Sundog Adventures is a year-round experiential tour company based in Yellowknife's Old Town. 

During the winter we offer kicksled tours (with huskies), and cater to small group events with our Kicksled and Party Tour that includes use of our cedar sauna, heated wall tent and bonfire. Tours are available daily from December to April. 

In the summer (June to September), we offer boating and storytelling tours within Yellowknife Bay. Visit old gold mine sites, have a picnic on an island with a local storyteller and finish your adventure enjoying homemade ice cream at our Trading Post Ice Cream Cafe. We will personalize group itineraries and customize events to make your experience a memorable one! Contact us for more information or to discuss your adventure.

Kicksledding on Great Slave Lake

Your adventure begins at the Sundog Adventures log cabin located in historic Old Town on Back Bay. You will take part in a brief orientation session to understand your kicksled and the dog pulling you.  You will learn to use your kicksled alone at first, then with your dog.  When you are ready, you and the rest of the group will venture straight onto the frozen Yellowknife Bay.  You will stop en-route for pictures, a visit to Yellowknife’s Ice Caves, then trek back to the log cabin to warm up, relax, share stories and enjoy a warm beverage. During March we have an option of visiting the Snow Castle!


Daily tours: 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm
Meet at 4 Lessard Drive
