Experience the thrill of driving your own sled team of Husky dogs in northern Wisconsin! Dip through snowy valleys, and wind through woodland trails in the wake of wagging tails, flapping tongues, and pure joy.
Ladies, take a trek up to Northern Wisconsin for an extended weekend of outdoor winter adventures on the snowy coast of the mighty Lake Superior. You will feel like an artic explorer as we discover the Northwoods by dogsled and snowshoes.
"This is the real deal! " -- That what our partners have to say about their dogsledding tours.
Their woman-owned and operated kennel is comprised of 42 Seppala Siberian Huskies which are direct descendants of Togo and Balto who helped deliver the life saving serum to the children of Nome during the outbreak of Diptheria in 1925.
From start to finish, participants will be involved in all stages of mushing. Every trip begins with participants meeting each dog and learning about them. Then, your guides will teach you how to harness dogs and hook up the teams. Once everyone, and every dog is ready, we head out on some of the most beautiful forested trails in Northern Wisconsin.
Not just a walk in the woods.
Led by a local naturalist and guide, participants will take on two totally different worlds by snowshoe. An introductory forest hike at sunset will immerse you into a wintery. On a separate adventure, participants will walk three miles on frozen lake ice to secluded ice caves. Ice caves are formed by ground water that becomes frozen when it comes into contact with cold air. As the water is pulled through the sediment it forms crystals of varying shapes and colors. Please note, Lake Superior Ice is dynamic. If the conditions become unsafe for walking on the ice to the ice caves, an alternate hike will be planned.
