The ride was really fun, on the day there wasn't much snow so instead of the traditional sled we used one with wheels, I was traveling alone, so I shared the sled with someone else who was also participating in the activity. They provide thermal clothing, cover for boots and gloves, even if your clothing is already appropriate for the cold, I recommend using the ones provided, so you can get to the dogs without fear of getting dirty. The dogs are very well treated and they are all very calm and love to be petted, I spent a lot of time petting as many dogs as possible. The staff was also very friendly, answered a lot of questions and shared a lot of nice information.

We couldn't do it by sleigh due to lack of snow, but I give them 5 stars for finding a solution, and it was to use sleds with wheels. The guides gave us a very funny and informative talk about the huskies, and even though they told us everyone's names, I had a very good relationship with Warm (you'll find out why he's called that hahaha). All necessary equipment for the experience was provided, and the food was very good. The guides were very kind and were very patient with us, since the car's brakes are difficult to hit, especially if you have small hands.

Por falta de nieve, no pudimos hacer la actividad con los trineos. Nos avisaron con tiempo y nos propusieron una alternativa o cancelar la actividad si queríamos. Decidimos continuar con su propuesta y fue una muy buena opción. Muy divertido, bien organizado, el personal muy atento y el material que te dejan están en optimas condiciones. Muy recomendable

We went out on the sledges with wheels and yes, it would have been nicer in the snow but the experience was still great. The dogs were amazing and super friendly just like the staff. The puppies were absolutely adorable and I failed to smuggle one out. The location has amazing scenery and a golf course to boot. Loved it!

Amazing and thrilling! Not much snow on December 2 but they have wheeled carts the dogs pull. The guides were knowledgeable and very nice. The dogs are well taken care of and love their jobs. We were provided all the necessary gear to be warm and comfy. Highly recommend
