Dogsledding

Lake Louise, Banff National Park

Glide swiftly across a fresh dusting of snow, where the only sounds are the soft thuds of husky paws and the jingle of their collars. This dog sledding adventure lets you combine exploring the stunning winter landscapes of Lake Louise while travelling by the power of these beautiful creatures.  You might see these lean race style dogs appearing in 300 mile distance races in the Yukon, Alaska, Saskatchewan and Montana.  All sleds are led by a guide, but you do have the opportunity to try driving the sled yourself.

Canmore, Spray Lakes

Venture off the beaten path to the town of Canmore, where we will take you on a dog-sledding adventure through the awe-evoking vistas of the Spray Lakes. Snuggle into the blankets and enjoy the ride as the furry four-legged team pulls you along pristine mountain trails with your experienced guide.  You may have seen these “Hollywood” style dogs in the movies like Snow Dogs, that was filmed in Canmore.  They’re cute and fluffy, but still a powerhouse team that love to pull.  Option for guest driven sleds or Instructor driven sleds.

There is no dogsledding directly in the Town of Banff.
