Experience Dog Sledding on a Bog Tour
Dog sledding is a magical experience that our talented staff is proud to share with you! Since 1993, our friendly Alaskan husky sled dogs have introduced thousands of people to dog sledding with wagging tails and unmatched enthusiasm.
You’ll see firsthand what it takes for these huskies to pull your sled on a five- to eight-mile run after we take you on a tour of our kennel to learn about the dogs, sleds and mushing equipment.
So be ready to experience a thorough introduction to riding as a passenger and driving the team and take part in harnessing and hooking up your sled dog team. We’ll then head down the trail with an experienced guide and explore the beauty of Island Lake. You can try driving the team if conditions allow or just relax in the sled and enjoy the ride. We’ll entertain you with stories about the natural history of the area. And finally, you’ll give the dogs treats and water as you help bring them back to their houses at the kennel!
