We offer you dog sledding at its best! It is a complete hands-on experience that allows you to interact closely with real huskies. You will find our beautiful white blue-eyed huskies at the Arctic Chalet where your tour will start.
Here is what some happy customers had to say:
“I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the dog sledding experience this past Sunday. Going through the pictures and videos makes me smile. Your adventure is well organized and well equipped, the network of trails is well maintained, the dogs were well groomed, and the whole tour was, well... AMAZING (and well priced ;), I greatly appreciate the deal)! It blew my expectations out of the water and I had waaaaay too much fun. Enjoying the outdoors with your amazing staff, dogs, and friendly company was some of the most fun I've had since moving up to Inuvik. I can tell how much you love what you do and I think it makes all the difference. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and those I meet flying around the north.”
Experience of a lifetime!
Here is what you can expect when you arrive at the Arctic Chalet for dog sledding. To begin with we will make sure that you are geared up to stay warm and comfortable during your tour. You will most likely be outfitted in a pair of warm moose hide mukluks designed for being comfortable and warm in the cold. Then you will sign a standard outdoor adventure waiver followed by a short briefing session. You will learn the basic commands for turning right and left. Then we will show you how to control speed with the brakes and we will give you other tips that will make your dog sledding tour safe and enjoyable.
will then meet your lead dog and possibly help to hook up a few
of your team dogs. Now you are ready...."
Your team will be following our lead team out onto the lake behind the Chalet and into the Arctic wilderness. You will travel on our own trail system most of the time over some gentle hills, across several frozen lakes, through spruce forests and through a lovely stand of birch trees on a little ridge. Sometimes we head over to the Mackenzie River and through the winding little creek that leads back to the warmth of the Chalet.
During our standard tour, you will have experienced the thrill of completely guiding your own small dog team of four to six dogs from start to finish. On our unique trail system you do not have to always follow the team ahead of you. During the run there are many opportunities to turn your dogs onto other parallel trails and the dog teams remain relatively close to the lead team so that help is available whenever it is needed.
As many say, "It's an experience of a lifetime."
Because of some of the risks involved in even the safest dog sledding operations our clients must be prepared to sign a release of liability agreement.
