december to mid april
We take a maximun of up to 4 riders on the sled, no problem if its only one. Children over the age of 12 only please, being a small company we dont stock clothing for small children to keep warm on the sled.
Start time of your experience depends on which month, amount of sunlight and weather conditions. We usally start early around 0800 in December, january but then earlier for february march and april. An evening experience will start later in the day before sunset.
Why you ask? Its for our dogs, they need the coldest time. Also you get to experience some amazing sunrises or sunsets.
Duration of your experience again depends on the dogs and the weather. We do not take out any tourists if the weather goes below -25 or if the weather conditions are snow blizzard. Please be aware of this.
Why you ask ? We are out on the sled for some time and it does get cold, believe me its not enjoyable being cold in -30 and there can be a chance of frost bite.
