My boyfriend surprised me with this trip and I was amazed at the overall experience! I never thought I would ever be able to experience dog sledding and this was the ultimate experience. The dogs were great, well mannered and LOVED their job. It was incredible seeing how pumped they got when we were hooking up our team. The staff... More

This was an amazing experience!! The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. They taught us what to do and then let us do as much, or as little, as we wanted, The scenery was spectacular. The experience ranged from peaceful to thrilling, and was consistently fun. Would go back in a heartbeat.

No one in my group of Ninjas had ever experienced something like this, and we all had a blast. From going through the the 12 hour fresh white forest and through the Alaska wilderness-like sphagnum bog, this was an incredible experience. Everyone was prepared with the intros from Paige and Dan. They were very thorough in their prep for our... More

White Wilderness was really everything we were hoping for! We came out to Minnesota from New York City, and having done a bunch of research before making the trip, we decided on White Wilderness for its remote location and exceptional reviews - and it didn't disappoint. We did a day trip with our guide Theo - she was knowledgeable, supportive... More

I agree with the other positive reviews here. We did the multi-day, lodge-based option with White Wilderness in December 2016, and we were very positively impressed with the friendliness of both the guides and the dogs. It was obvious that the dogs are well cared for and well trained. Dog sledding was very easy, so this would be an enjoyable... More

We had a wonderful experience with White Wilderness and would (already have) recommend the full day shared trip to anyone. We were out approx 6.5 hours and went approx 28 miles. It was great to be able to switch out driving and riding. The other people in our group and our guides (Kasha and Jamiah) were fantastic and we enjoyed... More

We were at White Wilderness Dec 2016. We have done dog sledding in Jackson Hole WY Norway Quebec . This was by far the best dog sledding trip. they allowed more interaction with the dogs......setting up harnesses / hooking up the team / etc . We had never been allowed to do that at the other trips. Also guides were... More

The day we left it was -30 in Ely, MN. While that sounds frigid, we never were cold. The staff at White Wilderness Dog Sledding know exactly what clients need to wear to stay warm and enjoy an outdoor adventure! Fortunately, the temps rose as our mushing got underway. We had lunch on lakes by campfires, returned to the yurt... More
