Great winter activity for people who love husky dogs!
Do you want to become a musher and drive a dog sled across the snowy fields in couple hours?
This is the right place for booking this experience!
Huskies have always been friendly dogs , we all know that as we have 20 years of experience in working with them here in Slovakia.
Are you thinking about booking our programme but you need more information?
Here we go, find out more how your day with huskies will look like.
Place where we do our husky adventures and dog sledding strongly depends on the snow conditions that day. Most of the time BUT NOT ALL THE TIME 🙂 , we are near village Gerlachov at NP Vysoké Tatry.
Once you meet us at the husky location, you will be introduced to our team and we will have a short chat about the dogs. Later on, you will be taken by our husky instructor for the first ride on circuit 1-2km long.
Most of the time we have 4 to 8 people in the group. that means after each lap you will change and instructor will take another person into sledge.
Now it is time for you to learn how to drive the husky dog sled!!
Dogs always follow track that they have done before, so you do not need to be worried about direction, but if you want to feel like an musher, you can try to shout GO-GO-GO or just STOP in the end.
Little hint for you:) : husky dogs never listen word STOP, because they LOVE to run and they have energy for all day long!!!
Only way to stop huskies is to step hardly on the brake located near your feet at the sled.
Please notice: Slovakia is hilly country and we DO NOT DO half day tours or all day tours like in Finland or in Sweden.
Our programme is set for 2 hours on 1-4 km circuit, where we will teach you all the technics and everything about dog sledding in Slovakia.
Once the program is done, you become real musher and you are able to ride dog sled with huskies by yourself:)
Husky place strongly depends on snow level. If we have great winter, place is at Gerlachov, if we have less snow we ride husky adventures in village Pribylina.
You met our guides, our huskies are excited to pull the sled. You will be driven firstly on sled with our instructors, later, we will let you go with our huskies and sled by yourself:)
After great session and tons of videos it is time to say bye, if needed, we will give you transfer back to your hotel.
P.S.: do not forget to take a group picture with the dogs!!!
