Experience the magical feeling of ‘mushing’ your own team of Alaskan or Siberian huskies across a blanket of fresh snow, past snow-covered trees and frozen lakes. A truly unique experience, you will learn about these fascinating animals whilst exploring dramatic scenery, as you drive your sled. Huskies love humans and love to run, and on longer trips you will really bond with the dogs, as you help feed and harness your dogs each day and become a genuine team.

Each ‘musher’ will have up to 4 or 5 dogs in their team, depending on their weight, and the trail conditions. The dogs have an average speed of 10-15 kilometres per hour, but can pull at 20 kph, meaning the driver has to keep good control of the sled. Other moments are more tranquil, giving time to enjoy the winter landscape. Longer holidays usually spend nights in remote wilderness cabins, where facilities are more basic, but the team gets to feel the true spirit of the old time dogsledders who worked the frontier trails.
