It must be nice to sit in a warm cocoon, in a sled and enjoy the sounds of dog-team rushing you through the spectacular landscape of our province’s Backcountry. The speed, the sparkling snow, and quiet forest takes over and you just surrender to the calm feeling of peace. Or you may choose the fast paced outing with an experience masher and find out about the rush that everyone else is talking about.
The choice is yours, the possibilities are endless, Ontario trails and forests await you. Dog Sledding transportation was used by Native Peoples thousands of years prior to the 1908, when Dog sledding became an official sport in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Most popular dog breed used for this way of travel is, to this day, the beautiful Husky.

It can take many years to train them, but once they learn their job in a team, the owner’s rewards are tremendous.
