  • There are many dog sled tour operators, and there are many types of tours. The most basic tours involve riding in a sled with someone else controlling the reigns for 30 minutes. The next level of tours are usually multi hour sessions that get you trained just well enough to handle a sled by yourself. Finally, there’s a whole other level of tours that involve learning how to control your own sled and then taking that out for an overnight adventure.
