The ultimate winter adventure at the very heart of Canadian history and heritage.

Over March Break, make the most of the snowy season with a classically Canadian adventure through a wild winter wonderland! Our popular and iconic Dog Sledding Journey is the perfect way to get out, look in, and experience all the magic of a great Canadian winter. Challenge yourself and accomplish something spectacular as you explore the renowned beauty of Ontario’s Algonquin Park. Along the way, take a well-deserved break to sit by the fire or cuddle up to the exceptionally well-cared-for dogs who call this remarkable place home. 

Outward Bound Canada’s Journey courses are designed to help you take charge of your life and realize what you are capable of.  Each experience begins with a physical journey – stepping out of the comforts of day-to-day routines and into an environment that may be very new, adventurous and exciting, but also foreign and uncertain. Facing these changes helps to bring out new perspectives. Using the challenges of the course as a starting-point, our skilled instructors will teach you how transfer the skills learned on course to your life at home. These important life skills included caring for yourself, taking responsibility for your choices, expressing your needs and opinions with confidence, and working with others in your life at home.

Your adventure begins when you meet your group in Huntsville, Ontario.  From there, you will be taken to the “Sunday Lake Dog Trails” in Algonquin Park. Not only do these trails have an incredible history in Canada, but the scenic route offers over 40km of mushing through mixed and hardwood forests.  At night, after a day filled with activity, you will put down your snowshoes, settle into our canvass-walled prospector tents, warmed by the heat of a wood-burning stove and sung to sleep by the howls of a team of sled dogs. 

Get in touch with your Canadian roots and challenge your limits while learning some of the most long-standing wilderness traditions  – dog sledding, snowshoeing and winter camping – on ancient trails that Aboriginal communities, prospectors and early settlers had once travelled. This course also includes a 24-hour solo experience where you will prove your skills while being supervised (from a distance!) by our experienced instructional team.  Often described as the most transformative part of the experience, your solo will give you the chance to reflect on earlier conversations from the expedition, absorb important realizations about yourself, and leave behind anything that will no longer serve you going forward.
