I proposed to my best friend and Fiance Cassandra on a tour and it was the happiest moment of my life. There was assistance from the guide and other staff members but Kamilla and... More

We attended a military/police dog conference in Banff and had the opportunity to do this. What an experience, we are from australia and dog sledding is synonymous with Canada. Picked up from the hotel and taken to Canmore where they made sure you were ok with cold weather gear. Yes we had to hire some things but it's ok honestly... More

We visited Canmore as a family over Christmas and had an amazing time. We booked half day tour with Snowy Owl. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived at the office and were collected by the bus driver, they even had booster seats in the van for my son. We arrived on site to be greeted by lots of...

By far the highlight of our trip from Australia. I'm Canadian by birth, showing my kids the amazing beauty and fun of the Rockies. This activity tops it all! So good for the entire family. True respect for the owners and carers of the dogs... they are so happy and so well looked after. Just an amazing experience.

Both our kids (boys 9 & 11) are still talking about this, and we went early April. The late season this year meant that the trails were still great - and the Snowy Owl crew do a great job with the dogs - and educating both adults and kids about the dogs and sledding. Our oldest boy loves dogs and... More

We took the half a day dog sledding tour as it came highly recommended. We were not disappointed. We were two adults and one child in one sledge, and there was only one other sledge in our group (two lovely ladies with the instructor) , which made our experience even better. This wasn't our first time dog sledding but the... More

We were hesitant to book our tour so late in the season, especially since rain was predicted for Banff, but the tour is at a higher elevation. It was a perfect snowy day for our tour. There were a few ruts in the approximately 10 mile trail, but considering it was the last week of the season, it wasn't bad.... More
