HUSKY DOG – THE MAGIC SLED DOGS WORLD
The headquarters of the activity is located in the wonderful natural basin next to the Hotel Restaurant Fiames, a few minutes by car drive or bus from Cortina d’Ampezzo on the National Road 51 direction of Dobiacco.
In collaboration with our Sports Association International Mushing Sleddog School ( recognized by the Italian Olympic Comittee ) it will be possible to make an unforgettable experience on the snow driving a sled pulled by happy Husky sled Dogs, protagonists of travels and adventures in the Arctic and the Alps.
It will be carried out a initial detailed lesson with a subsequent tour on snow for beginners lasting a total of 1 hour which includes the initial theoretical lesson about driving a sled and how to behave with our Dogs + the preparation of a sled with an adequate number of Dogs + tour driving personally a sled assisted remotely by our Staff in the School’ s trail + photos, cuddles and biscuits to the Dogs after arrival. Cost € 100 adults, € 70 children up to 14years of age.
This activity is suitable for anyone with a minimum of physical fitness, from the age of 6 onwards and allows you to establish a fantastic relationship with our sled dogs. Younger children ( at the Instructors discretion ) and people with disabilities, go out accompanied by an instructor driving the sled. The recommended clothing is classic ski clothing with sufficiently warm trousers and windbreaker jacket, gloves, hat and eventually glasses. Shoes like après-ski or trekking, warm and comfortable not bulky and with a well-structured sole ( we do not recommend Moon Boots ! ) to allow you to move easily on the snow.
