Algonquin 3 Day Dogsledding Adventure

"2 people per sled, 6 dogs per team, heated wall tents"


Clothing Suggestions

Voyageur Quest recommends that you bring suitable clothing for the cold so that you enjoy your time outside.

Sleeping Bag Please bring a mummy bag rated at ?7c or warmer

Winter Boots: Winter boots work better than hiking boots because warmth is more important than support. Boots with a removal inner liner work best, as the inside of a boot often gets wet and can be dried overnight. A Sorel Snowlion is an example of such a boot. If possible, try to get a boot that isn?t too heavy as mushing involves some running.

Clothes: Avoid cotton! It does not offer any warmth when wet. A layering system works best! You might be warm/hot when moving and cooling down rapidly while stopping for lunch. Polyesters, wool, and fleece make excellent winter fibres and you can adjust your body temperatures easily by removing or adding layers!
The first layer (next to your skin) absorbs perspiration to keep you warm and dry - (polyester)
The second layer(s) provide insulation. They need to retain your body heat and yet not restrict movement- (Pile and Synchilla)
The third layer offers protection from the wind- (Gortex). A tight weave nylon or 60/40 (cotton/nylon blend) is also very good. The more wind proof a garment, the less breathable it will be.
The fourth layer offers the most insulation and is worn when you are inactive. An insulated third layer will also do the job.

Specific clothing items...
Long underwear (top and bottom) - preferably polyester, cappeline, or lycra, warm sweater - wool or fleece, wind jacket and pants, lots of wool socks, warm wool or fleece hat, scarf/balaclava or other face protection, warm mitts and UV sunglasses.

We also recommend you bring a flashlight, water bottle, towel and daypack. If you are on an overnight trip ? please bring a backpack (duffel bag for dogsled expeditions).

Please call our office at (416) 486-3605 with any other questions. Don?t forget to bring a camera and send us a copy of your best photographs. We offer a free trip at the end of the year for the best photo!
