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.

An introductory sleddog lesson and field practice are foreseen followed by a 1 hour or 2 hours tour in the marvelous 3 borders international Alps panorama of Fusine. Long distance and duration tour includes a sneak break in the woods. Start off learning basics and fundamental commands of a Musher in complete connection with the snowdogs and followed by the guide and remember, dogs don’t do all the work for you!

We did the morning tour and had a blast! First off, dogs are amazing, friendly and you get time to meet and greet, cuddle, photos… They clearly LOVE what they are doing and so did we!

Lovely, yappy, happy dogs, who get to sleep on the sofa now and again! We drove the sleds ourselves, and the dogs just love it. Would raccomand this experience to everybody!

We thought we were going to sit on a sledge and be pulled along, but it turns out we were actually driving it too!! We got to meet all the dogs first, then hitch them all up to the sledges. Then we went off into the countryside. It’s so peaceful
