Dog Sledding In Quebec City ~ Where To Go
Although I’m Canadian, as of February 2014, I had yet to go dog-sledding. It’s a little odd as dog-sledding is a major activity in this country, but I just had never got around to it. When I saw the activity listed in our agenda for the “Frozen” press event in Quebec City, I was completely stoked! Finally, I’d get my chance to see what the hubbub was all about.
We visited Pourveoirie du Lac Beauport in the late afternoon and received the full run-down by one of the guides at the establishment. He was extremely thorough and gave us a full 101 on what to/what not to do. After hearing the entire introduction, I was incredibly nervous and asked my friend to steer first. We were given the option to switch half way and I tagged her as “it.”
The dogs were pretty excited when we arrived, raring to go! For the first half of the ride, we were going a little slower than we’d expected, but once our guided added one of his dogs to our team, we started to really pick up speed! I took over for the other half of the ride and what a ride it was!
We rode through the forest on groomed trails, up and down hills, around tight corners and back again. So much fun! I would love to try this again with my own kids.
If you’re in Quebec City and are looking to try dog-sledding, I definitely recommend checking out Pourveoirie du Lac Beauport in the Jacques-Cartier zone of Quebec.
