Northwest Dog Sled Adventures, near Leavenworth

Got a thrill-seeker in the fam? For a super unique winter adventure straight out of a Jack London novel, give dog sledding a try. With Northwest Dog Sled Adventures, the area’s only dog-sledding, you can get up close and personal with a team of gorgeous huskies that will pull the flying sled at hair-raising speeds. This outing is not for the faint of heart!

The seven-mile tour starts at a state Sno-Park west of Leavenworth (you’ll need a Sno-Park pass to park). Bundle up as this ride gets cold — be sure to layer up in weather-appropriate gear including gloves, hats and boots. Dog-loving kiddos (and adults!) can learn about the hard-working sled dogs along the way, and get the chance to be as involved as they want in caring for and watering the dogs after the ride. Don’t forget your phone (and a Go-Pro if you have one) for documenting this amazing ride!

Where: Fish Lake/ Lake Wenatchee Sno-Park

When: Tours run starting mid-December to April 1; use the form on the website's contact page to submit a reservation request (and include the number of people in your party).

Cost: $165 per adult and $110 per child, plus a Sno-Park pass for parking. A 50% deposit is required to confirm a reservation.
