Mush your own! Unlike most dogsledding outfits, Base Camp Dogsledding, provides a “hands on” approach allowing you, the participant, the opportunity to drive your own team of our friendly and hard working Inuit Sled Dogs. You can become as involved with the experience as you choose, which also includes harnessing and caring for your team. All of our trips are customized to your wants, needs, and abilities. Base Camp Bigfork takes pride in sharing the winter landscape of Northwest Montana with others. We are here to enhance your appreciation for winter and the environment in which we travel.

Real Deal Dogsledding. While no previous experience is needed to join in our dogsled adventures, we do rely on participants to be physically active for everyone to enjoy the day. With two people per sled, one as musher and one as passenger, we can accommodate different levels of ability but all participants need to be active and engaged. If you do not have the equivalent physical ability that it takes to ride a bike you will not thrive on our trips.
