Dogsledding add-on - half day

Check it off your bucket list!

This half day loop can be part of your Aurora viewing package and is ideal for anyone who wants to experience dogsledding in a nice bite-size. The experienced mushers with their friendly dogs pick you up at the Lodge and take you for a ride on a part of the vast, 100km long Tagish Lake - enjoy the views as a sled passengers or get hands-on and stand on the runners beside the musher, driving the team through the winter landscape. Who knows, maybe you'll even see a lynx walking along the shore while you ride along quietly and peacefully....

This tour can be booked as part of a multi-day stay at Tagish Wilderness Lodge, for example to spice up your day after a night of Northern Lights watching with our Wilderness Aurora Viewing.
