Going to the dogs in the Northwest Territories

Up on the cusp of the Arctic Ocean is one of the world's most beloved dogsled-tour companies. At Arctic Adventure Tours, expert dog handlers take you "mushing" with a team of rare all-white huskies – across frozen lakes beneath the shimmering Aurora, along the Mackenzie River where caribou graze, and through the spindly boreal forest at the edge of the Barrenlands. What's it like to work with these graceful ghost-dogs of Inuvik? Here, a veteran musher gives you a peek into his daily routine – one of the most distinctive jobs, in one of the most unique places, with some of the most adorable "co-workers" in the world.
