Join your professional musher in harnessing and staging the dogs, learn the commands and feel the thrill of driving your own team. Relax with your family as you ride a mellow mix of open and winding trails for an unforgettable winter journey, with plenty of photo opportunities.

Bonnie & Clyde’s Getaway Dogsled Tour
Run like Bonnie and Clyde around the beautiful Callaghan Valley. Cruise through narrow winding trails of old growth forest, graced with great cedar giants that are hundreds of years old. Pass white capping rivers that lead you to Canadian Dogsled Adventures’ Igloo. Here you can strap on snowshoes, if required and in minutes you’ll be trekking to one of British Columbia’s top 10 waterfalls, the spectacular 140ft Alexander Falls. Cozy back into your sled and then hang on as your team of sled dogs do what they love to do most, RUN! Tucked comfortably into your enclosed bed toboggan, you’ll be chasing a piece of Canadian History.

” This was a brilliant day out and a wonderful experience! All the guides we met were really friendly and enthusiastic, they were extremely knowledgeable on the area as well as explaining the ‘mechanics’ of dog sledding. The dogs were absolutely beautiful and surprisingly friendly and affectionate for working dogs. We had the opportunity to try to ‘drive’ the dog teams as well as help to harness them and give them a treat at the end. They were also happy for us to have lots of lovely cuddles with the dogs and see the latest additions (2 week old puppies!). I would highly recommend this trip to anyone in the area, as long as you like dogs!”
