My 11 year old great nephew and I had the most awesome day with Snowy Owl's staff and dogs. The dogs are beautiful, friendly and run like the wind. My nephew got to drive the sled and was 'over the moon'. We have already recommended this experience to many others and will do it again and again. Thanks Carlin and... More

I only remember that he is from Peterbrough, Ontario. He was our guide and the instructor for everyone. He takes care of 3 groups of sled dog, he helped... More

Let me start by saying that there is a reason why we have gone sledding with Snowy Owls 3 times now....To be able to drive your own sled with a team of beautiful dogs in the mountains of Canada is something everyone should do. This company is extremely professional; family owned and over the years they keep getting better and... More

the staff were very helpful and pleasant, we had a guide as we had two younger children with us and none of us had ever done this before. Each of the boys got to drive the sled, much to their total excitement. The adults also got to have a turn which was truly fun! At the end of the run... More

Really well organized, our dogs were so wonderful and beautiful. Went as couple, but strangely a third person came on our sled, as two can fit on the sled while one steers. Threes a crowd! No big deal but it's split like this otherwise you pay more if you have your own sled? Anyways, the experience was unforgettable. You really... More
