Up to 14 sled dogs driven by a musher whisk passengers along private forest trails. In fact, two- to three-hour rides cover 8–15 miles within the trail system of White Mountain National Forest. During the longer outings, visitors learn just how athletic the dogs are and how mushers handle them—and get the opportunity to climb onto the sled’s runners to try their hand at driving the dog team alongside the guide. See more information here.

During the Hybrid Dog Sledding package, guests spend half of each day on a scenic 10- to 12-mile dog sled ride into White Mountain National Forest. They also learn how to handle the dogs, as well as feed and care for them, from a skilled musher. The second half of each day is spent on recreational activities such as Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, and relaxing. Lodging is provided at the Telemark Inn; this package also includes all meals from breakfast on the first day to lunch on the second day.

The Intro to Dog Sledding package is similar to the one above, except guests develop mushing skills in order to eventually drive their own 4- to 6-dog team along the trails. See more information here.

New England Dogsledding

Along the border of New Hampshire and Maine, the White Mountains loom above the landscape. As some of the most unspoiled mountains left in New England, they hold plenty of picturesque secrets. However, they guard them jealously: many of the mountains' most scenic points remain inaccessible by car. That's where New England Dogsledding—owned by lifelong adventurers and animal lovers Steve and Leo—comes in.

The company's pack of Alaskan huskies undertake wintry expeditions into White Mountain National Forest and some of the area's other hard-to-reach regions. That includes Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge, where sleds often share more than 60 miles of groomed trails with moose, foxes, ermine, and beavers. This intrepid spirit, coupled with Steve and Leo's dedication to making sure each pup stays happy and healthy, has visitors traveling from far and wide—including other countries—to take a sled ride, learn how to drive a dog team, and stay overnight in the rustic Telemark Inn Wilderness Lodge.

One of New England Dogsledding's unique offerings earned it an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America. Skijoring looks a bit like waterskiing, except the sport takes place on forest trails and the skier's means of locomotion are extremely athletic sled dogs rather than a motorboat.
