Dogsled Trips

Welcome to Wintergreen!

As the nation's oldest (35 years!) & most well established dogsled center, Wintergreen offers many dogsled vacation options.

Whether you’re thinking about a dogsled experience in Colorado, Alaska or anywhere, consider our Minnesota Boundary Waters wilderness.  It ranks among the “Top 50” most scenic places in the world.

We're happy to help you select your ideal option. It's simple: call us toll free 877-753-3386 anytime & we'll guide you to your ideal winter vacation. For all ages, no experience or special fitness needed, warm clothing & boots available in all sizes....


1) Would you like a lodge-based trip (with your own bedroom each night) or would you prefer a more adventurous experience that includes tent-camping on a few nights?

2) How many are you? We're happy to accommodate singles, pairs & 3-somes. Groups of 4 or more can book their own private cabin, or join other registrants in a larger cabin.

3) Do you prefer evening private time, or do you enjoy fireplace socializing with like-minded travelers? Our "Good," "Better," & "Best" lodge-based trip options accommodate those preferences....and the number of guests & our package pricing vary accordingly.

4) When do you want to go? We offer trips from early December to late March.  Early & late season typically offers more moderate temps while mid season offers best snow conditions.
