My wife and I had an amazing trip with Eric and some of his dogs. He knows each of them so well, including their preferences and habits, and very obviously cares for their welfare above all. A lovely morning spent in the BC mountains near Revelstoke
Our family had a wonderful experience on our Dogsledding adventure. The guides (Crystal, Lovis, and Anthony) were all knowledgeable, friendly and made sure that our day was just what we had hoped for! Getting up close and personal with the dogs after their run was awesome and having a chance to “drive” the sled was very fun! We would definitely recommend Revelstoke Dogsledding tours!
Definitely recommend checking out Revelstoke Dogsled Adventures if you are staying in the Revelstoke area. Awesome people and even more awesome dogs! Dress warmly and get ready for an adventure. This was the highlight of our trip.
We decided to go dogsledding the day before we flew home and were so happy we did!The experience was informative and very safe. We enjoyed the the outdoors, dogs and our guide. Would recommend this for all ages..
Dogsled im Dunkeln, richtig tolles Erlebnis. Ganz liebe Hunde und richtig toller Speed beim Fahren. Eine Trainingseinheit für die Hunde, für den bevorstehenden Wettkampf in der nächsten Woche. Im ersten Teil saßen wir zu zweit vorne drin und haben die Tour richtig genossen. Wir haben die Chance bekommen, auch hinten mit drauf zu stehen und selbst zu führen, eine super Kraftakt, der enormen Spaß gemacht hat.Zum Abschluss wurden die Hunde gelobt und wir wurden mit heißer Schokolade belohnt :) Ganz lieben Dank an Jeff, ein toller, sympathischer Typ, der für alle Fragen offen steht. Wir empfehlen Dich und Deine Hunde gerne weiter.Liebe Grüße aus dem Sauerland.
Crystal was an entertaining and knowledgeable guide who managed the trip and dogs to perfection. I would reinforce the previous reviews and encourage you to wear very warm, windproof clothing. The sled ride is extremely bumpy and wouldn't be appropriate if you have back trouble. The ride would certainly be more comfortable if it was possible to use a mini snow plow on the route perhaps once a week.
We always appreciate genuine people. Eric, the business owner is a one of a kind, flat out in everything he does. He loves his job, which includes his dogs. When he’s not running sledding tours or being a family man to his 2 kids, he’s competing in sledding events. Our guide Crystal loves her job as much as Eric and of course her own dog Spencer. The dogs get insanely wound up right before takeoff- busting for a run. Forget about having a conversation as it’s all about the dogs at this point. Once underway, the sled on snow is the only sound you will hear. Take warm clothes (ski gear is good) and I would recommend goggles as the dogs kick up tiny snowballs from their paws. Revvy Dogsled Adventures is the place to go if you are after grass roots dogsledding. Thanks for the hot chocolate at the end Eric- we had a great experience. Cheers, Tez n Kaz.
This was an AWESOME experience, and one of the highlights of our visit to Revelstoke. Eric was a great guide, educating us about the dogs, the sport & the area throughout our marvelous ride (all while making us laugh out loud).The scenery was beautiful, and the dogs were a spectacle to behold. Much smaller than I was expecting, but so eager to be pulling a sled. We are extremely happy for booking this adventure with Eric & Revelstoke Dogsled Adventures (we were debating to do a dogsled ride in Revy vs Canmore ... and we're SO happy we went in Revy)Do not hesitate to book this if you can! Would highly recommend a daytime tour in order to view the beautiful landscapes
We had a great authentic experience on our dog sled tour with fantastic views of the Revelstoke Dam and surrounding mountains. If doing the afternoon session by mindful that it will be almost dark by the time you return due to the short daylight hours (in early January), however later in the season this would not be an issue.Thanks again for a great experience!
