  • SERIOUSLY AMAZING! Truly wonderful humans running a phenomenal establishment providing true honest experiences. We treated our girls to a surprise horseback guided tour & they were super stoked! They were very accommodating & extremely kind. Very knowledgeable & so very patient for the first time riders. Prices are way less than I expect! It was such a lovely experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone wishing to ride horseback around Hasting Highlands.
  • We thoroughly enjoyed horseback riding with the group. Matt, our guide was very patient and professional. The girls working were lovely as well!! Thank you so much for the experience with these beautiful animals!!!
  • We had an awesome experience dog sledding. The dogs clearly love what they are doing and are loved and respected by the staff and owners. Being able to lead and drive your own sled and get hands on with putting the dogs away after was great. All the dogs are very friendly and happy. I would recommend snow pants and ski masks as you are out on the trail for the entire time you pay for.
  • You should be in politics. It was my spouse by the way...a wedding gift. And the cancellations one was in the middle of the worst ice storm of the winter, the other you were ok with...again bad weather because you wanted the time for someone else. It is no shock that this has been. terrible winter. No use arguing the point. The dogs were great, they were awesome....it was the rudeness.. Terrible experience, ended up with a concussion on the trails, that were not well groomed, narrow and had many sharp turns. From the time we arrived we were greeted with arrogance and attitude that made it quite clear we were an inconvenience that day because no one else was booked the tour that day. As a a matter of fact, the dogs had not run for a whole week and they were anxious to run, naturally but not a good trail for a novice on this day. The turns and downhills were very bumpy and when the fall happened the lone guide was about a km ahead, no where in sight and no where near close enough to hear our calls. Alone and injured on a trail in the middle of the woods near Algonquin is not a good place to be. No one called to check up on his after we went to the ER, or to file an accident report. The owners were very rude and unprofessional and I would never wish recommend this venue to anyone.
  • We had a great time sledding! Some people dont understand that these dogs love to pull the sleds! They are bred working dogs. There is a difference from the pets at home. They are very vocal in the dog yard, excited to get out on the trails. Which is normal. "City" and PETA type folk may question the morality when there is little reason too. The Dogs at highland wilderness tours are well kept, friendly and eager to pull. Matt taught us to harness the dogs and how to drive the seld. Even us, as amateurs, had no trouble doing both. The dogs were well behaved and Matt was thorough explaining how to manage the sled teams and what to do if you get a tangled dog and need to stop. We had a great time and would recommend them to anyone looking for a wilderness adventure. If you dont like dogs, if you cant grasp the idea of dogs bred to do a job, stay in the city and go see a movie. If you like adventure, love dogs, and want to try somthing new. Check out highland wilderness tours.
