Are Dog Sled Tours Safe?
Because of the natural dangers that occur when dog sledding, our instructors are very hands-on. This means that we take the time to educate our guests before running. As an informed guest, you'll be able to make better decisions to protect yourself from potential dangers. Most of the things that we teach are common sense – hold on to the sled with two hands if you're driving, don't stick your arms out of the sled if you are a passenger, etc. If you are driving your own sled, an instructor will teach you how to brake and which commands you need to know.
Other than that, our instructors are always close by to keep an eye on things and to make sure our guests are safe and happy. At the same time, we won't get in the way of you doing what you want to do and having a great time. Feel free to stop as many times as you'd like if you want to soak up the beauty of the landscape, snap a few selfies, or just stretch your legs and get your blood flowing.