My mom, sister and I went on a dogsled tour with Revelstoke Dogsled Adventures today (Dec 20, 2022) & it was incredible! Our tour operators Crystal and Jeff were absolutely amazing, my sister and I got to drive the sled and they let us help get the dogs ready. As a dog person, it was fun to learn about mushing & to interact with the dogs. I can't recommend this operation enough. They were beyond amazing. Well worth it. Do your future self a favor and book with them NOW! You won't regret it!!
Eric was such an awesome guide! My partner and I had a sledding adventure the morning of our wedding, and he was so excited and thrilled for us! He made us feel so comfortable and allowed us to be part of the whole experience from tying up the dogs, to actually mushing! Highly recommend!! Do it, it’s well worth the money! You can tell he takes VERY good care of his dog team!
This was a highlight of our trip to Canada, and to say that it was a wonderful experience seems like an understatement. From the moment Eric greeted us, he provided fun and insightful facts about dog sledding as a sport and hobby. This made our entire experience all -the-more- unique and informative. We had the opportunity to meet his dogs, and to see that our anticipation for our sleigh ride was equally matched, or actually surpassed by his dogs, was such an exhilarating and touching moment.As we were the first tour of his season, we were also very fortunate to have his experienced training partner, Jeff, on our sleigh ride. Their willingness to share their experiences and answer any questions, providing background information about dog sledding (dog mushing tradition) brought a deeper appreciation for all they do.Eric was accommodating, with excellent communication and follow up. The experience was so authentic, and I believe it was a combination of his excellent "4 legged" crew, and his enthusiasm, passion and professionalism that really highlights a uniquely magical experience.We decided to drive to Revelstoke from Banff because we heard so much about this tour. It was the absolute best decision!!! We've heard the bigger commercial companies in Banff only take you on short 5k tours with limited views. Revelstoke Dogsled Adventures took us over 15k of untouched terrain and no one around us. I highly highly recommend this tour.
We were the first of the season, so no snow to be had, but the dogs still needed a workout so they were pulling us in an ATV. It was great interacting with the dogs - I was able to meet 40 dogs on my 40th birthday. I’d certainly recommend looking to go when it is snowy for the sled experience but as an early autumn run it was still a great time
Josh and Eve, the guides, were amazing. Extremely friendly and professional!The dogs are just great, friendly, fast and enjoying the adventure as much us ourselves!We really encourage everybody to try it!!Thank you so much for such a great time!
We had a wonderful afternoon dog sledding in Revelstoke today! Our guides were amazing (Jeff and Max) and included us in the process of getting the dogs geared up, explaining how things worked and let us take part in driving the sled as well. Would highly recommend this experience and company!!
A very special thanks to our guide Tina for this breathtaking tour through a Canadian winterwonderland and the eight sweet dogs Biggi, Diamond, Bow Tie, Lester, Walker, Abby, Snow and Rockie which pulled the sled.
Very fun half day dog sledding in revelstoke. Incredibly friendly dogs and friendly yet professional staff. I would definitely recommend these guys to anyone visiting. I had the pleasure of riding a sled with Jeff who was very attentive and talkative!
The weather prevented us from having our planned tour but Eric more than made up for it by providing an AWESOME Kennel Tour! We got up close and personal with the dogs and got some pretty great puppy kisses. Eric's love for his pets is apparent. We'll absolutely try again sometime!
Dog sledding with Josh was such an awesome experience !! 😍 Thank you for being so kind and for all the fascinating stories you shared with us. I would recommand to anyone a moment shared with that team 🔥 The dogs are so happy doing what they do and they just dont want to stop, that’s so amazing to watch ! Thank you guys !!
Our tour was unfortunately cancelled due to the brutal weather and that period being so busy. Between the cold weather snap and the many bookings the pups were exhausted and needed a break. Eric and Connie made the right decision in the best care for their dogs, but invited us to still come and meet the dogs and have a kennel tour, as well as meeting the new puppies! Getting to meet and play with each pup, as well as the puppies was an excellent experience. Eric and Connie were so kind to tour us through and tell us all about their passion of dog sledding. 100% will book again to go back for the full experience!
