We will take you on our tour of Winter Activities at Aurora Village for your experience of Dog Team Ride Experience. You will be joined by other guests who are booked on other activities. In addition to your Dog Team Ride Experience, you will enjoy a host of other winter fun including tubing on the giant slide, marshmallow roasting on the fire pit, trying out the traditional snowshoes for a quick walk for photo op, etc all included in the tour price. You will have about three hours to take in the winter afternoon in a safe, comfortable, and beautiful environment. Yes, we have washrooms, and place to warm up! Help yourself to hot drinks.
As for your Dog Team Ride Experience, watch everything whiz by on our traditional sleds as our team of 10 Huskies work together to take you on an exhilarating and safe ride on our beautiful wooded trail. We run our sleds with only for your group, whether you are a couple, or friends of three persons, or family of four so that you can enjoy your own private experience. (During some very busy period, we may ask you to share the sled with other guests.)
The actual ride is about 15 minutes in the wooded trails with ups and down, and some curves. It is a thrilling ride!!! You might be thinking now 15 minutes is too short, but to experience the ride in minus 30 degrees Centigrade temperature or even colder, you will soon find out why we do not offer longer rides! You will be feeling much colder with wind chill.
OPTION: For additional $50 per person, you can add “SNOWSHOE EXPERIENCE with Guide” on the same day. After your DOG TEAM RIDE EXPERIENCE, our guide will take you on Snowshoe Walk far onto our land. (Please see “SNOWSHOE WALK with Guide” for details.) Please phone or email our office in advance.
By the way, Dining Hall is open for lunch with deli sandwiches and soup & bannock for purchase. So, you don’t have to rush with your late breakfast or early lunch in town.
