How many people can go on one sled?
We usually configure 2 adults per sled (one driver, one passenger). Children under 7 years old go with the guides for safety reasons. Children between 0 and 2 years old also go with the guides but must sit on a parent’s laps. Configuration also depends on the weather and snow conditions.
Is it hard on the dogs?
These dogs are working dogs who are bred to pull and run in a cold environment. They are trained and fed properly to be able to do it well. They like pulling a sled as much as a retriever likes fetching a stick. This will become obvious just before the ride starts. Feel free to ask your guide anything you want about sled dogs… learning about the dogs is an interesting part of the experience.
Do we drive our own sled?
Yes, participants that are 16 years old and over will have a chance to drive the sled, depending on the conditions.
Can we visit the kennel?
Yes, you get to visit the kennel and the puppies (seasonal).
Is it hard?
This activity can be strenuous for drivers. As a driver you are part of the team, so when the climbs are steep the driver will have to get off and walk, jog or even help push the sled.