Went as a corporate event. Really appreciated that we were able to assist with the setup of the sleds and the driving of the dogs. Guides were interactive and engaging. Great value activity and wouldn't hesitate to go again.
My son and I had a blast! Eric and Jeff went out of their way to be sure we had a great time. The dogs are so loving and happy…and Eric’s hot chocolate bonus supplied by his 6 year old daughter was a splendid final touch as we watched the dogs get a hearty snack of meat soup…with refills! Thanks for a great time!🐶👍🏻❄️
We had an INCREDIBLE time with Revelstoke Dogsled Adventures! Our two kids instantly fell in love with all the very friendly dogs, and our two guides - Eric & Mike - not only provided lots of info on the culture of dogsledding, but also on the local area. It was a fantastic day that we will all remember!
Absolutely amazing experience! Very warm, competent lovely guides. They engaged us in getting the dogs ready which was very cool. The ride itself was just awesome! We dressed super warmly but all had freezing toes - common problem. Get those hand&foot warmer thingies. We brought our 7 & 11 year old girls and they loved it too. A special thanks for Jeff who was a fabulous guide : )
This is a must do!! The guides are great, knowledgeable and funny, and the dogs are cute loveable and ready to run!! They go nuts when they see the sleds and get hooked up!! Even at -20*c it was fun, beautiful and worth the experience 100%
Max & Mike are great! They are knowledgable, super friendly and big dog lovers. The pickup dropoff really makes a smooth experience as a whole. It was freezing this winter but luckily the instant body warmers helped us enjoy the tour. If you want to take photos/vids, remember to do it well before your phone dies in the cold. 100% recommend this experience!
An excellent adventure by a well run team, this was the highlight of my Christmas trip. I had an absolutely amazing time, Eric and his guides were very knowledgable and make sure that you have a great experience. It's obvious how much they care about each and every dog on the team, and that they take good care of them. Loved being allowed to pet & cuddle the dogs, and had no concerns at all about doing so, they were all very friendly!The scenery was stunning with glorious views of the various mountains and ranges, and whizzing along on a dog sled is a perfect way to see them.Make sure you wrap up warm. If you go out in -20'C (like we did) then I recommend investing in some of those instant hand and feet warmers.Thanks to Eric and the team for a perfect adventure!
My son and I really enjoyed our dogsled adventure! Our guides were very engaging and kind. The dogs were lovely and seemed so excited to take us for a ride! The scenery was gorgeous. It was a VERY cold day so my only suggestion to those considering this activity is to dress very warm and consider foot and hand warmers if it is -20 like it was when we went.
My family and I went on the dog sledding tour and loved it! The dogs were awesome and both guides were friendly, knowledgeable and went out of their way to make it a great experience for us. My daughter especially loved the chance to ride standing up with the guide on the back of the sled!
It was an amazing experience with Revelstoke Dogsled Adventures! Josh and Tina were awesome. Josh kept the conversations flowing and shared with us about how the huskies were cared for and his personal experience with dogsledding. The experience was very hands on and personal. We had the chance to help leash the huskies, pet them lots and even fed them warm soup after! Would highly recommend :)
We had way more fun than we could have imagined!!! HUGE shoutout to Mike and Jeff our two guides today they answered all our questions, walked us through the set up and pack up of gear, we got sooo many pats and cuddles with the dogs and had a blast chatting and learning about dog mushing life. Some breathtaking scenery ended with a beautiful sunset behind the snowy mountains. The dogs were super friendly and so happy to pull us around it made for such a great afternoon. Can’t recommend Mike and Jeff enough they are such good guys and really fun to be around.
I live in Revelstoke and I had a friend visiting from overseas. He wanted to experience the real Canadian winter! We went out dog sledding with Eric and his crew and we had such a blast. I couldn’t believe I haven’t try this before!It’s not just about the ride but the whole experience. My friend and I can’t stop smiling and laughing when we talked about that day. We once again created new memories. I would highly recommend it.
