Husky Adventures in Sportgastein

A Unique Holiday Highlight

What is a musher? Are all huskies the same?

During a husky workshop in Sportgastein, you'll get the answers to those questions and many more. On the high plateau located at the Gastein valley head, you have a great opportunity to learn everything there is to know about sled dogs and their astonishing stamina.


For classic dog sledding, a dog team is prepared and harnessed up to the sled. Between 2 and 6 huskies pull the sleds along the trails.

If the romance of the great outdoors appeals to you, enjoy an introduction to the basics of dog sledding and how to get the most out of your team of huskies. Then, strap on a pair of snowshoes and trudge out through the snowy winter countryside in the footsteps of Jack London himself. And let the adventure begin!


A day with the huskies also promises excitement for children's groups. Aside from feeding and taking care of the animals, the youngsters will also have the opportunity to earn their first diploma in the art of mushing.



As soon as Sportgastein has plenty of snow cover, Manuela and Arnold will set out to their camp with their furry companions, eagerly looking forward to your visit.
