Age & Experience: These don't matter. People ages 6-86 have enjoyed our trips. Most of our guests have never dogsledded before (and some have never seen snow!). No experience is needed.
Fitness & Health: Dogsledding accommodates persons of virtually any fitness level. However, if you are seriously out-of-shape (for example, if you find walking a mile to be exhausting), then our trips may be too challenging. If you have basic fitness (that is, if you could walk 2-3 miles without much difficulty), then you'd enjoy any of our lodge-to-lodge trips. If you're moderately fit or better (and could handle, for example, a 5-mile walk), then our camping trips would be a fit for you as well. If you have concerns about your fitness, please feel free to discuss them with us. We're happy to accommodate any dietary requests and various health conditions and disabilities.
Group Size (Singles, 3-Somes & Groups): Most of guests come with a friend or family member, but we're happy to accommodate singles on our 3- & 4-night "good" lodge trips and our camping trips. We can generally accommodate 3-somes on any trips and groups of 4 or more can book their own private custom trip

Our "Beginning" camping trips include as much dogsledding as our 4-night lodge trips, plus many more experiences. So if you're moderately fit, feeling adventurous and want to go for the "gusto," choose a camping trip. Age doesn't matter -- kids and seniors enjoy our camping trips as much as our lodge trips. Our "Advanced" trips are even more adventurous and involve skiing or snowshoeing in addition to dogsledding. Our Arctic trips rank somewhere between our "Beginning" and "Advanced" trips in terms of challenge. The dogsledding and camping logistics are similar to our "Beginning" trips but the arctic setting is, of course, vastly more remote & exotic.
Our lodge trips are compared in the chart below, followed by the dates and rates for all trips to help you choose the one that's best for you. Still not sure which trip to choose? Just call us: (218) 349-6128. If money is the issue, let us know if you can go "standby." We'll alert you to openings offered at a substantial discount if cancellations occur within a few weeks of a trip.
