Dogsledding Capitol

Ely, MN, United States
18 Kudos
Minnesota is one of the top states for dogsledding. My kids have been on dog sleds twice in Minnesota, both were activities at two different lodges we were staying at, but the top spot in the state for dog sledding is probably Ely, MN, which is home to many dog sledding companies and has been called the Dog Sled Capitol of the US. I rode one lap with my kids the last time we went. It was on freshly fallen snow and it was a smooth ride. It was something fun and different to try. There are several places in Minnesota that will take you out on dogsleds whether you are solo or with a large group. I have listed a few of the best below.
