  • I had a wonderful sled dog experience. I not only had hands on time with the dogs, but also learned so much by actively taking part in set up and break down of the run. I had a million questions...  more »

  • What a magical experience, gliding through the pristine winter woods, pulled by a team of dogs reveling in their element! Points Unknown provides exciting, educational adventures from half-day to extended lifestyle immersion events. Our adventure began as we got to know our team, all well-behaved and eager to run. We snuggled into a cozy, zip-up bag with hot water bottles at our feet, then off we went, swooshing around curves and following the varied terrain of immaculately kept trails. We returned to a warm fire and an assortment of hot drinks and snacks. The staff was very welcoming and courteous, as well as providing a wealth of iinformation about the dogs and the Points Unknown mission. Thank you for a wonderful adventure!
  • Points Unknown is one of the most professional, educational and well-run kennels you will find anywhere in the country. Linda's deep care for the animals' health and happiness are apparent in every step she takes to make the kennel as welcoming and comfortable as possible for people and dogs alike. The sled adventures are spectacularly beautiful and the wilderness around Points Unknown is perfect for summer activities and canoeing as well. Cannot recommend enough!
  • What an incredible experience. Where can you rent a beautiful guest suite where you can feed and pet sled dogs! More like sled pets they are so well trained. From winter dog sledding adventures to summer hiking, paddling, and cani-cross there is so much to do. (Tour the bees wax candle making space too!) Don't wait. Book now for the experience of a lifetime!
  • Recently, I had the Guest Suite all to myself for 3 days. One morning I woke up feeling totally relaxed and I looked up at the gorgeous woodwork above me, down at the gleaming hardwood floors, over to the kitchen area backsplash of stones from Lake Superior, and these words just spilled out: "Thank you." My gratitude was for Linda, her vision of a creating a little haven in the middle of the boreal forest, for all the work that went into making and maintaining such a place, for the kindness and hospitality, for hearing Linda's beautiful Hedlund Huskies singing to the stars the night before, and for the pure magic of knowing such a place exists.
  • We did the kennel tour and got to meet all the dogs! Watching their evening feeding routine was wonderful and Linda was great at explaining all the relationships and dynamics between the dogs. I'll definitely be back for one of the dogsledding adventures!
