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.

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
