Under the helm of an experienced sled pilot and guide, participants learn commands and steering on more than 15 kilometres of sandy trails in carts designed to train sled dogs during the off season. At the end of the outing, groups retire to a cabin where they can gather around an open outdoor bonfire or retreat inside to sip hot chocolate.<p>
Operating on the trails will host the 2015 Dryland Dog-Racing World Championships, Timberland Tours employs experienced guides and 40 canines to propel adventure-seekers on year-round excursions of Pontiac County. Guides operate from headquarters in a rustic wooden cabin, which hosts customers inside or outside on the open porch. An adjacent barbecue and bonfire pits often blaze with friendly flames, and trophy and photo displays inside the cabin chronicle sledding victories and awards for particularly memorable ghost stories. In winter months, two-person sleds carry riders down wooded trails, and in warm weather, lightweight wagons send visitors soaring along on dog-carting trips. Timberland Tours fuels its sleds using highly trained teams of Alaskan pointer, husky, and greyhound mixes.
