Dog sledging


Our four-legged friends up and down the country are ready to give you an experience of a lifetime. Try your hand as a musher and steer your own pack of dogs for several days, or enjoy the view as a passenger on a one-day dog sledding trip. Huskies, the breed commonly used for dog sledding, are strong dogs. On a typical trip, they will pull you at high speed through the white wilderness. And as the wind slaps you gently in the face, you will get a taste of what life was like in the old days, when dog sledding was a much more common mode of transportation.
