Kingmik Dog Sled Tours, Lake Louise

#4 of 14 in Wildlife in Banff National Park
Must see · Nature / Wildlife Tour · Hidden Gem · Wildlife Area
It did not take long to convince Parks Canada that this would be a wonderful activity to offer visitors. As there is no other dog sledding in the area, it was an oddity indeed to see a dog team whisking people off the door step of Chateau Lake Louise. But the allure caught on quickly and today dogsledding is one of the most popular activities in the park.

Kingmik still remains the intimate and personable feel of the early days. We consider ourselves small but mighty, with just 50 amazing dogs, and 5 full time professional dog mushers.

We are the only dogsled company operating in Banff National Park, giving us exclusive rights to the trail systems.

Every sled is guided, which amounts to a guest to guide ratio of 2:1, and we run no more than 5 sleds per tour time. We feel that this enables guests to best experience the silent grace and beauty of dog mushing, amidst one of the most beautiful landscapes of the world.

  • My husband and I were at Chateau Lake Louise for a three day "staycation" in mid December and discovered, prior to our arrival, the Kingmik Dog Sled Tour. Sooooo glad we did. I cannot say enough...  more »
  • A wonderful experience. As a dog owner, I was very impressed with how healthy and well trained the dogs were. The guides were very happy to tell us all about their selection processes, care of their dogs, and adoption process when they retire. It was clear the dogs were very happy and well loved. The tour itself was picturesque and very enjoyable. Worth the price, for sure.
  • Such a great experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. She was very interesting telling her stories of her travels with her own dogs. Would highly recommend this to everyone!!
