Our Maine dogsleding tour trips are "hands-on" experiences in which you'll be driving your own dogsled powered by a team of our friendly, handsome Canadian Inuit dogs. Our guides will accompany you to provide complete training, help out as needed, point out signs of wildlife and sights of scenic interest and share Northwoods lore. No experience is needed. Persons ages 5-75 have enjoyed these trips. Our dogteams and guides are busy most days December to March so please book in advance.   Snowmobiler

Dogsledding day trips

All trips meet at Northwoods Outfitters in Greenville, where your guide will meet you and make sure your clothing & boots are adequate. You will then be led by your guide Steve and escorted to the trails. These trips all begin a short drive from downtown Greenville on pristine wilderness trails leading into our beautiful wilderness.

We will provide you with trail beverages & snacks as needed and take you through our "Dogsledding 101" orientation which includes learning about the history of dog sledding, arctic exploration with trap line dog teams, safety and control of your team. You'll then head to the kennel to meet all the dogs and to help-if you'd like-in harnessing your own team.

The big moment arrives as the guide launches your sled and off you go, riding or driving your own dog team on wilderness trail. Feel the excitement as your team pulls you through the snow covered trails, blanketed in the silence of nature. Around every corner the possibility seeing wildlife including the Maine Moose exists.

Along the way, your guide will point out wildlife signs and sites of scenic interest for photos, provide rest stops, bathroom & beverage breaks as needed and (on full day trips) we will go to a remote sporting camp for a warm cup of hot chocolate and delicious meal.

Our trail system includes a variety of scenic options-hilly woodland terrain, sheltered bogs, -and trails that are both easy and challenging.

Dogsledding overnight tours

For that extra special adventure be sure to ask about a nighttime dog sledding adventure. Tours leave around sunset and last 4 hours. Headlights are provided and all trips are led as guided rides. Moonlight tours add an extra-special ambiance to your dogsled ride and will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
How to prepare for your trip

Suitable clothing includes: thermalwear (top & bottom), sweater or fleece top, parka & snow pants, warm hat & mitts, neck gaitor or scarf, sunglasses, warm socks and insulated snowboots.

Everything you need can be purchased or rented from our store in downtown Greenville. The key items-parka, snow pants & insulated snowboots--can be rented separately or as a package at. (i.e., full package rental rates $25) but be sure to call the store to reserve these items in advance and be sure to pick them up at the store before coming out to the kennel.

You're welcome to bring your own water bottle, thermos and snack food; or we can provide those at no charge. Video, digital and film cameras all work quite well on our trips despite the winter conditions.


No special fitness or experience is needed, but please note that persons over 250 pounds may find it difficult to balance on the sleds and kids 5 & under sometimes prefer a short ride rather than a half day or more of sledding.

Rates and reservations

Reservations must be made and confirmed in advance by phone. A 50% non-refundable deposit by credit card is required. Balance of payment can be made when you meet at Northwoods Outfitters by cash, check or credit card. (Gratuities are appreciated by the guides for a job well done.)

  • Half day trips (a.m. 9-1 or p.m. 1-5) call for pricing

Please be advised that you will be engaged in an adventure activity and traveling on remote wilderness trails where there is an element of risk. While our day trip participants have never sustained significant injuries, we do as a matter of protocol ask all participants to sign a liability release upon arriving at the store.
