This is one of the most unique experiences of my life...and believe me I'm adventurous. The incredible organization, help, and professional manner that Carmen display was unmatched. The trip went off without a hitch and she managed to keep our large group organized. Craig was there to check in and help the team on the tough parts of the trail. He was nice, friendly, and you could tell he loves what he does for a living. The dogs were well taken care of and easy to fall in love with right away. If you do this trip, you will be talking about it for years to come. Claire and Lucas were incredible guides. They were both extremely helpful, knowledgeable, friendly I can't say enough. Thank you for taking us through this adventure. Until the next time........

We had the experience of a lifetime dog sledding in Algonquin Park. Carmen and Craig were so kind and informative from the first day we signed up, and that carried through the entire trip. The dogs are so sweet and well taken care of, and we had the best time caring for our crew over the weekend. The camp was in such a remote and beautiful location, and we felt like we had the winter camping experience that we have always wanted, while remaining comfortable and well fed. The dog sledding was the highlight of the trip, and we will never forget the adventurous rides through the park. We would highly recommend and would do another trip with Snow Forest in the future!

This is an amazing experience. Just returned from the 3 day 2 night dogsledding adventure and had a wonderful time. Our guides, Claire and Lucas were amazing, skilled, confident and fun. The organizers/owners were also amazing. The dogs were healthy, happy, and very energetic. They were well looked after, had their own dog houses and were so sociable and lovable! We had excellent weather which helped the experience and sleeping in the tents on cots was better than expected. What was really fun was learning how to take care of the dogs, feed and water them, massage them after runs, and harness and drive them as a team. We had a couple of epic wipeouts due to our inexperience but the dogs and our guides looked after us. Our small group of 8 became a family for 3 days and we spent every moment outdoors except when sleeping. Algonquin park in the winter is a magical place. The wolves howled at night and the dogs let them know that we were at the camp. Overall, a fantastic experience that I would highly recommend. It is exhausting. You do have to run up hills to help the dogs so they don't overheat. We were not in great shape but we managed to to do this. Thanks again, Snow Forest Adventures!

Expertly planned from beginning to end. This trip exceeded what we were hoping for, the guides were friendly and knowledgeable, there was plenty of good food, we were warm in our tent, despite -31 temperatures. But it’s all about the dogs, and they are amazing. They are obviously well cared for and everything revolves around them, which is so good to see. We cannot recommend this trip highly enough if you are prepared to work to get the most out of it. Enjoy!

My son and I had an amazing 3 day trip! The guides (Nick and Travis) did a great job teaching us about sledding and caring for the dogs. They also prepared delicious meals which were safe for my son who has multiple food allergies. It was so beautiful to have the dogs take us through the park in deep snow. The dogs were definitely the highlight of the trip and getting to know their unique personalities was so fun. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone! It’s a unique, winter experience that should not be missed!

My husband and I have been dog sledding before, but Snow Forest Adventures is by far the best! Wonderful people to work with, great communications, before, during and after! The guides were so amazing too. Knowledgeable, friendly and a lot of fun.
The dogs are so friendly and clearly well cared for, right down to the doggie massages they get after working so hard. Love it!
Camp was great! Almost glamping, and we were so well taken care of. No massages, but there was wine, great food and brie!! Sign me up for next year!

If you love animals and being outside, and love an amazing hands on working holiday, than this is the adventure for you!!

Bucket List CHECK!!!

Magical.
My husband, our 13-year-old daughter, our 10-year-old son and I went on the 3 day, 2 night dog sledding trip in Algonquin Provincial Park. The scenery was just gorgeous. The camp was extremely comfortable. The guides were knowledgeable, confident, communicative and friendly. They took time to explain things to my kids, ensuring that they had a great time. And the dogs... We fell in love with the dogs. Well cared for, hard-working sweethearts. It was hard to say goodbye to some of our favourties. I would highly recommend this trip. Well worth it!

I did the 3days 2night dogsled trip in Alconquin. It was amazing. Pre trip communication was great answering all my questions. The actual trip was better then all my expectations! The guides Nic and Travis were great. With the proper gear (I rented the boots,parka,sleeping bag and pad) I forgot all about it being cold! The dogs are really priority number 1 and they are loved and well taken care of. Awesome experience! Highly recommend it!

Omgosh! What can we say! It was AMAZING to experience the outdoors in Algonquin Park with Amy, Emily and of course the beautiful dogs!
We sledded for a couple of hours to the camp. Once there we took care of our team. We really got to know the dogs.
They are so loved and so well taken care of.
The 2 days flew by.
We highly reccomend Snow Forest Adventures.
Tony and I will be back!
