Dog Sledding and Snowshoeing


Join us on our trip to Northern Ontario where there is always lot of snow and scratch some winter experiences off your bucket list! We will take you dog sledding and snowshoeing – two truly Canadian activities in one package!

Our first stop will be in Sundridge Ontario, home of Ed Schmidt. He will teach you how to dog sled and take you on his private trails. Why we do love Ed? He takes care of his dogs and treats them well; he loves to accommodate small groups so you will have his full attention. Ed owns private trails so we will be the only ones in the forest!

We will be devided into three groups and will take turns in dog sledding and snowshoeing. Snowshoeing is a form of hiking. Snowshoes work by distributing the weight of the person over a larger area so that the person's foot does not sink completely into the snow, a quality called "flotation".

If you will feel too cold you can always warm up by the campfire. Hot lunch is included and you can also try roast marshmallows over the campfire while you will be sipping hot chocolate after the lunch.

This is a 1-day trip.

What to pack?

1. SCARF OR NECKWARMER, very nice to have on a cold or windy day.
2. EARMUFFS OR HEADBAND, not a substitute for a warm hat, but good to have on a warmer day.
3. GOGGLES OR SUNGLASSES, to keep sun and blowing snow from blinding you.
4. HANDKERCHIEF OR TISSUES, for your runny nose, or to clean up spilt soup.
5. LIP BALM, keep your lips from cracking.
6. THROAT LOZENGES, you may have to shout a lot, to your team, or to be heard over top of barking dogs.
7. HANDWARMERS, great for keeping hands and feet warm, but they take time and oxygen to start working so be sure to activate them at least 20 minutes before you put them in your boots or mittens.

8. CAMERA, of course you will want photos of all your friends, kids, or spouses’ spectacular wipeouts. PRO TIP: keep your electronics warm with handwarmers or by keeping them close to your body. Batteries hate the cold!

9. WARM CLOTH - Warm pants, jacket, sweater, mittens, hat, boots, socks.
