The Lucky Cat Dog Farm is the longest continually operating dog sled tour business in Gunnison County.

Our goal is to share with our passengers the thrill and excitement of the dog sledding experience. Our trips are designed to be fun, exciting, educational and even relaxing; amazingly, they are many things to many people.

What we do well is to create a trip for you and your family that will allow everyone to participate at whatever level they wish.
  • If your idea of fun is to stand on the back of the sled and see the world from the Iditarod point of view, we can do that.
  • If you want to snuggle in the sled bag and watch the world go by while you relax to the rhythm of the dogs, we can do that also.
  • We have trips that include lunch and trips that can be finished and get you back to ski in the afternoon.
  • Mostly, we try to take you into the spectacular back country of Gunnison county for an unforgettable wilderness adventure.

Currently we are offering a tour that lasts about two hours.

Two hour tour price per person:
  • Adult $165
  • Kid    $150 (children under 12)

In addition to our main tour above we are also offering lunch tours.
Lunch tour prices per person are $225 for adults, $200 for kids.

Other possibilities may exist at any time and depending on the time of year and the weather, we may be making adjustments to this. When you call for reservations, ask for other options if this don't suit your plans.

To make reservations, call 970-641-1636 between 6:00 and 8:30 pm mst.  A deposit of 50% is required to hold your tour. 

Deposits will be refunded up to one week prior to  the trip. Should you give less that one week notice, your deposit will not be refunded.   Please note that for holiday excursions (Christmas, MLK, Pres weekend, etc), we enforce a strict NO cancellation and NO refund policy. 

We do not accept credit cards but we will take personal checks. A deposit may be required for groups of four or more during peak times.

If you do not have transportation there is a free bus between Gunnison, Crested Butte and/or MT. Crested Butte. You can check the latest schedule and stop locations at the Gunnison Valley RTA website.
