Mushing in Ely, Minnesota
One of the top mushing (a.k.a. dog sledding) adventure companies in the country, Minnesota-based Wintergreen offers day trips and lodge-to-lodge multi-day packages. But the more intrepid can choose weeklong dogsled camping adventures in the Boundary Waters’ border wilderness to visit Indian pictographs in Sunday Bay and the Painted Cliffs of Lac La Croix ($1,275, January 28 to February 3). For the truly adventurous, Wintergreen also offers a 10-day Arctic trip along the remote northern tundra of Canada’s Polar Bear National Park to the legendary community of Churchill on Hudson Bay, where guests learn about climate change, Eskimo culture, and the beauty of the Northern Lights. ($3,400, March 29 to April; dogsledding.com)
