Full winter clothing is provided

Have you ever heard the sound of four paws on snow, felt the chill of the mountain air on your face or listened to the song of 180 dogs who just want to run?

After meeting our driver and minibus at the pick-up point, enjoy a scenic 30 minute drive away from the bustling city and out to our kennel. Here you will be welcomed by our friendly staff who provide you with a polar insulated suit and boots. You may also borrow hats and mittens if needed.

Once you are dressed you are welcome to explore the kennel and meet our dogs.

We pride ourselves on our friendly and social huskies. They love to meet and interact with guests. Your guide will then tell you a little about the history of the Alaskan Husky and what incredible athletes these dogs are. Watch carefully as the staff demonstrate how to drive your own sled and what to expect from the trail that day.

Our guides and dogs are excellent teachers and will make sure you are safe and comfortable on the trail.

Dog Sledding Team

Now you are ready to meet your team!

In pairs, one driver and one passenger, you will be directed to a sled. The dogs know they are just about to run, so expect a lot of excited barking and howling. This is part of the fun! Staff will assist you to release your sled. From this point on it is all down to you! Remember the instructions and enjoy the ride!

Our guides are available if you have any questions whilst on the trip.
