At Mountain Man Dog Sled Adventures, You'll have the opportunity to experience the thrill of driving your own dog sled!

Live the dream of feeling the raw power of Alaskan Huskies pulling the sled through the Canadian Winter Wonderland that is the back country of Sun Peaks Mountain Resort, just a short drive from Kamloops, BC.

You'll see signs of wildlife on our private trails that wind through the forest. We'll start off by showing you how the dogs live, and then they'll show you how much they love to run!

After falling in love with our first dog sledding experience with Mountain Man Adventures the previous winter so much that we treated our adult kids to their own dog sledding experience the following Christmas (also fantastic!), we are now keen on doing whatever activity we can with these amazing dogs so well looked after and run by Chris & Taryn...

I went dog sledding with them during the winter of 2015/2016 and I enjoyed every second of it! We got picked up by one of their employees holding a husky puppy in her arms and while still waiting on other guests to arrive we were allowed to hold her and cuddle with her! That was an amazing first impression! When... More

I am a seventy & woman and still have many activities on my "to do" list. Dog sledding was one of them. My husband and I and a group of friends were on a ski vacation at Sun Peaks last February. Skiing back to our hotel after a day of wonderful skiing we met a woman and two young Arctic... More

Thank you for such a glowing review! Thank you also for the feedback regarding the Shuttle Service. We are setting up a new starting point and the shuttle will drop our guests off much closer to the starting point. For the days (and our 5pm tour) that the shuttle does not service, we will be providing transportation for our guests.... More

You will not be one bit disappointed in this experience. The entire time from beginning to end was so worth it. Our family including 2 girls (7 and 5 years old) traveled the trails to the amazing frozen lake, it was a wonderful morning. The guides Taryn and Jase made the experience for both young and older one to remember.... More

I went on the 1 1/2 hr sled trip through forest trials and around frozen lakes with my teen daughter 2 years ago and we both had a great experience. On the last AM of our family ski trip this year, my wife and younger daughter also went sledding and loved it. They were particularly impressed with their guide's knowledge... More

I agree with most of what's been said before. Booking over the phone was easy & a confirmation email was sent immediately. The only caveat I'd add is that if you have back trouble, you may want to bring extra padding for the seats. There is a cushion, but the sleds are not sprung and the bumps can be hard.

Thank you for your feedback! We do have additional cushions available upon request. We make every effort to ensure guest comfort. Chris is also out grooming our trail daily to minimize bumps on the trail. Taryn S More

We did one of the shorter tours and it was so much fun! Jessica was our guide and she was knowledgable and friendly. She even said she felt safe when she let us 'drive' haha. The dogs are so cute and they love attention. And the puppies!! So adorable! I would definitely recommend this one of a kind experience to... More

Did the born to run (longer) tour with Chris and the team, you are met by a member of the team and a couple 4 month old puppies to walk you down to the sleigh area which we thought was a nice welcoming touch. There was an explanation on each of the dogs, their breeding and the history which was... More

We had a great afternoon with Chris and his team.We loved meeting the dogs and the new puppies. The trip was exhilarating, the scenery beautiful and we all got a turn to drive the sled around the lake. A unique Canadian experience for us Aussies .

This was booked a surprise gift by our son and it doesn't disappoint. Despite the fact that I had broken my arm the previous week we were still able to do this. Chris was kindness itself and throughout the trip kept checking I was ok. The dogs are fantastic, each with a unique personality and if I could I would... More
