We had a blast doing this at the end of January with our two boys (ages 5 and 9). My husband and nine year old had their own sled and my husband enjoyed being in command of the dogs. They are beautiful dogs and they look very well kept. Give them lots of love and encouragement on the trail and they'll work hard for you. We were lucky to have a very sunny (albeit rather chilly) day for this. I'd recommend this tour for families that enjoy being outside in the winter.

I've been thinking of doing this for ages and eventually booked it. Certainly not disappointed. Wanted to book an instructor for our sled but it wasn't necessary. On our day there was 16 sleds and the instructors are spread through the group so not having an instructor would have been ok.
From booking the tour, getting there on the bus, listening to the instructions of how to handle to dogs & sleds and the tour itself was great. All staff very courteous & professional.
We took lots of photos and also bought the professional photos at the end and it completed the whole experience for us.
I would certainly recommend this to others and this company - we were very well looked after.

Spent four days in Canmore BUT...........Highlight of our trip was Dog Sledding with Snowy Owl! It was fantastic, amazing, and those beautiful huskies.......it was so much fun..the staff, our guide was Ian (awesome guy)! Great experience in the snowy mountain trails and going across Spray Lakes was an experience! So many Huskies and fell I love with all them, especially Motörhead ❤️❤️❤️❤️ All the dogs are happy and love everyone! My daughter and I had a wonderful time and want to go in the summer to see the kennels and the pupppies.....recommend to everyone, even children can experience this adventure. They also rent out proper clothing for a small fee, we took UGGS....ahhh no! rented good boots for $10........Cya in the summer Snowy Owl
