Absolutely fantastic, unforgettable experience. Easily booked on their website and helpful email contact afterwards. Had to make our own way to their office, which took a bit of research, but once there everything was very smooth. The warnings they make out of what to wear was more for those doing self driven sleds rather than those doing a guide driven sled. The staff are really friendly and experienced. The dogs are lovely and all so eager. We got a chance to meet all the dogs they had chosen for the day before being allocated our team. Would have been good to go a bit faster on the flat, straights bits but each guide driven sled had a couple of self drive sleds behind so couldn't go too fast. The Powderhound Express was the perfect length for first time dog sledders. Would totally recommend this experience. It's an absolute must.

This experience was fantastic from start to finish. Easy booking and helpful contact after, easy to find office with a very entertaining bus driver to the site. The bus drive is about 30 mins, with great views on the way, so the whole experience lasts a good 3 hours. The sledge staff are friendly and experienced with lots of help and advice. We had a self drive sledge that both my adult kids drove - they loved it. Driving for the first half of the trip is challenging with the section after the lake a little easier. This trip is a must for all visitors to the region.

Hands down our favorite activity during our winter trip to the Banff area! We booked a sled for 2 adults + 1 teen and the adults were able to take turns driving the dog sled during the tour. The scenery was truly breathtaking. We loved our guides & dogs. After the tour, we had time to pet and feed the dogs on our team. You could see the mutual love between the dogs and all of the guides. The Powderhound Express was the perfect length for first time dog sledders. 11/10 recommend!

This was our favorite thing we did on our Banff trip! The staff was helpful and they even have warmer jackets and pants if you need to rent them. I did! The guide was so informative and made the time a blast! The dogs were clearly so happy to be doing what they love and then were so cute to eagerly get pets and praise halfway and at the end. I’ve been snowmobiling before and like this so much better since there’s no motor noise or odor. It was such a cool way to experience nature! Highly recommend!!!

We had a ride of a lifetime…it was My 16 year old daughter’s Christmas present, but really it was a gift for my husband and I too!! It was organized. We loved spending time with the dogs. We never felt afraid… the dogs were well behaved. It was the highlight of our 10 day trip! It was costly, but worth every penny! I HIGHLY recommend this company and adventure! We did the two hour tour!

We did the 2 hour "Powder Puff" experience last week and had a blast. We went in a single sled and each took a turn Mushing and riding in the sled. It is super easy and I would highly recommend doing it that way. The scenery was gorgeous, the dogs were friendly and energetic, and the guides were over the top to make your trip a memorable one.

Snowy Owl is an extremely well run business. everything is timed well and it is very obvious that they care for their dogs. We are glad we chose them and would love to go back to do a longer run if we return to Canmore in the winter.

Thank you for the 5 star review Rebel! It is super impotant that our guests go away with an experience to remamber, so we're glad to hear that is what you had. In ensuring this happens we like to have a timely schedule so thank you for noticing this as well as the care and love we give to our husky heroes! :) See you on the trail for our 4 hour tour next time!

Once again Snowy Owls does not disappoint. We have done the dog sledding with them 4 times now. They are professional and the dogs are amazing. Our guide Hana was very helpful and took great care of us and the dogs. 💕
