Last week I had the privilege of experiencing a staycation with AIR MILES in my very own city, which included dog sledding in Banff! Even though this particular project was mostly captured on Velvet & Vino’s Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, I had many followers ask me to share more about the dog sledding. So with that said, I’ve decided to create a very special VLOG (travel video) that captures this incredible adventure.
Last Friday morning my hubs and I began our staycation in Calgary with an early start to the morning. We woke up bright and early to make our drive to the mountains for the dog sledding tour. Even though I’ve lived near the mountains all my life, dog sledding has always been on my bucket list of things to experience. It was everything I had hoped for.
One of my favorite things was how the huskies were absolute sweethearts and they would lean in when I would pet them. The dog sledding itself was exhilarating and I even got to drive the sled at one point – let’s face it, the dogs pretty much do it all themselves! Without a doubt, these dogs love what they do! Even though it was super frigid cold temperatures, the majestic mountain surrounding made up for it and all I could do is just stare in awe as we rode up and down hills, along side a canal and across a wide open frozen lake. The sweetest memory I have is being able to watch the sweet huskies as they truly ran their hearts out for our sled.
Thank you so much for reading and a big thanks to AIR MILES for the incredible travel experience in my very own city!
