This exclusive, always private dog sled ride takes couples out to our rustic camp located in the Little Flat Tops for a gourmet dinner catered by a local restaurant and presented by your guide. You will be surrounded by the aspens lit by evening star light reflecting on the snow. This is an especially unique activity during a full moon! We have a variety of food options and are more than willing to cater to your individual needs and preferences. After dinner, we will serve a 5-star dessert with a warm drink and then load up in the sled to head back out on the night trail. The ride is longer after dinner, and as it can be quite cold and late, this trip is not recommended for children under 12. We will make exceptions in some cases. No more than 6 people who must be from the same party, as this trip is always private, will be permitted to book. You must call to make this reservation.
