Join us this winter as we travel to the “Explorer’s Edge” region of Ontario, for a truly unique Canadian experience…DOG SLEDDING AND SNOWSHOEING!!!
 
Our host, Sugardogs Adventure Company, operated by Ed Schmidt, will introduce you to dog sledding along gorgeous natural trails following the contours of the 100 acre property. The property has been in the Schmidt family for generations and you will feel like you’ve been transported to a winter wonderland as you drive your dogsled team through trails lined on each side with snow covered trees.
 
When we arrive on the property, near Sundridge, Ontario, you will receive a very warm greeting by close to 30 well loved dogs. Go ahead and say hi…but prepared to receive doggy kisses in return…lots of them.
 
Ed, and his colleagues, will provide an extensive, informative, lesson on how to lead your sled dog team through the winding forest trails. After the lesson you will feel like you are an expert on all facets of dog sledding.
 
Still have questions? No problem, feel free to ask, Ed and his team love everyone’s interest in the dogs, the property and the operation.
We will split into two groups after the instructions. First group will go sledding and second group will go snowshoeing through the woods and private trail.
 
A cozy prospector style canvas tent a short walk up the trail from the entrance to the property, with a roaring fireplace inside, will keep you warm and comfortable while you await your turn on the trails.
While your lunch is being prepared, feel free to try your hand at roasting marshmallows over the campfire while you enjoy a steaming cup of hot chocolate.
After lunch, and everyone has had their chance to lead a dogsled and, and has taken enough selfies with the dogs, we will head back towards Toronto stopping at Screaming Heads to enjoy our second traditional Canadian activity of the day…SNOWSHOEING. 
The Screaming Heads is one of the most interesting and unusual places to visit all year around. We will snowshoe between the 20-ft concrete sculptures created by local artist Peter Camani who lives in a castle on the property which was featured on the first episode of MTV's Extreme Cribs!
 
So much fun!
After our visit to Screaming Heads relax and bask in the excitement of your day as our driver safely delivers you back to your pick up location.
This is a full day long excursion filled with adventure, approximately 12 hours, and we will do our best to make your day comfortable with plenty of rest stops and area information. Please feel free to bring snacks or refreshments along with you.
 
Christmas holidays and long weekend rate is $295/adult.
