This company really knows how to show its guests and its dogs a great time. I chose Snowy Owl because after looking at the other dog sled companies running now in the Banff/Canmore region Snowy Owl seemed to be the most authentic and experienced of the lot. This was our first time dog sledding and having travelled all the way... More

Experience of a life time. This company is outstanding in their service and love of these dogs. Did the 2 hour tour as the 4 hour one was sold out. It was long enough to have an amazing time, but if you can afford longer - go for it! Alex our guide was fantastic and informative, and encouraging . Our... More

My boyfriend and I recently did this tour and it was nothing short of outstanding! What an incredible, unique experience. The dogs are treated well, love treats and belly rubs, and love, love, LOVE to run. There is a small bit of running yourself involved when the sled goes uphill, so be aware of that. (They don't make the dogs... More

My friends and I from Australia had the most amazing day with the staff and dogs. Every single dog is treated with love and we loved experiencing their enthusiasm for what they do

What a great experience, our guide Caleb was knowledgeable and friendly and the dogs were totally lovable and friendly as well. Spectacular scenery and when the dogs turned it on it was exhilarating to be driving the sled. Don't miss an opportunity to drive the team...its awesome.

We booked with Snowy Owl as this was the operator that would allow us, as a family of 3 - 2 adults & 1 x 6yr old - to ride in a sled together as part of the Powder Hound Express tour. In order to stay together, we has to drive the sled ourselves which we were slightly apprehensive about... More

My wife and I took a Valentine's Day dog sled tour with Snowy Owl and it was one of the best experiences of our lives !!! They came and got us in Banff and took us to Canmore so we didn't have to drive. My wife did not have snow pants so she was able to rent them from the... More

If you want to drive a dog sled in the Banff area book early. We were lucky to find a spot open during the week we were there. The two hour dog sled trip went by fast but every bit was magical. My boyfriend and I were paired up with a young woman. She drove the sled the first half... More

Great gear, friendly dogs and staff well looked after with a hot cider at the end. Seems short time, but can run with the dogs, so an hour in the driver's seat is enough. Great day out, with a good crew, definately worth it

We (my husband and I) booked the 8hr 'Spirit of the Dog - Dream Catcher' tour. Firstly I would like to comment on the communication aspect of the booking, it was all completed via email (due to us living in the UK) emails were always responded to quickly and clearly, the company provided efficient - well organised admin service for...
