What a way to ring in my 30th birthday – an incredible experience at Winterdance Dog Sled Tours in Haliburton.

We took the 2.5 hour drive on one of the coldest days of the winter, approximately -25C up north. Brrr! To stay warm, I wrapped up in many, many layers of course! But unfortunately, the cold still got to my toes after the 2-hour experience.

As mentioned, the tour at Winterdance lasted just over 2 hours, and included a training session, a meet-and-greet with your dogs, and full speed ahead for the sledding! The great aspect about this tour group is they take the time to train you. They allow you a lot of beginner freedom.

We had five dogs on our sled, and the trails were a lot more challenging than I expected. As you know, I went dog sledding in the Yukon (read HERE) which was on much more flat grounds.

BONUS! To my surprise, Winterdance Dog Sled Tours even bought a cake for me and the other participant celebrating a birthday — what a lovely surprise! Making my 30th birthday experience even more memorable.
