("Have you known the
"Great White Silence")

Have you known the "Great White Silence", not a snow-gemmed twig a quiver? Mushed your huskies up the river? Then harken to the wild it's calling you. (Source: "Call of the Wild" - Robert Service)

Have you ever wondered about the wild in winter ... the words of Robert Service stirs up images of cool, clean, crisp snow and adventure in river valleys and along forested trails. Have you ever wondered about how you could enjoy Alberta's winter wonderland with safety and comfort?

Experience the joy and wonderment of winter by joining Klondike Ventures for Dog Sledding, and backcountry experiences.



approx 6 hours

Presently we have 26 enthusiastic Alaskan Huskies running this winter.  We offer a “learn to mush” experience, where 2 of you run your own sled with 4 - 6 dogs depending on the snow conditions and temperatures.  The progressions are completely at your own pace according to your comfort level.  We begin on a large tracked field, working up to flat trails and then trails with some more challenges (not all get to this point). We supply a hot BBQ lunch around a roaring fire overlooking the river and drinks throughout the day as needed.
$619 + GST for up to 2 people.

$849 +GST for 4 persons.

''The Klondiker''- (1/2 Day)
approx 3 hours

The half day Sled Dog Tour for 2 people with a guide on each sled. Similar to the Full Day, but the progressions move more quickly. Refreshments are available while you sign the guest book before your departure

$374 + GST for up to 2 people.

''THE CANADIAN'' - Full Day -- ''CUSTOM"

Create the experience you desire with a combination of Dog Sledding and Skijoring or either.
