New England Dogsledding is located on the Maine and New Hampshire border of the White Mountain National Forest. It is home to the racing and recreational kennel of beautiful, well cared for, very friendly and athletic Alaskan Husky Sled Dogs.
One Hour Rides - these rides are both educational and great fun for adults and kids alike. The rides are a beautiful way to experience the power and grace of these very special animals. Being whisked across the meadows and into the private forest trail system on a Winter's day by the power of friendly canine athletes. You will be invigorated and uplifted by the unique energy of these dogs.
National Forest Tours - these are longer trips into the White Mountain National Forest trail systems, usually between 8-15 miles in length depending upon current snow conditions. These longer runs give the dogs a chance to really stretch out and cover some ground showing you their amazing athletic abilities, while allowing you more time to get up on the "runners" with your Musher Guide and learn how to handle and drive a large team of 10-14 good looking, great moving sled dogs. A relaxed outting into beautiful mountain scenery propelled by the power of dog.
The National Forest Trips are designed for folks who want to get into the art and beauty of Dogsledding and at the same time see some spectacular North-East mountain scenery.
Sleds hold up to 3 people and tours depart from the Telemark Inn, Bethel, Maine.
