Let us take you back 100 years in time!
Howling Dog Tours provides the opportunity for anyone (ages 2 and up) to partake in the traditional sled dog sport at their own comfort level. Immerse yourself totally and become a dog musher! Spend time on a spectacular mountain trail and build a unique bond with your team of Huskies.
Our all-inclusive packages provide return transportation from all major hotels in Banff and Canmore, snacks and hot beverage, and personalized service with one guide per sled! Teams of 5 to 7 friendly Alaskan, Siberian, & Seppala Huskies take you through the Canadian wilderness of the Spray Lakes Provincial Park for the experience of a lifetime! Come howl with us and meet experienced Iditarod and Yukon Quest dogs!
All tours include the option to help harness the dogs, hook up the team, and drive the team - with the help of your experienced and friendly guide. We are the only company in the Bow Valley who guarantees one guide per sled for the customer service, safety, and security our guests and dogs deserve! Enjoy the scenery and reward the dogs with a cookie at the end of the tour. Be as interactive as you want!
Our rates are based on two adult prices per sled. If you are a group of 2 we do not add anyone to your sled, and we do not charge extra to keep it at 2. For families with small children we are able to accommodate 2 adults, and 2 children, as long as the children are age 2-5, and the adults are average size. Groups of 3 may be allowed if there are children or youth as part of the 3, and they do not exceed our height/weight maximum. Please contact our office for more details.
Please be dressed and ready to go in warm winter gear (ski suits etc.), especially foot and head gear. We do not accept anyone in street shoes or running shoes. Howling Dog Tours reserves the right to turn away improperly dressed participants; no refund will be issued. Contact our office for more information.
Enjoy many photo opportunities and the only traditional way to see the Rocky Mountains in the winter!
Participants will be required to sign a waiver before departure; anyone under the age of 18 years must have a parent or guardian sign.
