Husky sleigh ride in Gastein

Dog sledding in Sportgastein - the experience for your vacation!

What is a musher? Are all huskies the same? You will get the answers to these questions and many more at a husky workshop in Sportgastein. On the high plateau at the head of the Gastein valley you have the opportunity to learn everything you need to know about the enduring sled dogs.

 

For the classic sled dog ride, the animals are prepared together and harnessed in the husky yard. Between 2 and 6 huskies then pull the sled over the trails. Those who prefer the romantic silence can, after a short introduction with a husky, trudge in the footsteps of Jack London with snowshoes through the deep snowy winter landscape. A husky tour completely without dog sleds.
