Dogsledding is a unique way to explore British Columbia’s wilderness in winter.
Many resorts and operators offer dogsledding tours and memorable backcountry experiences. Sleds are pulled by enthusiastic teams of dogs, usually Siberian or Alaskan huskies, and glide quietly along snow-covered trails. Scenery along the route can include mountain views, frozen lakes or powder-filled meadows.
No experience is needed to enjoy dogsledding, and it’s possible to choose the level of participation. Sit cocooned and cosy in the sled. Or, learn commands from your guide (gee, haw, hike!), stand on the sled runners and drive the dog team.
BC also provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity to have mail delivered via dogsled. During the Gold Rush Trail Dog Sled Mail Run, dogsled teams carry souvenir envelopes along a historic, 100-km/62-mi route from Quesnel to Wells; the mail then enters the regular postal system and is sent to recipients around the world.
