Fern Glen Inn • www.ferngleninn.blogspot.com
Winter weather is off to a good start! Lots of snow and below-zero temperatures mean our local dog sledding ranch will soon be gearing up for guided dog sledding excursions near Huntsville, Muskoka. It's a popular adventure for our guests, and why not? There's nothing like mushing through the woods, driving your own sled and team of eager dogs.
Dog sledding is available throughout the winter season, usually starting in the last half of December and going through until the end of March or whenever the snow melts.
The Christmas - New Year's holiday is a particularly busy time for dog sledding, so advance bookings are strongly recommended. During the holidays, choose from guided 1-hour or 3-hour dog sledding excursions. For more information about what to expect, you can read my post on dog sledding in Muskoka here.
Add dog sledding to any stay at Fern Glen Inn this winter.
