Do you love animals and are looking for an amazing winter adventure? Be certain to head into the Canadian Rocky Mountains and take part in one of the many Sled Dog adventure tours that are offered. It’s overlanding, sled dog style!
The VagabondExpedition team joined up with Snowy Owl Tours out of Canmore Alberta for a morning adventure with their guides and very energetic team of dogs.
“Hike On” and the dogs are off and running. Your sled dog adventure takes you through various trails and across a frozen lake a few miles South-West of the town of Canmore. The guides say you’re apt to spot wildlife while out on the trails, but it’s easy to get focused on the dogs and other like-minded adventurers so you might miss out if you’re not looking everywhere. I was too busy juggling multiple cameras and didn’t see much other than the dogs.
Of course, working side by side all day long is not without the occasional ‘disagreement’. I really wished I was a bit quicker with the camera to frame this action up better than what I managed, but you see what I mean. No worries though, the dogs just have a very brief ‘conversation’ like this and they’re off and running as a functional team once again.
Check out our (shaky) video on the excursion. Be sure to watch in HD (adjust your YouTube settings).
