Have you ever wanted to take your family to hang out with sledding dogs and take a dog sledding adventure? You probably haven’t done this type of family adventure yet, because you think you need to travel all the way to Alaska to do it. But you can actually take a family vacation in New England and go dog sledding! It is a memorable adventure that will bring your family together as you experience something wonderful.
There are quite a few places to go dog sledding in New England. Therefore, you shouldn’t feel trapped in visiting a destination that doesn’t interest you at all. I can easily help you determine which area will be the best for your family.
To get you started in seeing the possibilities, here are a few dog sledding options in New England:
Dog sledding season in New England runs from the middle of December through the end of March. Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel offers tours on Tuesdays through Sundays most weeks. They offer four different tours. Those tours include a one-and-a-half-hour tour, a three-hour tour, a mini mush tour, and a musher for a minute tour. Two of the tours require guests to be at least two years old to participate. The three-hour tour has an age of five years old as a requirement. The Musher for a Minute tour requires guests to be at least twelve years old.
There are around eighty sled dogs at this facility, so you will have plenty of cuddling and play time during your visit.
This destination offers tours from November through April. They can stay open a little longer because they are on a mountain snow belt. Your visit will include hands-on opportunities with the Alaskan huskies. During your tour, you will be taken along the trail system. This system goes through 140 acres of land, as well as the dogsledding village. At the end of your tour, you will have plenty of time to spend with the dogs and enjoy a few refreshments.
You can choose between half-day and full-day tours when you choose to visit Maine Dogsledding Adventures. Your tour will begin with you meeting the huskies and having your picture taken with them. Everyone will have a turn driving the sled as you travel between ten and twelve miles into the forest. While you may be so focused on the dogs, you must also take the time to appreciate the views of Mt. Katahdin in the distance.
This dog sledding destination is actually open year-round. Therefore, you can even plan a fun dogsledding adventure for the summer months if you are not a fan of the cold and the snow. Your entire family can learn how to take the reins of the dog sled as you take a ride through the forest and open fields. While those are a lot of fun, I actually recommend attending their Sled Dog Camp for the best experience. You will have your own dog to take care of during your weeklong camp, which will only enhance your experience with this adventure.
These are the best places to go dog sledding in New England. You will love the time you get to spend with your family on this type of adventure! You won’t regret the memories you make with your family and the sled dogs during this vacation in New England.
