Sled dog racing and recreational dog sledding in Maine

A team of sled dogs run along a snowy trail, pulling a woman standing on a sled wearing an orange racing vest

We’ll learn about sled dog races, such as the famous CanAm Crown International in Fort Kent. And we’ll find out how to go on a guided sled dog adventure.
