One of our most popular guided Winter Adventures is Dog Sledding. Adults and children alike will enjoy the benefits gained from a dog sledding excursion. Our dogs are authentic sled dogs – our male, Naugh-Tue, and our female, Natasha, both come to us from our Iditarod friends in Alaska. Together with their pups, which were raised here in our home kennel, Naugh-Tue and Natasha show visitors a part of the Vermont that most people don’t get to see. Our extensive experience and love for the sport will make your adventure with us an authentic and exciting dogsledding experience.
Learn more about our various Dog Sledding Adventures below.
