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
The 4 Day / 4 Night Lead Dog's Choice package starts at $775 CAD per person and is available through March 15, 2012. Call 888.747.7572 for reservations or email: office@shearwatertours.com.
