Dog Sledding

North Shore Dog Sledding

Now here’s something not everyone can do on their Minnesota winter vacation – go for a dog sled ride! Back in the day, this was the only way to get around the North Shore. Now it’s a tradition kept alive by a handful of kennels and highlighted by the annual John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon, named for the legendary mail carrier who ran supplies and mail at the turn of the 20th century.


Winter Vacation Experience of a Lifetime

Snug into a dog sled and enjoy the ride of a lifetime as a team of hand-chosen sled dogs carries you through a winter wonderland. Or drive your own sled under the guidance of one of the top mushers (dog sled drivers) in the nation.
