Experience Mushing - a wish come true for many animal lovers! (participation as a passenger)

Mushing course "Björksele"

Siberian Huskies exert a special attraction on many people. Friendly and good-natured with bipeds, but also lively and excitedly barking when waiting for the go for a sled or all-terrain-vehicle tour - Huskies are versatile!

During a ca. 2-hour programme the participants we learn the basics about driving a dog team.

This workshop is aimed at people who do not want to/cannot drive a dog team on a sled or all-terrainn-vehicle themselves (e.g. they are physically restricted. For the tour, the participant will be seated in a specially equipped all-terrain-vehicle and an experienced guide will drive the dog team.

All our courses begin with the introduction of the dog breed and our pack. Before the tour starts, we will inform about equipment, driving techniques and safety when training with Huskies. Then we will harness the dogs and prepare the team. The tour will be driven with 10-12 strong dogs. The duration of the tour depends on the level of training and weather and will last about 30-45 minutes.

Following, will be a special experience: be close to our Huskies. We will enter the (naturally created) kennel with the dogs, find a spot and will allow the dogs to approach us humans. This has lead to some unexpected and close encounters! Be surprised!

To conclude the course, we will get together in our cosy guest room and share the experiences of the tour.
