The tour will begin with a brief instruction and then you will take off on your journey through the forest surrounding the Ranch aboard the Dog Sled. Passengers will stop and explore authentic Teepees in a Teepee encampment while learning about the Aboriginal way of life and how dogsledding has played its roll in Alberta’s History. A taste of Bannock (Native Fry Bread) with maple syrup and hot chocolate is offered around an open campfire. Deer are often encountered on this tour and occasionally moose or elk. Wolf and cougar tracks are common as well as Snowshoe Hare and Coyote signs.
A stop to see the Bison in our Buffalo Viewing Paddock is next. Here the resident herd with the Bull and his cows, along with this years’ calves are available for close-up viewing and pictures. The Trappers Cabin, just up the trail, offers a little history of the Kananaskis valley where you will see artifacts from bygone trapping days! Claw marks from our summer visitors, the Grizzly bears, are also pointed out.
Once again climb aboard your Sled with the Dogs raring to go for your final leg of the trip back to Boundary Ranch.
