Our Siberian huskies love meeting new people and making friends. They also enjoy going out for harnessed hikes, sniffing the trees, rolling in the grass and working on their directional commands.
What better way to enjoy the summer than to combine the two for a husky hike!
Guided by one of our kennel staff, hike with one of our furry friends to MacDonald Lake. There you'll have the opportunity to cool off, go for a swim, and enjoy an optional packed lunch from The Cookhouse. (No swimming during the early spring/late fall tours. No packed lunch during the early spring tours).
Husky Hikes depart Friday-Sunday at 11:30 am and are approximately 2.5 hours long. Advanced reservations are required and can be made online, over the phone or in person. Fees below are subject to HST.
- $40.00 per individual
- $85.00 per family (2 adults and their children)
- $10 per person for Optional Lunch (not available during early spring tours).
NOTE: Tours may be subject to short notice cancellation if the temperature is 30+ degrees Celsius or in the event of severe weather.
11:30 am Friday - Sunday, from May Long Weekend until Thanksgiving. **2021 tours will run April 10-18. Summer dates to be updated in April.
We ask guests to arrive 10-15 minutes before the tour. Advanced booking is required.
Please inquire with our staff if you would like to hike with our huskies outside of these dates or with a larger group.
Make sure to dress for the weather, and wear appropriate footwear for hiking (hiking or running shoes recommended). Bring your bathing suit and towel for an opportunity to cool off in the lake with the huskies.
Guests are advised to avoid wearing white, clothing with dangling pieces, and flip flops. Be prepared to get a bit of dog hair and possibly some dirt on you. Our pooches shed quite a lot and like to get up close.
Sunscreen and bug spray are recommended.
Guests must be able to stand and walk under their own power along forest trails. Be advised that our huskies are used to pulling sleds and may also pull you while on leash.
For the health and safety of our dogs (and yours), we do not permit guests to bring their own dogs on this hike. We also ask that if any of your pets at home are ill, that you postpone your visit to a later date.
Please do not bring treats for the dogs. New food can be very hard on their tummies.
We advise guests to wash their hands after the hike.
