the experience into words. Fairy tales, novels and Christmas carols made sense... dashing through the snow, on a four-dog open sleigh, over the hills we go, laughing all the way ... The white queen in Narnia ... Santa flying through the night in a sleigh full... More

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
