Unfortunately we experienced brutally cold weather which made it difficult to take pictures of what was otherwise a very enjoyable trip. The dog sled ride was sometimes like a ride down Disneyland's Matterhorn, other times just quietly beautiful. Our dog guides Risa and Sean were helpful in every way, certainly would not think of doing this without them. The yurt was small but cozily comfortable. And the site leader Jacki was exceptionally friendly and helpful. I only wish we had one more day for x-country skiing - Jacki took us on a wonderful excursion to view local historic Indian pictographs and the snowy trip was magical.

Be prepared for bone-chilling temperatures on this trip, but it is so worth it! The accommodations at the YMCA Camp du Nord are very clean and comfortable, the food is plentiful and nourishing and tasty, especially the breads which are baked right there. The dog sledding is an amazing experience. I was somewhat intimidated by the idea of it, but it was a lot easier than I expected. The yurt overnight was fun, and the sleeping bags they provided were expedition quality and kept us comfortable all night long.

We really enjoyed our dog sledding adventure. Camp du Nord was beautiful, as was the Superior National Forest. This was an exhilarating and challenging trip. We highly recommend it. Susan & Al from Knoxville, TN
