Send in reservation form with a $200 deposit per person for Maine trips , $100 per person for day trips, $400 deposit per person for Canadian or western river canoe trips to: MAHOOSUC GUIDE SERVICE, 1513 BEAR RIVER ROAD, NEWRY, MAINE, 04261. We cannot accept reservations without a signed reservation form and deposit. Balance is due 30 days prior to trip’s starting date, 60 days for Canadian Cultural or western river canoe trips. After we receive your reservation form and deposit, we will send you a pre-trip packet that contains the clothing list, where your trip will start and end, and time schedule.

For day trips only, include:
List of names, height, weight, age, parka size, and shoe size for each person coming.


If you cancel: Deposits are non-refundable. From 0-14 days before trip starts, no money is refundable. Within 14-30 days before the trip starts, money is non-refundable, but you may apply the amount to another trip for one year (on a space available basis) minus your deposit.   If you cancel within 14 days of the starting date, money is non-transferable and non-refundable. We go in all conditions including rain and thaws.  If extreme weather conditions prevent you from traveling to Maine for your trip, you may use the full amount less the deposit for another trip for one year from the trip starting date. You may wish to purchase vacation insurance to cover this possibility. If you have to cancel due to Covid related issues we will not be able to give a refund, but will lock in the price of the trip and give a 2 year credit (minus your deposit) to be used toward any of our trips.

If we cancel:  We only cancel a trip for safety reasons (i.e. flooding, bad ice, extreme windchill or lack of conditions – not enough snow or ice.)  If we need to cancel, we try to reschedule people to another trip.  If we need to cancel for safety or lack of conditions you may choose to use the full amount toward another Mahoosuc trip for 2 years, or receive a 50% refund and apply the other half to a Mahoosuc trip for 2 years.

If we have to cancel due to Covid related issues we will not be able to give a refund, but will lock in the price of the trip and give a 2 year credit to be used toward any of our trips.

Physical Requirements:
Mushing can be physically demanding. We cannot predict trail conditions as they change daily, sometimes hourly. You should be in good physical condition for an overnight dog sledding trip. The dogs are strong; however, there are limits to their pulling ability. Therefore, we ask individuals who weigh over 215 lbs. to contact us prior to sending in their reservation form.


At Mahoosuc Guide Service we are trying to stay as safe as possible while conducting trips during a pandemic for the safety of our guests, employees and community. We are asking everyone going on a trip with us this winter to provide a negative PCR Covid-19 test within 72 hours of the trip date. We are also requesting people self quarantine as much as realistically possible while waiting for test results and that you are extremely careful while traveling to Mahoosuc for your trip.
If for some reason you are not able to comply with this we will not be able to guide you. Deposits will not be refunded or transferred for credit. The balance for the trip, minus your deposit, can be kept as a credit for 2 years with Mahoosuc for a trip in the future.
