Treat yourself to a 1 hour dog sled ride, 2 hours or more and come live the magic of this ancestral sport in the heart of our beautiful forest.
The "total time" expressed in the following subsections is variable according to several factors. The "sleding times" refer to the time spent on sled, in the path, excluding the time of preparations.
Whether you have already experienced this sport or not, an introduction to dogs, safety instructions, sled driving, dog handling and the answer to all your questions will be done before departure.
The dogsledding is an extreme sport... for all !
Sled driving is not an obvious thing and dogs will keep their speed (and speed up) in the forest, in the curves and other dangerous places ... The practice of this sport requires good reflexes and good nerves. You should also know that it will require a lot of physical effort from you, perhaps equivalent to an ice hockey game.
If you are not sure if you can drive your sled, to avoid accidents and injuries, you have the option, for an additional fee of $ 50, to be driven by one of our guides.
Wearing a helmet (snowboard type, or hockey) and glasses (type of ski or safety) is highly recommended and mandatory for children. You have them: bring them! Otherwise, we have it for you (free).
Unfortunately, our sleds have a load limit per customer equivalent to approximately 275 lbs (125kg) of body weight.
The child rate is determined by a weight of less than 100 lbs (45 kg) and not by age. Adolescents usually count for adults.
Children or teenagers wishing to drive their team can usually do so from the age of twelve (12) depending on their sporting abilities.
Despite any phone agreement, it's at the time of preparation that my guides and I decide if these young people can actually drive or not. They then enter the pricing category: adult.
