Intro to Mushing
Experience the excitement of being a Dog Musher as a family or group; young or young at heart.
We will teach you the basics of sled dog mushing through instruction and fun learning activities.
This is a great opportunity for you and your children (minimum age 8yrs) or group to get up close and personal with our working sled dogs, learn about their personalities and interact with them.
You will learn to ride a dryland race rig, we will teach you how to handle eager sled dogs and the commands used to drive a team. Once confident, we will hitch up 1 or 2 dogs (depending on age, ability and confidence) for you to ‘MUSH’ just like a real sled dog musher.
Training is in groups of up to 6 rookie mushers. If you have additional needs and would require a 1 to 1 session, we may be able to accommodate you, please contact us before booking.
£80 for one person
£75 for two people
£70 for three people
£65 for four or more people
Working sled dogs is a cold weather activity, during warmer weather adventures may be postponed until temperatures drop, this will ensure the welfare of our dogs. As a general rule of thumb, we do not run our dogs when temperatures are above 15 degrees and humidity of 85%. Our booking calendar will reflect this.
In less cold weather, we only offer our Sunrise (5am) timeslots so be prepared for an early start!
