The thrill of travelling our majestic back country by dog.
Snowy Owl’s expertise in the sport of sled dog touring is unsurpassed! With beautiful, traditional sled dog breeds you are sure to experience an authentic, hands-on Canadian dog sledding experience. Being the first sled dog touring company in Canmore (just 20 minutes from Banff) and the Bow Valley, company founder Connie and Charles Arsenault created the original dog sledding experience over a quarter of a century ago. With their trailhead nestled between frozen lakes, frosty streams, glaciers, and magnificent mountain ranges, you will be awed by the spectacular beauty while immersed in Mother Nature’s magical frozen landscape.
Snowy Owl remains a small, family-owned, and operated business and its owners are fully involved in all aspects of efficient and friendly operations. You’ll see owners guiding sleds and guests, instructing tours, managing the kennels, taking reservations, and supervising each and every process of their business.

We suggest, “The Ultimate Experience”.
Their signature, self-driven sled allows friends and family to truly embrace their inner musher! After a comprehensive introduction and instruction, your pack of husky heroes will lead you down the trail as you follow closely behind one of their professional instructors. Guests can also choose to join an instructor-driven sled where they can either sit back and relax as a passenger or share the driving with the instructor!
