Expedition Wolf was born out of passion for dog sleds and huskies. It came about in the mid nineties just as the Mont Tremblant resort was expanding. It’s founder, Abitibian Gaëtan Lambert has owned sled dogs for over forty years.
Originally the pack consisted of roughly twenty huskies and a couple of guides. Today, the family counts 160 huskies half of which were born within Expedition Wolf, the others being abandoned dogs which we have retrieved.
As members of Adventure Ecotourism Quebec and in strict compliance with MAPAQ and SPCA norms, Expedition Wolf aims to be a beacon in the dog sled world.
Our goal is to offer a safe ans enjoyable dog sled hike for the entire family
Our dog pack consists of 160 huskies half of which were born within Expedition Wolf, the others being abandoned dogs which we have retrieved.
80% of our females and 30% of our males are sterilized to control birth rate.
Our dogs are vermifuged, vaccinated and cared for by a team of veterinarians from Mont-Tremblant.
Retired dogs are kept well after their active duty days. They are excellent at training juniors on short distances. They are kept in heated dog houses during the winter season.
Many dogs we have are now retired. We keep them all. Many of them are rescue digs and have lived in houses in the past.
So many of them could be adopted and have a well-deserved retirement.
Please contact us if you want to help us in our good cause and take care of a retired dog.
MEET THE TEAM
Many are adventure tourism graduates from CEGEP St-Laurent. Others are dog specialists, some with up to 20 years experience with dog sleds. Heading this team is Gaëtan Lambert, owner of sled dogs for more than 40 years and Sophie Gaulin, a certified accountant by trade and a musher guide for 20 years.
Newcomers join our team each year and gain experience of their own. We also welcome interns from CEGEP St-Laurent, France and adult schools each winter.
Our affiliation to Ecotourism Adventure Quebec guarantees the level of professionalism of both our trekking management skills and that of our team.
