We are excited to announce that we are offering GUIDED SLED DOG TOURS! The sled dog rides are given on our private trail system near MELFORT, SK, an easy 2 hour drive from Saskatoon and 2.5 hour drive from Regina.
Guide and owner, Aaron Campbell, has been mushing for 26 years. He has participated in races from Alaska to Minnesota and everywhere in between with possibly the most unique location, racing on the frozen Beaufort Sea in Tuktoyaktuk, NWT.
Let our race winning dog team take you down the trail. You will feel the power of the team and their passion for running as the quick release is pulled. You will hear the sounds of the runners sliding on the snow and the dogs exhaling. Take in the beautiful winter scenery, sit back and enjoy the ride!
“This experience was fantastic! Aaron (and family) were incredible, so informative and friendly. You can see the love the family has for their dogs and the dogs have for them. Honestly it was such a happy, positive experience that we left talking about how much fun it was and we need do that again. I’m still smiling! I can’t wait to see Chinook, Brave and Borealis again”
~ Tasha Scowen
“We had a fantastic afternoon sledding with Aaron and his amazing team of dogs. He made sure we were comfortable, warm and toasty. The kids had a blast interacting with the dogs and enjoying the ride. Thanks again.”
~ Georgia Lynne
What to Expect
When you arrive at the trailhead of our private trail system you will be able to park in the designated parking spots and will see our musher, and your tour guide, getting the sled dog team ready for your tour. Each of our guided tours will start with an introduction to the sport of mushing, touching on the history, equipment and care/feeding of our dogs. Your guide will also teach you how to harness and hook up the dogs. Your guide will ensure your safety and is always ready to answer any of your questions.
There are a variety of seating arrangements on the dog sled. We will create a “custom fit” for you and your family or group. Depending on your group sizes we may take more than one trip around the trail to provide the best experience for you. If you are not on the trail you have the option to warm up in our heated canvas winter tent or around the outdoor firepit, enjoying the beautiful central Saskatchewan winter outdoors! There is also a portable toilet on site.
