“Great adventure”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Bought the dog sledding day trip for family members for Christmas. Went in March 2014. 0 degrees starting but beautiful!! White Wilderness did a great job getting us prepared with the right clothing and what to expect. It was beautiful and really fun. We were in the middle of nowhere with a guide and 5 dogs in charge of our sleds. We tipped over our sleds, laughed, rubbed dog bellies at lunch and took great pictures! Theo was our guide and she was very patient with a bunch of middle age out of shape passengers! The 6 hour trip was plenty and so, so much fun. We would recommend to anyone and the cost is worth every penny!

“Energetic Fun for All Ages”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

I would wholeheartedly recommend this trip as great fun for friends, families and couples. After all, you haven't truly lived until you've been unceremoniously dumped out of a dog sled basket while your husband gazes back at you with a look of pure astonishment and carries on sledding over the hill. No worries though, the snow provided a soft landing for my already well-cushioned bottom, and the rear guide came along a moment later to let me hop into her sled. This was an unforgettable experience with happy memories that we will be laughing and reminiscing over for years to come!

“We got this”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Alright, alright, alright. This trip was absolutely amazing. It consisted of many laughs and much excitement. Staff were very friendly, supportive and our tour guide, Theo rocked. The dogs were friendly and the view was incredible. Being dragged and tipped over a number of times only made the ride more fun. Please note the above is due to an operator error, no fault of the pups. Looking forward to more practice. Thanks for the great experience.

“Incredible Experience”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

First time was yesterday!! Didn't know what to expect but it was MORE! More adventure, more excitement, more breathtaking views of the trails; more laughs, more everything! Our guide Theo was more then amazing. She gave us great instruction and then let us do some experiential learning! Through the day she periodically stopped to let us know what was ahead and how we should drive it. She was warm and friendly, smiled even when we came to a stop with 5 dogs instead of 6 (we didn't lose one but... too much to explain). It was a gorgeous day; peaceful, beautiful, quiet with the sled running through huge white pine forests under blue skies and bright sunshine! Fabulous!
