Dogsleds were the original snowmobiles, transporting people across the snow-frosted forests and ice-kissed lakes of the north. Mix irresistible dogs with beautiful snow, and you’ve got the recipe for a winter adventure you won’t forget.
Cook County is host to a few dogsled races throughout the year.
Watching is fun, but doing is even better!
In Cook County, there are several dog mushing companies that will take you out on the adventure of a lifetime. You can opt for a 2-hour, half-day or all-day trip — and maybe even learn to drive your own team. By the end of the excursion, at least one of the dogs will have stolen your heart, that’s a guarantee.
The following businesses offer dogsledding adventures. Call ahead to reserve your spot.
- Bearskin Lodge
- Grand Marais Sled Dog Adventures
- Gunflint Lodge – available as part of a lodging package purchase
- Points Unknown Dog-Based Adventures
- Stone Harbor Wilderness Supply (offering both Dogsled Adventures as well as Skijoring equipment)
