Husky Safari Holiday Ideas

Huskies are known for their big personalities, their enthusiastic approach to life and their eagerness to work. These lovable creatures combine all the charms of your four-legged friend back home with a strength and power that will blow you away. Trained their entire lives for this job, they love every single minute of each and every adventure and the great news is, their enthusiasm is contagious. Children will love the chance to snuggle up to them before heading out on a short journey across stunning snowscapes. Thrill-seeking teens and adults will revel in the opportunity to be carried through stunning Arctic scenery, past frozen lakes and glistening glaciers on a longer, high-speed sled adventure. And for the really adventurous amongst us, a multi-day excursion will satisfy your need for speed as the dog’s race across snow-blanketed terrains and across borders. All the while, you will be accompanied by an expert who will show you the ropes and put your skills to the test.

Deciding to try husky sledding is the easy part, but choosing the right trip for you is where it becomes tricky. To help you decide, we’ve put together this helpful Husky Safari Holiday Ideas page. We’ve broken the trips down into short and long holidays which feature a husky sledding activity and full on husky adventures. Scroll through the itineraries below and see which Husky Safari Holiday Ideas will inspire you.
