Experience Dogsledding in Montana! Based at Chico Hot Springs Resort and Day Spa, located just 30 miles north of Yellowstone National Park, and 26 miles south of Livingston, MT. Drive your own team, or sit back and let our guides take you on an adventure of a lifetime! Outdoor fun for the whole family! Choose from three trek options: Tenderfoot (intro trek), Yukon (1/2 Day which includes a picnic lunch on trail), or Denali (Full Day & the guides grill steak and trout on trail!).

The people who run Absaroka Dogsled Treks are as happy and energetic as their wonderful dog teams! This trip was as fun as we expected, and even more beautiful. Just a little background for those not familiar with the area: my husband and I were staying in Gardiner, Montana, at the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Absaroka Dogsled Treks... More

Well, we checked "dog sledding" off the bucket list with a trip to Chico Hot Springs. My parents and husband and I opted for the Yukon trek today. Hannah was super sweet and helpful at check-in. Our guide Tony really loved the dogs, and he was such a kind soul. The dogs really seemed to be enjoying themselves, and I... More

This was on my bucket list. My mom and did this adventure together in the middle of February and it was fabulous. We were staying right at Chico Hot Springs so it was very convenient for us. Matt was our guide, he drove us and the dogs to the trail and answered a number of questions from us. We watched... More

My husband and I did the Yukon Trek. We were staying at Chico Hot Springs so we just had a quick walk to the trucks. Tony, our wonderful guide, drove us and the dogs to the trail. We watched as he harnessed the dogs and hooked them to the sleds. We rode on a tandem sled, with me sitting, my... More

This was our first time to go dog sledding and it will not be the last! It was simply amazing. We hit the lottery and got to manage our own team of dogs and sled for our half day Yukon Trek booking. Basically hitting the lottery! Hannah was so helpful during the booking and preparing for the day. Tony and... More

A really great experience. My wife and I did the half-day trek and got to man our own sled of dogs. It was a really great experience and worth every penny.

This is a must! We did the Yukon Trek. Owners are wonderful people. They have most, if not all, of the gear you need. Just check when booking. The dogs are something special! You will be right there with them as they are each harnessed and hooked up to the sled. You can "drive" the sled or ride. Scenery is... More

This was my first visit to Montana, and the dog sledding was a highlight of my visit. They take very good care of the dogs, who are all so excited to go out for a run in the snow! You get to drive your own team, which is easier than it looks, since the dogs know the route pretty well.... More

We visited Chico Hot Springs as part of our Tauck tour in January, so we came in a day early to take a dogsled trek. Wow, what a blast! There were 5 guests and 4 mushers on our trek. We chose the Yukon which is a 10 mile round trip with a stop for a picnic lunch at the halfway... More

I did the full day Denali trek with Mat and his dogs and it was absolutely amazing. To have your own team is a thrilling experience. Mat takes you clearly and effectively through the steps of beginners mushing. To feel in sync with the dogs and experience nature from a dogsled is truly magical. Mat and Hannah love their dogs,...
