The dogs love it. It is their favorite part of the day! You show them their harness and they are they are the happiest of dogs. You don't think you can see them any happier until you see them start to run!
Two adults and a guide can fit on one sled. Three children can fit on one sled with a guide. A child is anyone under the age of 12. The sled weight limit is 400 pounds. In some cases, you can fit a adult with two children if they are small enough to fit in the sled and are under the weight limit.
Not really. There are two places to situate yourself on the sled. The first one is in the sled basket. The basket has a windproof shell that zips you in, and inside the shell is a negative 40 degree sleeping bag/blanket that you can wrap up in. The second is on the back of the sled with the guide. The sled itself blocks most of the wind, and the movement of your body on the sled keeps you warm.
We recommend the Wolf Cove Inn. It is located just 10 minutes away from Poland, ME. To find out more, please visit their website: http://wolfcoveinn.com.
It is customary to tip your guide if you had a nice trip. 10%-20% is typical, but it is your choice.
