Musuems & Huskie Dog Sledding
What could be more iconic in a Siberian
landscape than whizzing along a snow trail being hauled by eager artic huskies!
Add this option to the existing Irkutsk stopover. It would be done on a day yuo
are at Lystvynaka.
Once at the dog kennels you have a brief instruction and see how your team of racing huskies are harnessed. You are then off along the forest trail. Yes, you are in control of the sled and its team – mush!. An experienced guide-instructor will escort your trip by skidoo.
Note: It is possible to share the ‘driving’ amongst others in your party. The total trail lap is either 5 or 10km. You can change drivers – max 3 persons per sled. You can arrange longer rides for a surcharge.
There are much longer options available including overnighting at a small village. These involve a bit more physical activity including some walking. You should be fit and prepared for strenuous activity in cold conditions.
And of course everyone loves a cute puppy picture!!
