Adventure Retreat Details in Nutshell – Women only, small, limited trip size. You are cared for from the moment you land to when we take you back to the airport, BUT don’t expect a cushy, bonbon-tasting party…we’ll be hiking, kayaking, rafting, playing hard and laughing the nights away on each of these spectacular, remote adventure retreats!

Dog Sledding & Winter Wonderland Festival

January 30 – February 4, 2024

Ely, Minnesota


Step outside the norm and into your own dog sledding adventure

Drive Your Own Sled Dog Team

This exclusive trip features the unique opportunity to drive a sled dog team on your own for three consecutive days. You will explore over 70 miles of forest trails and pristine frozen lakes, gaining new mushing skills each day. Enjoy the comforts of a lakeside northwoods lodge at the end of each day, where a warm fireplace and savory meals complement an active day on the trail. The third day of sledding culminates with an exciting night run under the starry winter sky. The night run is a favorite of our guests. Experience the feeling of flying without leaving the ground. This is your escape from the ordinary!

The first night we’ll spend the first evening in Duluth exploring this old, port city on Lake Superior. We will stay in Canal Park on Lake Superior and be able to straddle Minnesota and Wisconsin just to say we hit two states!

The next day, we will head to Ely and stay in the Grand Ely Lodge for the rest of our stay while we dogsled and explored. We’ll rent a car, and there will be a lot of driving since the lodge is 30 snowy miles away from the kennels/sleds.
