A Day out to Remember
A fantastic winter activity, you can choose between full and half day excursions for your dog sledding adventure. For those who are hesitant, don’t worry, the dogs love their job and have just as much fun as you during your journey. At 10 km an hour the dogs can cover an impressive 60 km each day.
