It was a bucket list adventure that was so much fun! The guides and staff taught us everything to mush our own sled! The dogs were so cute and sweet and happy to run. We got lots of husky kisses, and heard them sing the song of their people.

We had an absolute blast on the sled dog tour. Fantastic experience through the ice and snow. The control of the dogs was incredible. Even loved being tipped over. Ha ha.

This was an amazing experience. We did the self drive and I am so glad we did! It is apparent that the dogs are loved by the guides. The guides make sure that you know what to expect throughout the adventure too. This is a must do!!

What a phenomenal experience! From the moment we arrived we were greeted with nothing but friendliness, experience and knowledge. We self-guided our sled but our guide, Shane, was incredible. He was very supportive, encouraging and made us feel very comfortable and safe. Our guide dogs, Willow and Pixie, were also amazing. A special shout out to shy little Jinx! She stole our hearts!

This was an awesome experience. Didn’t know what to expect, but no disappointment at all. Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. I am scared of dogs, but did not feel uneasy at anytime. Dogs were very friendly, especially our lead dogs, Poison and Jaguar, and a big shout out to our guide, Daryl. Only one tip, wear thick socks, or even better, hire the boots.

We enjoyed a two hour two person self driven dog sled tour today and it was awesome.
Poncho drove us from Canmore to the tour site safely and with a few added jokes.
Upon arrival we met Bennie who introduced us to the team of dogs and gave us all the info we needed for an amazing day.
Shane was our guide ahead of us who was very helpful and gave great instructions along the way. Our lead dogs Mortisha and Rasca were so sweet and really did all the work. Both my husband and I enjoyed driving as we were able to switch half way. I want to thank the whole crew for making this an amazing experience. I would definitely recommend this tour and be I think the four hour tour would be amazing too. Thanks Bennie, Shane, Mortisha and Rasca. .

This is one tick in our family bucketlist and Snowy Owl Dog Tour made it the most incredible experience!

First class service from Booking process to the day of the tour. Everything is so organised and handled with such professionalism. The actual tour is the highlight, all the crew are so friendly, professional and helpful. They have crew posted in many areas along the trail, each hard turn and every climb, a helping hand is there to ensure our safety. Main thing for me in chosing Snowy Owl Tour is their dog well being and condition. They are well looked after, healthy and energetic. The crew handle them so well.

Our original booking was cancelled due to extremely cold weather and they had no other availability, I had an option to book somewhere but when I saw reviews about dog condition, I rather not to have a tour than being to one that don't look after their dogs as well as Snowy Owl.

Snowy Owl for me is the first Dog Sled Tour on Canmore, top class and I highly recommend it to all. THANK YOU to all the crew on our Tour today (23/12/22)- you are all amazing!

Thank you #SnowyOwlDogtour. You are first class!

A day we will never forget. The site is magestic. The guides were excellent, the dogs were so strong and so happy to give us a good ride. We also had the chance to get a lot of cuddles with them.

What an amazing experience! We got to play with dogs, drive a dogsled, play with dogs, ride in the sled, play with dogs, warm up by a fire. Oh, and okay with dogs. (I think the dogs were having as much fun as we were.) It’s so wonderful to see a group that cares so very much about all their pups, and treats them so well. Absolutely book this adventure with this company.
