Churchill is known as the “Gateway to the Arctic,” and as such, the region maintains many Arctic traditions, including the use of dog sleds for transportation and recreation. An introductory sled dog excursion may be available on our polar bear expeditions, weather permitting. This overview outing is designed to introduce visitors to the tradition of sled dogs in the northland and includes a short but exhilarating, mile-long ride through the boreal wilderness. The focus of this excursion is to visit and learn about the dogs and the dog sledding tradition from an expert musher. For many of our travelers, this experience is a true highlight of their northern adventure!

When time allows during your polar bear expedition.
The dog sled excursion is generally easy, and one guest is able to sit while another will stand. Guests should be able to stand on their own as it will be difficult for them to be pulled behind the dog sled if they require substantial assistance. Guests also need to be able to hold their own weight if they are in the siting position as the dog sled will sway from side to side during turns.