I made a last minute booking trying to find something fun & distracting for the kids to do being in town for a sedation dentistry on a holiday Monday. Eric & his family were so friendly, accommodating & informative. We definitely got some insight into the action of dog sledding. The kids & I had a blast!
WOW, The kennel tour was the best adventure we have experienced since we arrived in Canada from Ireland for our road trip across the Rockies. As it was early October the dogsledding experience was not yet operating so my husband and myself booked the kennel tour. What a treat! Eric is an amazing host and his 31 dogs love him to bits. We got up close with all the dogs and got to pet them all. We even got to accompany Eric on a puppy walk through the nearby forest. Book the tour and go with an open mind and an open heart. I am still buzzing. Thanks Eric and family.
We went on the kennel tour at the end of September. The best experience ever. All dogs are so adorable. Unlimited opportunities to pet for those who needs some dog love and hugs. Owner Eric told as so much about dogs and sledding. We had such a great time.
A wonderful experience! The pups were happy, healthy and well cared for and Eric was very knowledgeable and shared some great stories about his time competitive sledding. A one of a kind experience for a day off from skiing (and close to town)
We had such a great time with Eric, Max & the pups! Eric had so much knowledge to share and you can tell that he is very passionate about his dogs and what he does. 100% recommend booking a dog sled tour!
Just book this activity. You will not regret it! You may think it's a bit pricey, but if you can afford this rare and special treat, do it. It is worth every penny. We did our research to ensure the staff (especially the dogs!) are treated with love and respect. That is immediately evident. You get to help harness the pups (if you want), or you can stand back and enjoy their silliness. Our guide Max was wonderful! He was fun and interesting and we felt we were safe and in good hands. We hope to do this adventure again on a future trip to Revy, maybe when days are a bit longer to view the sunset.My only WARNING is that the ride can be very bumpy depending on the snow trail condition, so if you have any physical challenges or limitations, talk to the company for guidance.
Awesome experience with fantastic guides and their dogs. Great interactive experience where you get to help harnessing the animals, my wife and 2 children loved it. Picked up, had a great time on sleds and we were back in time for an afternoon ski!
Super fun day with Eric and the crew. Was a great tour with some fun hands on dog sledding 101, the dogs are cute and really friendly. A great way to spend some time in the woods and the hot chocolate at the end is always a winner. Highly recommend
Such an amazing experience! The dogs are just so wonderful, so happy! Just adorable. The team are incredibly professional and our guide Sandy was able to share so much knowledge with us about the dogs and the sport. A must do experience in Revelstoke!
Had a great experience with this dogsledding adventure. I felt it was more unique with the dogs and guide compared to another one here in BC we did last year. We even got to help tether them in and feed the dogs their protein stew. The views and path were amazing! Highly recommend Adam!
Such an incredible experience! Very hands on and beautiful scenery. Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate.My friend was visiting from Australia and dog sledding was by far her favourite adventure here!We were both extremely grateful for the opportunity! The dogs are beautiful and very well looked after. Very fond memories!!!
I had an awesome time today! Very hands on. The pups are super friendly! Was a beautiful trail with awesome fews. Eric knows what he is doing, and it was really awesome to help harness the dogs and attach them to the line. Never thought I would be doing that🙂10/10.
Had such an awesome time out dog sledding with Eric and his guides!! They are so knowledgeable and passionate about their work. The dogs absolutely love to run, they are all very happy dogs treated very well and humanely! Had a great 3 hour tour with hot chocolate at the end, 10/10 will be going back again!!!
This was such a rad experience! It was super hands on and such a beautiful ride. Eric was the man. Such a honest and friendly guy who truly loves what he does. You’ve gotta go experience it for yourself and hang with all the pups because these dogs LOVE to run. Go treat yourself to some fun and make everyone involved happy!
