Northern Toboggan & Sled
Here at Northern Toboggan and Sled we pride ourselves on creating traditional handmade sleighs in the Algonkian and Athapaskin tradition. Just as the canoe is the craft best suited for northern waterways, the toboggan has been acknowledged for centuries as the premier mode of overland transportation in the northern wilderness.

Downhill Toboggan
When we started building sleighs for towing, we had inquiries for coasting toboggans, and when we launched our website, we had even more. Due to the many requests we experimented with prototypes in 2001. In 2002, we had our very good sleighs for sale. This season we added downhill toboggans to our product line. Customer satisfaction has been very high. This coasting toboggan is of very high quality by design, construction and materials. It has to be to have our brand.
