At Mountain Man Dog Sled Adventures, You'll have the opportunity to experience the thrill of driving your own dog sled!

Live the dream of feeling the raw power of Alaskan Huskies pulling the sled through the Canadian Winter Wonderland that is the back country of Sun Peaks Mountain Resort, just a short drive from Kamloops, BC.

You'll see signs of wildlife on our private trails that wind through the forest. We'll start off by showing you how the dogs live, and then they'll show you how much they love to run!

This morning we went on a dog sledding tour with Chris and his dogs. What an absolute wonderful experience. The dogs were so friendly, well behaved and keen to run. We were very impressed with the owner Chris who clearly loves all of his dogs, and they love him. If you are in the area, I would highly recommend a... More

We did the Born to Run tour at 11 am. We were a group of 5 (a single sled and 2 double sleds). We booked through the Sun Peaks Adventure Centre. We took the Sun Peaks Shuttle for a 10 min ride to the site. When we arrived we met our guides and the dogs. Our guide, Chris, is owner... More

Thank you for the great review! We appreciate hearing about the blankets, going forward, will ensure that ALL our guests use the blankets, or at least are encouraged to do so. We do have 2 blankets per sled on site, so no one should be without. We have been trying to figure out the best method of using the shuttle... More

A huge thank you to everyone at Mountain Man Adventures for a wonderful experience. A very special day for our family of six. Our driver Shaun, as were all drivers, was very informative and patient with us (the grandparents) and everyone enjoy having a turn driving. Great to be able to interact with all the dogs. Thoroughly recommend this experience... More

Booked the dog sled tour for my daughters as they love dogs. My wife and I went along for the ride ( my role was primarily as official photographer. Chris explained everything about the experience very clearly and we were all introduced to our respective dog teams. The tour went down dog sled only trails and stopped every so often... More

Thank you for taking the time to review! Your point about being afraid of dogs is especially important. We have had people with allergies and fear of dogs enjoy our experience. As the dogs are not generally running all over the place, you are able to approach the dogs (or not) as much as you are comfortable doing so. Dog... More

Our Born to Run tour was guided by the owner Chris. He is amazing! He definitely knew the trail like the back of his hand, as well as all the dog's names, personalities, background and stories. Whilst on our adventure he explained the process of training the dogs, how they keep them fit and busy in the summer months, and... More

What a fantastic adventure, we were picked up and driven to the dogs by the owner and introduced to our guides. My guide Jessica then took me over and introduced me to the dogs one by one for a pat and play. Once they were hooked up they were ready to go, and off we went through the trees as... More

One of the best experiences ever! The dogs are so beautiful and friendly. It was so much fun racing around at night with gentle snow falling. My boys got to feed the dogs when we were finished and we all loved it. A special thank you to Taryn for re scheduling my son and husband on another trip when my... More

Totally worth a visit. It's a lot of fun to drive or ride the sled through winter wonderland. Dogs just can't wait to get going. I'ts fun to see every dog's personality come out

I've been going to Sun Peaks for the past few years and can't believe I haven't done one of these tours yet. It is honestly one of the coolest experiences I've had. The dogs are all beautiful and treated extremely well by the excellent and friendly team who run the service. I would recommend the 3pm tour as you get... More

Chris S, Owner at Mountain Man Dog Sled Adventures, responded to this review

Your response has been effective! We've had people booking the 3pm specifically because of you. We definitely agree, the 3pm often has fantastic shadows across the lake. As the winter progresses, daylight changes quite drastically and so does the time of sunset. Thank you for taking the time to review us. Taryn More
