The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is a historic property that was built in 1911. It sits on the Delaware River and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area near the Pocono foothills in Pocono Manor. This area provides for the most picture-perfect backdrop for a winter getaway.

The resort offers guided hikes through the Poconos, axe throwing, kayaking, skiing, a brewery, and the Arctic Paws Dog Sled Tours that provide visitors with the unique opportunity to go dog sledding.

Dog sledding is actually more of a workout than it is a relaxing ride. According to Arctic Paws, dog sledding can be compared to mountain bike riding.

Arctic Paws is offered for a "snow" or a "no snow" tour. Before your adventure begins, you'll receive specific instructions on how to navigate the sled and instructors will be present for your entire tour.

You'll get to meet the team of 7 beautiful Alaskan and Siberian Huskies on a one-of-a-kind winter adventure. Guests ages 10 and older are welcome to ride and the dog sledding season is usually open from mid-December until February.
