Live the outdoors side by side with resistant and faithful animals: let’s go Sleddog!! Jump on the sled pulled by snowdogs, get the action and practice that will let you feel like a real musher!
Sleddog – Fusine Lakes, Tarvisio
Have you ever heard of mushing? It’s a sport and transport method involving a sled and a pack of dogs (there’s the name sleddog), and before the snowmobile it was the only way, in Nordic countries, to reach neighboring villages covering huge distances on the frozen land. The guide of sleddog is called “musher” who can “drive” a two dogs line up to even twenty for long distances, each one with its specific role.
Start off learning basics and fundamental commands to practice sleddog in complete connection with the snowdogs and followed by the guide. After the introduction and some practice at the camp the actual trip begins. A panoramic ride for about one and a half hours passing through the forest and valley of Fusine lakes, Tarvisio (UD). Remember dogs don’t do all the work for you tho!
We advise to wear the necessary clothing for cold season as well waterproof boots. Groups of minimum two people up to 3. Each person guiding their own sled.
