OUR DOG SLED TRIPS


❄ The Snowy Owl Run—Our Most Popular Trip

This half-day tour is suitable for ALL ages and multiple fitness levels. We begin with a totally fun, “hands-on” visit with our friendly Alaskan Huskies. You’ll learn about the breed and hear some of the incredible back stories of our remarkable sled dogs. We’ll provide a comprehensive sled-driving orientation just prior to the exhilarating launch of the dog teams. When you return, relax with some hot chocolate and goodies, visit with a guide, and take part in a brief educational component of our program. You’ll have time to peruse the treasures and exclusive Chilly Dogs apparel available in our Gift Shop before heading home.

Your three-hour overall experience includes an exciting hour of dogsledding covering 8 miles of beautiful, wilderness trails. This unique adventure is sure to be the highlight of your trip to Ely!

❄ The Backcountry Trek—Our More Challenging Half-Day Tour

This trip is designed for groups of more physically active people that are looking for a longer dogsledding experience. As with our Snowy Owl Run, you’ll participate in all the same pre-trip activities that set our program apart: a meet-and-greet with our Alaskan Huskies, and a thorough sled-driving orientation prior to the exciting launch. Then it’s an unforgettable, 2-hour, 15+ mile dog sledding experience through the wild backcountry on rugged trails, over hills, and through the boreal woodlands of northeastern Minnesota. Afterward, it’s time to warm up with some refreshments and a fireside chat with one of our professional guides, as you hear stories of the trail and learn more about our amazing dogs and the lives they lead.
