Day 3 - Mush Away
This remote location deep in the Rockies is the perfect setting for an experience as rewarding as it is iconically Canadian. On our dog sledding adventure you’ll be guided through the techniques and when you are ready, mush your own team of Alaskan huskies. If you prefer a more leisurely approach to snow travel, sit back and let your sled pull you along the trails as you admire the beautiful forest that surrounds you.

Dinner at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is always exceptional and you can choose from a range of restaurants including Italian at the Orzo Trattoria or local Elk & Ale Pot Pie in the Great Hall.
