We are a small family-owned and operated Sled Dog Touring company running dogsled tours out of Canmore, AB in the Kananaskis Provincial Park adjacent to Banff National Park. We have been in operation for 15 years with the British Army our main client. We run 2-hour, Half-Day, and Full-Day. This year we have opened our Kennel for tours during the summer season so we can offer family-dog adventures year round. We specialize in smaller groups and encourage involvement so you can experience dogsledding like a real musher.

My wife and I took our 3 kids (9, 6 and 4) on the 2hr Mountain Musher tour and it was enormously fun! Our 9yr old son and I got to mush a sled (together) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Jan and the crew explained everything very clearly. We got to participate in setting up the sleds and interacting with the... More

My boyfriend and I did the 2 hour trip and we absolutely loved it! We were lucky because it was a beautiful day so the scenery was just stunning out on the lake. The dogs were so friendly and we had plenty of time to interact with them before the tour. The staff were all very friendly and chatted with... More

We did the 1.5 hr tour for our baby girls first birthday. Jan & Karen took great care of us and showed us a great time. Our kids (1 & 2.5 years) loved it! The pups were very friendly and we roasted marshmallows while we sipped hot chocolate in the teepee. It was the perfect amount of time to go... More

Visited Mad Dogs and signed up for a morning tour (on probably the coldest morning of the month, 26 below). Administration (at the Mad Dog Cafe) was snagless and then on to Spray Lakes to meet the mutts! Well organised on arrival with Jan as our guide, the dogs were all loved and in good condition. The tour lasted around... More

Was a great experience doing the 2 hour musher tour just what we needed. Guides Jan and Sam were great and put us all at ease with driving the sleds. Would recommend this tour company over any in the area.

My husband and I just did our two-hour Mountain Musher tour today, with Ian, Jan and Giovanni, and the day could not have been better. We had unbelievable weather, and to be able to interact with the dogs so much before, during and after our tour made the day unforgettable. The dogs were so sweet, well taken care of, athletic,...

I booked the Mountain Musher dog sled tour for myself and my partner and we were incredibly satisfied. The dogs were very well trained and very well cared for. The staff, including Giovanni, were friendly, professional and always wiling to share stories from other tours and their passion for their dogs. The registration process was flawless with Dawn as were... More

This was an absolutely amazing experience. Dog sledding was the top of my Canada bucket-list & this company fitted us in on very short notice. The sled was an experience I will never forget - thank you so much for making my dream come true! I would recommend this tour & this company to anyone who wants to sled &... More
