Dogsledding Tours with Mad Dogs & Englishmen

Dogsled in the Majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains...

We offer a wide range of packages from 1½ hour tours to multi-day adventures. Whether you are interested in either experiencing dogsledding from the warm confines of the sled while taking in the views or prefer to ride the back of the sled where you can experience dogsledding like a real musher, we have a package for you. We can cater to individuals, families, or corporate groups.

Mad Dogs and Englishmen currently teach the British Army on their winter adventure training program combining both ski-joring and dog sledding while camping out on the trail. Mad Dogs have used their experience here to create some unique programs for individual adventurers or corporate groups with team building as a focus.

Custom packages are available. For example, evening trips are an exhilarating ride but when set up for a full moon night they really are an an experience all there own. Looking for a unique place to pop the big question? Imagine asking that special person to marry you with the majestic snow-clad mountains as the backdrop and your very own team of dogs to help you celebrate when she says yes!

Meeting Location / Directions
Our booking office and departure of our tours is at the Junction House Cafe & Market in Dead Man's Flats. More Information
