Canmore Kananaskis Winter Adventures: Dogsledding!
- Winter Experiences
- Karen Fennell - October 5, 2018
Try to resist the tough, hearty and totally adorable sled dogs of Alberta!
There is majesty, history and culture in the image of a team of huskies pulling a sled through the snow, particularly for many indigenous people in Canada, for whom dog sledding was once a key transportation mode.
But also: Adorable!
With their thick coats and ice blue eyes, huskies may have been bred to run through the snow, but they may as well have been bred to steal hearts. Alberta has many sled dog operators who offer visitors and locals a chance to experience the unique sensation of being pulled by a team of dogs, but also a chance to get up close and personal with some of the cutest dogs ever.
A Dog’s Life
What’s life like for a husky? Go behind the scenes with Alberta’s Snowy Owl Sled Dog Tours in Canmore, where the dogs that love to run get a little spoiled sometimes too.
