Although it is available during the whole year, dog sledding in winter has some features that will leave you with unforgettable memories for the rest of your life. Imagine the freezing winds in your face, snow, the dogs barking, and the speed! For several hours Huskies will become your best friends—they will face the severe Alaskan nature together with you. Since this sport is not the safest one, before driving it’s better to learn some rules and the basic skills. But don’t worry, it is not hard to find a good guide in Alaska. Though, if you are not confident enough, there is al​so a possibility to hire an instructor, who will drive a sled with you.
