Experience what it is like to be a real musher. As you go down the lake, you will see the terrain change and ice flows appear that make you feel like you are out in the middle of the arctic tundra. As you loop around, you will see some spectacular views down the valley to the south end of the Spray Lakes.

As with all our tours, we start with approx. 30 min of orientation on dog sledding, dog handling, and equipment. You will then have an opportunity to meet the dogs and assist the guides with harnessing the dogs and setting up the teams. Once out on the trail, you will have the opportunity to drive the sled with the assistance of our qualified guide or you can just sit back, relax, & enjoy the views down the Spray Valley.

Once back at the trailhead, you will have some time to thank the dogs and give them treats, warm up in our tent by the fire and enjoy some hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies from the Mad Dog Cafe & Market.

  • Transportation

    The only way to get to the Spray Lakes is to drive yourself. There is no public transportation available into this area. As it is a secondary gravel road to the trailhead, we ask that vehicles have a min of front wheel drive and good all-season tires. If nervous about driving in winter conditions, we can provide a lead car to the site from the Mad Dog Cafe in Dead Man's Flats. It would take approx 2.25 hrs from Calgary, 35 min from Canmore, and 1.25 hours from Banff. See our "Map Page" for more info.

  • Small Group Sizes, Real Adventure

    There are a number of dog sledding companies in the Canadian Rockies to choose from. At Mad Dogs & Englishmen Expeditions, we believe in providing an authentic experience, with small group sizes, usually with a maximum of 5 sleds unless more are required for larger groups. By choosing us, you will experience a more personable, relaxed, real adventure... Experience what mushing is really like!
