Where to Go Whitefish, Montana, Dog Sledding
Dog Sled Adventures
Dog Sled Adventures has been giving dog sledding tours for more than 40 years! This family-owned company is home to almost 130 Alaskan huskies that pull their sleds. Bundle up on their comfy sleds and let them take you through the stunning Stillwater State Forest. You’ll get to see the beautiful trees covered in snow, and many times, rare wildlife is present. Afterward, you’ll head back to their cabin to warm up by the fire as you sip on hot cocoa and reminisce about your adventure.
Located in Big Fork, Montana, Base Camp is known for a wide range of winter activities and tours. They offer everything from snowshoeing to dog sledding! We love to go dog sledding with Base Camp because they offer a hands-on experience. You can even harness the dogs and drive your own team if you’d like! Each trip is customized to your wants and needs. Whether you’re looking to sit back and relax or get in on the action, you’ll be in good hands with Base Camp.
