We currently have 12 well trained huskies that are willing to pull you along to see the wonderful Lake District! Your experience of dry-land mushing can be either as a passenger with the dogs under control of an experienced musher or self-driven after appropriate tuition. Hiking with huskies! Accompanied a guide you can enjoy the spectacular Cumbrian scenery with a hike to suit all!

I brought this experience for my husband as an anniversary present. Although the weather was appalling, we still went out. Amazing experience and so much fun. All members of the team made us feel very welcome and supportive. Definitely will be going back.

It is providing he's good on his feet . The huskies are strong however they do tell you about each one and what to expect before you set off. Ours was a gift but I have seen it on groupon !
