Do you need a break from your busy life and do something completely different, just for a few days? Summer is so far away and you seek for something exciting to do? Need a getaway?

We do know the feeling. And based upon many requests and inquiries about dog mushing tours, we constructed this weekend program, which will give you the touch of all - mushing, sled dog experience, some hiking, snowshoeing, some puppy love, Katerina´s famous home cooking and pleasant times by the fireplace or open fire outside.

And not just that. Our Weekend Mushing Experience program combines activities of different times of the year. So regardless of the weather, the snow or the sunshine, you will still be able to enjoy your weekend adventures to the fullest.

Weekend Mushing Experience is a new program, composed to not only satisfy your mushing and sled dog tour desires, but especially it´s "dryland" version gives you the exclusive insight into the daily program and routines of a sled dog racing kennel, and the seldom oportunity to witness and become a part of the preparations and training of the canine athletes for the tough upcomming races.

Because of our busy racing season, this is one of your few and rare chances to meet the huskies in action in their natural element. Your chance to feel the connection with them, and getting a hands-on experience of the commitments that we have towards these wonderful animals.

Take advantage of our Weekend Mushing Experience offer and book your weekend adventure well in advance. There are only certain specific dates available, throughout late winter, spring and autumn.
