You don't need to worry about your assigned companion. The musher, who knows the dogs and their habits extremely well, will give you a dog that is suited to your physical ability, your mood and the personality of the different participants.
Requiring more effort than it may appear: once you get going, you will cover a significant distance. The dog's energy will motivate you and the uphill sections will become almost painless! However, take care on the downhill sections as a dog that is in a hurry is sure to exercise your muscles as you hold the dog back... This activity is therefore ideal for letting off some steam!
You would like to go dog-led snowshoeing but you do not know how to dress or what shoes to wear? Find out how to get the right gear.
In summer or when there is not enough snow, take off the snowshoes and go on a dog-led hike for an equally memorable experience!
In order to find mushers that are local to you - or near to your holiday destination - you can turn to your local tourist information offices.
