Below, we’ll cover a little bit about the history of dog sledding, as well as why it’s one of the most exciting ways to see the Rockies! Read on to learn more!

What is Dog Sledding

As a long-standing Canadian pastime, as well as a historical method of transportation, dog sledding has been a wintertime staple since at least the early 1800s. Once an essential part of the fur trade and delivery, today, dog sledding remains a thrilling sport that’s full of fun and exploration for everyone to enjoy! Race across the snow pulled by a highly skilled team of working dogs and experience the full beauty of Banff National Park in a truly unforgettable way. For the 2022-2023 season, Banff Adventures offers the following options for dog sledding excursions:

Unleash The Musher

The Unleash the Musher tour takes riders through Spray Lakes Provincial Park and showcases jaw-dropping natural features along the way. Our guides make sure you have plenty of ways to be an active participant, including giving you the chance to help harness the dogs and drive the sled!

Great Divide

The Great Divide tour is an exhilarating 1.5 hr adventure along the Continental Divide in Lake Louise. As a world-famous destination for skiing and boarding, see the lesser-known side of Lake Louise and snap Instagram-worthy photos along the way! With several picture-perfect stops along the way, you’re sure to find yourself in awe surrounded by the beauty of the mountains.

Mountain Musher

Our Mountain Musher tour takes place in the heart of K-Country in Spray Lakes Provincial Park. Follow along narrow trails and look through the trees, and then, once your trek is through, warm up with some delicious hot chocolate or hot cider!

What to Know

If you want to make sure you don’t miss out on dog sledding this season, it’s crucial to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. These tours are our most popular holiday adventure and fill up fast! It’s also important to remember to dress warmly for this tour. Sledding not only keeps you close to the elements but being pulled at high speeds means you will get wet and have to deal with windchill. For your safety and comfort, it is essential to dress appropriately in goggles, gloves, proper winter boots, etc. For a beginner’s guide on what to expect, we recommend our cheat sheet here.
