Toronto offers an abundance of holiday magic right here in the city. But, if you do want to venture a little further afield, there's a truly magical experience waiting for you. If you’re looking for a magical outdoor adventure date near Toronto, dog sled tours at North Ridge Ranch are simply pawfect

Around two hours away from the downtown core, there is an adorable pack of husky dogs who are waiting to take you and your S/O on an enchanted journey through a wintry forest. 

North Ridge Ranch, located in Huntsville, is home to a huge team of over 60 doggos and some of the best winter scenery in the province.

This Ontario ranch is the perfect backdrop for a truly romantic escapade. 

You and your S/O will be carried by a team of five to eight huskies who are capable of running up to 30 km/h.

This brings a whole new meaning to speed dating, let us tell you.

The ranch is open from December 14 this year, so be sure to mark your calendars and cross your fingers for some snow. 

Now all that’s left to do is try to decide who’s driving the sled.

The sleds are designed for two people, one driver and one passenger.

You'll follow behind one of the ranch's guides as these loveable pups lead you through the snow on an enchanting journey.

Meeting the huskies and giving them some pre-ride loving is arguably the best part of this adventure, so this is ideal for the pup lover in both of you.

While the dogs here are remarkably strong, you'll need to help them out along the way too. You should be prepared to pedal or walk behind the sled over the more challenging hills. 

So for all the adventure seekers and animal lovers, can date night get much better than this? We don't think so.
