Based out of the beautiful Boundary Ranch, deep in the Kananaskis Valley, Mad Dogs and Englishmen will take you on a one of a kind dogsledding tour!

The tour will begin with a brief instruction and then you will take off on your journey through the forest surrounding the Ranch aboard your Dog Sled. The first stop will give you a chance to explore Teepees in a Teepee encampment while learning about how dogs and horses have played a role in shaping Alberta’s History and landscape. Roast a marshmallow over the campfire and enjoy a steaming cup of hot chocolate with home baked cookies. Deer are often encountered on this tour and occasionally moose or elk. Wolf and cougar tracks are common as well as Snowshoe Hare and Coyote signs.

Once back on your sleds, you will loop around to see the Bison in the Ranch's Buffalo Viewing Paddock. Here you will have close-up viewing of the resident herd with the Bull and his cows, along with this years calves. The Trappers Cabin, just up the trail, offers a little history of the Kananaskis valley where you will see artifacts from bygone trapping days! Claw marks from our summer visitors, the Grizzly bears, are also pointed out. From here, with the dogs raring to go, you will head off for your final leg of the tour back to Boundary Ranch.

The program is approx. 1.5 hours in length with approx. 35 min dogsledding included plus two stops along the way.
