Dog Sledding at its Best!

Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve Ltd consists of 80.000 acres of forested, rolling hills interspersed with more than 50 lakes and hundreds of wetlands. Winding through the forest are more than 300 kilometers of groomed trails making this a dogsledder's paradise. Hidden along the trails are a number of small camps and shelters providing scenic locations to have a snack, warm up or stay overnight.

 

The Dogs

One hundred and fifty Siberian Huskies, known for their exuberant friendliness, await your arrival. Docile and lovable, these dogs enjoy a run and work-out pulling sleighs. Once harnessed up and on the trail there is nothing that compares to experiencing winter with the sound of snow rustling under the runners of your sleigh and the panting of your dogs.

The Trails

Over the last 40 years Haliburton Forest has prided itself in creating one of the best trail systems in Canada - and our dogsled trails are no exception. With state-of-the-art grooming equipment, professional staff and a location on the Algonquin Dome, we can guarantee incredible winter conditions.

To participate in our tours, guests will not require prior dog sledding experience. Our professional guides will introduce you to the basics of dog sledding in order to ensure that you will have a safe and enjoyable dog sledding experience. While dog sledding does require physical participation, guests do not have to be in excellent physical condition, but should bring along an attitude of adventure.
