Churchill, MB, Canada
Wapusk AdventuresIn the summer in Churchill, when the tundra is abloom with wildflowers and the snow and ice of winter is still months away, you won’t be able to have a full-on Iditarod experience. Still, Will’s itinerary includes a morning with Dave Daley of Wapusk Adventures where you’ll get to see his team of dogs in action—albeit dog-carting rather than pulling a sled. As much as the excitement of seeing the dogs in action, however, is hearing Dave explain the art of raising and training sled dogs, while also sharing insights on Canada’s Métis culture, the descendants of marriages between First Nations peoples and European settlers.
