This is a true adventure and a great reason to look forward to winter! These day trips are an excellent introduction to the exciting experience of dog sledding. The dog sled trips start at the kennels in Maynooth, where you will meet up with an eager team of Huskies who will pull you though some of the finest forests in Ontario!
This is a very interactive trip – you will help harness the dogs, hook them up the sleds, and learn how to issue the commands, such as…”Hike Up”! Off you will race as the dogs strain at their harnesses, happy to be running once again. After they settle down into their natural pace, you will steer them into the forest trails. On the flat parts of the trail you can relax with the wind blowing in your face, and watch the majestic forest silently glide by!
From the Eco-Lodge you will make a short drive to Maynooth (15-20 minute drive) and travel 1 person per 3-4 dog team sled. You spend your time gliding along the twisting trails, eventually ending back up at your starting point. Guests will have the opportunity to unharness their team and say their good byes before heading back home. This is definitely an experience you won’t want to miss!
