Dog-sledding and Mushing Experience, Jasper

Dog-sledding and mushing experience with campfire lunch

On this immersive dogsledding experience, you’ll cover over 20 km (12.5 miles) through the undisturbed and peaceful landscape of Valemount, BC, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.

You’ll be picked up by a driver from your hotel in Jasper, who will transport you for 90 minutes to the dogsledding site, stopping briefly along the way to take in the views of Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies. When you arrive at the site, you’ll be introduced to your team of dogs and be given a safety demonstration and a mushing technique briefing by one of the experienced guides. For 10 km (6 miles), you can enjoy the fresh mountain air and scenery from the comfort of a dog sled (or from the back, if you’ve opted not to steer the sled yourself).

At the end of the trail, your guides will cook a hearty lunch over an open campfire, and serve hot apple cider and homemade sweet treats, while you warm yourself up and take photos of the Alaskan huskies. After lunch, you’ll embark on the journey back to the start of the trail, where the dogs will be given a well-deserved lunch of chicken broth.
