Overview

We are a small family-owned and operated Sled Dog Touring company running dogsled tours out of Canmore, AB in the Kananaskis Provincial Park adjacent to Banff National Park. We have been in operation for 15 years with the British Army our main client. We run 2-hour, Half-Day, and Full-Day. This year we have opened our Kennel for tours during the summer season so we can offer family-dog adventures year round. We specialize in smaller groups and encourage involvement so you can experience dogsledding like a real musher.

What an amazing morning we had today. We took our 5 year old grandsons on a guide driven Husky Dreamcatcher Sled Tour. You transport yourself to the beginning point, which was easy to find and meant young children were happy in their own vehicle. No...More

Had dinner with another couple and tried several items. Very interesting flavours and spices. Service was very good, some items were quite hot but tasty.

Did the morning tour through the woods. It was a blast, in a peaceful and nature-enjoying sort of way! A late-season run has its challenges - a bit icy and slushy in spots - but also benefits because the weather was fantastic (cool but not...More
