Dog Sledding with huskies

The huskies are tugging impatiently on the harness. They want to run. The Alaskan huskies are the elite athletes of the canine world; they are adapted to the demanding Arctic climate and running long distances. And you can join in. Sit on the sled and let yourself be carried across white expanses by pure dog power. 

In midwinter, this will be beneath starry skies, while as spring goes on, more of the special light in the north creeps in. Experienced mushers drive you safely through the terrain for a tour of the winter landscape. 

The husky safari allows you to meet more than your own dog team. There are 180 strong, beautiful huskies in the yard. They may seem shy at first, but once you have made contact, you will feel the warmth of these wonderful animals. This is also why the kennel is open so that guests can get to know both the adult dogs and the puppies. Just get ready for dog cuddles.
