We took the half a day dog sledding tour as it came highly recommended. We were not disappointed. We were two adults and one child in one sledge, and there was only one other sledge in our group (two lovely ladies with the instructor) , which made our experience even better. This wasn't our first time dog sledding but the... More

We were hesitant to book our tour so late in the season, especially since rain was predicted for Banff, but the tour is at a higher elevation. It was a perfect snowy day for our tour. There were a few ruts in the approximately 10 mile trail, but considering it was the last week of the season, it wasn't bad.... More

Great experience on the trail through wooded areas and across the open vista of the frozen lake. Opportunity to make it as hands on as you like or to ride in the sled. Following the introductory talk the excitement among the dogs intensifies and there is ample opportunity to bond with your team. Our guide Kalub had plenty of tales... More

Our party of 5 (adults and teenagers 18 and 16) did the Sunfeather Winterlude 4 hour tour. The whole experience was fantastic. The dogs are beautiful and obviously well cared for and love a cuddle. In the pre-briefing we were told that Snowy Owl is the only operator that allows guest to drive the sled, we all jumped at this... More

This was a great experience that my wife and I enjoyed on our 5th anniversary. Great customer service and communication when booking the tour, amazing guides on the tour, and once in a lifetime experience that was tons of fun. Driving a dog sled team is something that everyone should experience because the experience can't be explained in words. We... More

The people that run this facility LOVE what they do! They are friendly to dogs and visitors alike, and the dogs love them right back. It was so clean and well run. We got to mingle with the dogs as well as the puppies. I would recommend visiting to anyone. They really know about the dogs and there are so... More

Literally a trip of a lifetime. Life changing experience. All four of us drive the sleds (with excellent guides) including our cautious eleven year old and our seven year old.

Had an amazing time on the Sled Dog Tour. Booked in for the 9 am one - dogs were super excited and the snow was perfect. Would suggest the morning run as I expect the dogs would get a bit tired. So much fun! Take a camera as you do get to stop on a lake for a picture. The... More

My son and I did this tour and loved it. It was definitely a highlight of our holiday my only regret is that we didn't do a longer tour because this went by so quickly. Things were well organised with good communication through the booking process. The dogs were awesome, we loved how excited they got when it was time... More

Our family all highly recommends doing this!! It was so well organized, the guides were amazing, the dogs were so friendly and the tour was so fun! Very interesting and informative as well! They take you up into the mountains, across a frozen lake, so peaceful! We had booked 2 guided sleds for our family of 4, but I ended... More
