Imagine yourself riding the rails of a dogsled, being pulled behind a team of eager and affectionate huskies in the pristine wilderness of northern Minnesota. Travel across frozen lakes and snow-covered portages on your way to some of the most remote and breathtaking scenery in North America, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCAW). Our most popular offering is the multi-night dogsled/winter camping/ice fishing trip. Other options include dog sledding daytrips and ice-fishing excursions; see the Trip Options page for details.
Travel by dog sled over some of the beautiful Boundary Waters lakes to winter fish for trout, pike, and panfish. An exhilarating run over ice with Bob, an experienced guide and dedicated fisherman, transforms the angler experience. Bring your own tackle or use ours: we provide the bait, the dogsled, the auger, the experience. Drive back through Ely with a new passion and great stories.
The BWCAW, or Boundary Waters, is the crown jewel of the Superior National Forest: over a million acres in size, with over a thousand lakes, this wilderness area offers an unparalleled experience of pristine northern beauty. National Geographic includes the BWCAW / Boundary Waters on its list of the top 50 ?must see places in the USA.? Mechanized travel is prohibited altogether in the Boundary Waters, except on a few designated lakes, and no mechanized travel is allowed during the winter. This makes the BWCAW the perfect venue for an unforgettable wilderness dogsledding adventure.
