This was a Christmas present for my Girlfriend and her 6 year old daughter and as she put it, it "was the best present she's ever received!". Originally we had thought about doing the shorter "riding" tour offered at Boyne Highlands by Nature's Kennel but really wanted to see the kennels and give my GF the opportunity to mush her own team of dogs. It was DEFINITELY worth the extra 2.5 hour drive, we all had a blast! The dogs are awesome and Nature's Kennel has a top notch facility and staff. Our guide, Jessica, did a great job showing my GF how to hook up the teams and prep the sleds. My GF then got to drive her own sled behind the sled that myself and her daughter rode in (piloted by the Jessica) and Jessica even let her daughter stand with her in the musher's position for a part of the ride. The trails were great too, very remote and beautiful! Afterwards we all warmed up with hot cocoa, coffee and fresh baked cookies. Im sure the ride-only offered at Boyne Highlands by Nature's Kennel would be awesome too but if you have the time, i definitely recommend the drive up to their main facility to mush your own sled! Definitely dress warm, wear a neck gator/face protection and bring a camera!
