What to Expect on Your Winter Dogsled Tour


General Information About Our Ely, MN and BWCA Sled Dog Trips


with Chilly Dogs


Once you arrive at our kennel, you will be welcomed into our lodge to start getting ready for your trip. Your safety and comfort are our primary concerns, and, for those reasons, we are prepared to outfit you from head to toe, if need be, with quality items from our well-stocked Rental Department. Trust us to recommend appropriate layers designed for comfy warmth and protection from extreme elements.

Next, you’ll love our "Meet-the-Dogs" session, followed by our thorough orientation, during which our head guide will teach you all you need to know to have a fun and safe dog sledding adventure. Then we’ll hook-up the dog teams, and, together with our guides, you'll take off down the trail for an exciting journey through a land of enchantment and winter wonder.
