Dog Sled Rides & Tours

We open to book Rides on November 1st, 2019 but we have Kennel Tours available, that you can book now.

“THE MUSHER EXPERIENCE”  –  for 2 to 4 people (Due to changes in our kennel, this is all we are offering this year).

Learn to mush on your own! Be a Musher for the Day!!!!

Enjoy more time on the trail with Tim, Gina & their four-legged athletes… You’ll spend time visiting the kennel where you’ll learn to harness, all about the sleds, how to hook up dogs, and which dog positions to put the dogs.  After that, you will get to drive with a trainer on a special touring double sled that allows guests to stand and driveThen, you’ll get your own team and enjoy driving your own dog sled team for two rides on the beautiful and adventurous trails. 

All rides start at 10:30am and usually finish around 2:00pm.  Lunch is served around the campfire between rides. 

We are the only Guide Service in Northern Lower Michigan that allows the musher to drive the sled.   The rides are about 3 miles long, and you will travel with a guide behind you to coach you through the ride.  You will have an experience you won’t forget!

Each musher will get one guided ride and then they will Drive their own sled 2 more times.  If there are 4 people, then each person will get a half guided ride, at the beginning and only get to take their own sled once.  This is only for those that are physically fit and want the adventure of a lifetime! 

You will be driving a traditional authentic dog sled with 2, 3, 4, or 6 dogs, depending on snow conditions!

Price:  $350 per person ($350 each or $700) and we only take 2-4 people a day.    If only 1 Person $600 .  This works best for a couple, or two friends or 2 family members.  If you are a family of 4, we can mix and match and give half rides and then each person can take 1 dog sled team by themselves.  You need to be over 14 years old, and be a competent and physically fit, person.  We can offer a 1 dog team for a younger child.

Example: 

2 Adults:  $700 for 2 guided rides and 4 unguided rides.  Each adult will get 1 guided ride and 2 unguided rides plus lunch.

4 Adults: $700 for 2 guided rides (Half ride for each adult).  Each adult also gets 1 unguided ride for 3 miles.

Please realize, we will be out in the cold for up to 3 hours, so having young children will be difficult.  Guests MUST be physically fit.   We are happy to adjust to help your party have an optimal experience.

Please see FAQ page for specifics and restrictions, including fitness levels.

Reservation Donation/Deposit to book an Adventure: In order to book a ride with Shemhadar, there is a $350 Non Refundable Donation/Deposit to the Kennel.  Do not make the deposit until instructed when you’ve made your reservation by phone. There is a great deal of time and effort in order to coordinate all the rides and reservations, and a year-round expense to feed and look after the dogs.  If for some reason you cancel, this will help the kennel with dog food and expenses.  If we cancel due to weather or unforeseen issues they you will receive $300 Donation/Deposit back.  $50 will stay with the kennel to help support the dogs.
