My husband and myself were on a road trip across the Rockies and had a stop over in Revelstoke. As it was October and too early to book the dogsledding trip, we booked the kennel tour with Eric. WOW what a treat. Eric gave us the full tour and introduced us to all 31 of his gorgeous friendly sled dogs, including some retirees. We got to cuddle so many dogs and even got to accompany Eric on a puppy walk through the forest. We were both in heaven. We learned all about breeding and training the sled dogs . Eric is so laid back and happy to answer any question, no matter how stupid they must have seemed. His dogs love him to bits and he adores them. If we are ever back this way again in winter we will be back to catch up with Eric and his pack, and take that sled trip. Thank you Eric.

We have lived, loved and adventured in and around Revelstoke for 30 years and must say our recent dogsled experience with Eric and his amazing canine team was fantastic! It was a perfect combination of adventure and adrenaline, all the while feeling able to trust the guide and his spirited dogs. we highly recommend this unforgettable experience with Revelstoke Dogsled Adventures!

We had the pleasure of dogsledding with this company. Eric the owner was engaging, friendly and informative. Very interactive. Felt safe the whole time. By far the best experience in revelations. Highly recommend.

We were all dressed in our warmest ski gear in preparation for the day outside. It had gotten down to -23°C overnight, so it was a chilly start to the day. Everyone cooperated and helped to get harnesses on the dogs & tied up to the sled. After a quick safety lesson, yelled out over the incredibly loud barking and baying of the sled dogs, we were off!

I was shocked by the sheer power and force of their pull, pushing me back, as they took off running on the trail. The strength as they pulled the huge wooden sled with me and my partner in the basket and our guide standing on the rails behind was just amazing.

You could not have wiped the cheezy grin off my face the whole time -- I was in heaven. Over hills, around corners, fast and slow, the experienced, happy, hard-working dogs love to run and it shows. On the way back you could see the dogs were in a groove and super relaxed, enjoying the run. It is amazing to see just how much the dogs LOVE to pull.

We all said our goodbyes to the dogs, getting lots of happy dog slurps on our cheeks before they were safely stowed away in their boxes. It was sad to say goodbye! Such an incredible adventure bonded me to the dogs. I am so thankful for them and their enthusiasm in this experience I will never forget.

We had visitors from Australia, so took them to do the most "Canadian" things while here. We had never dog sledded prior to this excursion and were so glad we did!

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Revelstoke Dogsled Adventures! The staff were friendly and competent. They did a wonderful job of providing a full experience, teaching us about the dogs, allowing us to harness the dogs and interact with them at length, our participation in preparing the sleds and dogs for the run was encouraged (but not expected) and really added to the experience. The dogs themselves were beyond amazing! All of them were so good natured and just loved to run! They all seemed very happy, healthy and well cared for. As soon as they sensed it was go time they were barking and jumping excitedly. Our guide, Sandy was a pleasure to chat with and had a wealth of knowledge about proper care and maintenance of the dog team which was so interesting! The trip itself lasted about 3 hours and when we returned we were treated to some hot chocolate and the dogs were given a bowl of food each as well. This was a very special experience with a great company! Highly recommend!

My friend and I went on a Sunday afternoon dog sledding adventure and loved every minute of it. We met at the Revelstoke Visitor Center and took a short trip out of town and got to ride with Thunder in the truck. We got to help harness them up and once the harnesses come out, they start going crazy. Frank, Arrow, Townley, Bow tie, and Thunder were some of our wonderful dogs-they have such cute, quirky personalities and love to run and receive praise. The guides were excellent and answered all our questions and let us take turns mushing. The hot chocolate at the end was very good since it started to get chilly. This is one of the coolest experiences I've ever done-do it, you will not regret it! :) I do recommend reserving a spot in advance-it fills up quickly.

It was my birthday present and me and my boyfriend we enjoyed every minute!!! We were picked up on previeusly agreed spot, went like 15 minutes out of town to a trail in the forest, but with a nice view on the mountains. Both guides were very helpful, funny and explained and showed us what they do while dogsleding. There was a lot of fun with those fury buddies (dogs :)) too, in general they were of mild temper, liked to be cuddled and used to be around strange people. Never seen such a blue eyes on dog! Also we could help put on dog harnesses and later take them off. During the trip, our guide Sandy told us all about history of sleding, his long experience with this sport and many other information and interesting stories. At the end - while feeling little cold - we were rewared with hot chocolate. :) All over an awesome experience, can recommend to everyone!

Thanks for a big experience, we came back with big smiles on our faces. The way, they planned this 18 km trip was perfect from the beginning till it ended. The staff was so engaged in making every minute of this trip interesting. They gave a lot of information about the dogs, the trip etc.it was a Big pleasure to experience how much the staff loves the dogs.
They made you feel safe and have fun at the same time. And they engaged you in what it takes going on a trip like this, from putting the harniss on the dogs and to make the dogs feel good. You have the Opportunity to sit in the sled and stand up, what ever you feel comfortable doing. Our guide Gabriel was a perfect guide and we enjoyed every moment. From booking and till we finished.
Big smiles from Christian and Susanne Carugati, from Denmark, on their first dogsledtrip.

The dogs were so energetic and sweet, and you could tell they were extremely well treated and given a lot of love by how happy they were. I was very impressed by how well the guides knew each specific dogs individual behavior and needs, and by how well-behaved the dogs were. This was definitely a highlight of my trip!
