White Mountain vacation? Love it! Dog sled rides? Bring it on!

New Hampshire is not Alaska, but we don’t mind. Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel in the White Mountains is home to 80 sled dogs who are itching to get into harness and take you on a ride that you won’t forget. Dog sled rides take place year-round (in a dog cart with a full harnessed team in the warm seasons). Visitors get to greet the dogs and watch the details of the harnessing and all the prep. If you are looking for a unique thing to do on vacation, you’ve found it here. Also, in summer the business offers river rafting with a licensed Maine guide.
