Husky Ride

In January, the Aviemore Sled Dog Rally takes place.  Dogs race in teams of two to eight over a forest course.  First held back in the mid 1980s, today the event in Aviemore is the largest husky race in the UK, with a barking 1,000 dogs and 200 teams - that's an awful lot of woof power.  Alaskan malamutes, samoyeds, Greenland dog and Canadian Eskimo dogs usually take part in the event and could reach up to speeds of 20 mph. 
The Siberian Husky Club organises the race, which is a growing sport in the UK. If you want to give it a go yourself, the good news is that there's an opportunity to try husky rides in Gloucestershire & in Aviemore itself.

Here are some husky experiences in the UK - plus some husky dog-sledding holidays, if you'd like to go further afield! 
As always, please check the information pertaining to the experience, plus T&Cs before you buy - and don't forget to watch voucher expiry dates.
