Hiking with Huskies:
We are spoilt for choice – so many wonderful routes including some Wainwright walks.
Accompanied by your experienced guide Sonia and some of her sled dogs you can enjoy the spectacular Cumbrian scenery. We have a walk to suit all in terms of terrain and length. Walks are graded as to level of difficulty. A husky will be chosen to accompany you.
You will be shown how to use the equipment correctly (safely and with kindness). A walking belt and elasticated lead will be provided to give you a tow up the steeper paths plus a halti and short lead for when you do not want the husky to pull.
You can elect to share a husky if you prefer. Maps will be provided for those that like to keep tabs on where they are going.
Equipment needed: Dress for walking in the fells, suitable footwear and waterproofs. Bring a rucksack for additional clothing, refreshment etc.
Group size: a maximum of 10 adults, children welcome.
Sand Buggy Beach Experience:
Try doing this without smiling. We have adapted kite buggies to be towed by a team of huskies and don’t worry we have added a brake. Often included with this experience is letting the huskies have a paddle or swim. You can join in too! Please note that this experience is offered to our silver and gold musher’s award holders.
Equipment: weather dependent – you can choose light weight clothing for warmer weather, waterproofs as necessary or even a wet/dry suit if you have one. Great for if you intend to join the huskies for a swim.
Group size 4. We can have a larger group if you are willing to wait longer for your turn.
After learning with a 3 or 4 wheeled rig you can have an enormous amount of fun bikejoring. The husky is attached to the mountain bike with an elasticated gangline.
You will be given a bike with the seat set a little lower than your usual height. We use our steady huskies to begin with.
