They'll lend you warm clothing and let you drive your own dogsled team! Not as tough as it sounds, and you're well-supervised. A singular experience. Highly recommended. Oh, and if you're looking for a great pet, they have retired dogs available for adoption.

Frank Turner and his crew offer the finest sled dog experience anywhere in Canada's north. His staff are among the most knowledgeable I have encountered and their love for the dogs shows in how they are cared for.

This experience isn't what I had expected. The service was mediocre at best, they were disorganized and I felt they charged too much. We tried a couple places like this and the others didn't disappoint.
