Dog Sledding the Arctic Tundra

One evening whilst in Churchill we went Dog Sledding. Some chose to sit this out but we were front and center. Especially when we heard there hadn’t been enough snow to use the snow sleds hence we’d be sitting in carts with wheels!

Having experienced a VERY long dog sled ride in Lapland we already knew just how “rough” those sleds could be so were overjoyed at the prospect of wheels. No, it may not have been visually pleasing but gosh it was comfortable, lol!

The only disappointment of the night was that our ride distance was halved due to a Polar Bear hanging around the sled runs. Additional look-out were posted on the runs for our safety and like all the tour guides of Churchill, each of the mushers carried a rifle.

No matter, we still had a fabulous night and as for the sled ride itself, we could have gone all night. Unlike Lapland were even I had to agree with Miss Five at the time… “mum, how much longer?”

    • Six dogs per sled, two sleds running, with different dogs being changed out as each of the runs were completed. It was so nice being out on the sled, just a shame about that lurking Polar Bear otherwise we could have stayed out longer.
