Don't ski or snowboard? Go dogsledding in Saskatchewan!
Just because you aren't a skier or snowboarder doesn't mean that you can't enjoy winter sports. I'm a big fan of snowshoeing and dogsledding. In fact, I've dogsledded in Quebec, Montana and north of the Arctic Circle in Svarnik, Norway.
One place that I think would be fun to go dogsledding is Saskatchewan, and I'm putting it on my winter bucket list. Canada Nature Escapes Cooperative has put together a special four-day dogsledding package, where you'll learn the history and how-to of dog sledding, plus sledding through Saskatchewan's woods, lakes and muskegs (bogs) of its boreal forest. The Lead Dog's Choice package includes:
- First and last nights' accommodations at the Hilton Garden Inn, Saskatoon
- Two-day car rental (mid-size)
- Two nights at Land of the Loon Resort
- Two breakfasts and two three-course dinners
- Guide and mentor during trail rides
- Travel maps instructions, recommendations
