This is our ultimate full day tour. A full day of non-stop dogsledding!
You start at 9:00 am at the trailhead for approx. ½ hour of orientation. Then after assisting the guides with setting up the sleds, you hit the trail. First you head out over the frozen lake then up into the trees to navigate an exciting trail around Mt Nestor to your first rest stop at Mt Nester Viewpoint.
After a snack and warm drink, you will then continue South down the lake, past Buller Creek & Smutz Creek, following the South shore to our day camp below Isolation Ridge.
Here you will enjoy a hot campfire lunch prepared for you by the Mad Dog Cafe & Market and have a chance to warm up by the fire, enjoying the views SW down Bryant Creek and W to the flanks of Fortune Mountain.
Once back on the trail, you will loop around the Frozen Islands, going up and down frozen ice rifts, to connect to the trail back to Driftwood.
This tour requires a reasonable level of physical fitness and stamina.
Transportation is included from our booking office at The Mad Dog Cafe & Market in Dead Man's Flats. Hotel pick up from local Canmore hotels can be arranged.
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 3 sleds unless more are required for larger groups. By choosing us, you will experience a more personable, relaxed, real adventure, where you get to see and experience what mushing is really like.
