Operate your own kicksled while being pulled by a husky on Yellowknife’s beautiful Great Slave Lake. Tours are available daily and include pre-tour orientation, a 45-minute adventure, and a visit to the ice caves (December - February) and the Snow Castle (March). Tours finish with a hot drink at our Old Town log cabin.
A kicksled, or spark (meaning “kick in Norwegian), has a pair of parallel, two-metre long skate blades with a footplate on each blade. Gripping the handlebars, riders scoot along by kicking with one foot, as if on a scooter made for ice. The task of kicking along is made much easier with the assistance of your husky.
