Husky Spirit – Sledge dog rides in Gosau

Winter adventure for adventure lovers

Sledge dog ride, huskies, snow, winter, cold - all this is not only available just in Alaska, Canada, Lapland or Siberia. Also in the Salzkammergut there is an area that offers such experiences: the Gosau Valley. These sledge dog rides are a breathtaking adventure that will take you back to the early days of dog sledging as a means of transport. It is only in the cold winter that sledge dogs feel really comfortable - with a lot of pleasure in running, they pull guided by you, your own team of dogs through the snow-covered Gosau Valley.

Just like the mushers, as the sledge dog guides are known, still run with their teams through the unreal ice deserts of this earth. All that can be heard is the dogs panting and the sound of their paws on the snow...
