Mushing with Huskies "Tour Inuit" (2 days)
|Would you like to fulfill your dream to ride with husky sled dogs on a snowy landscape and sleep in an igloo?! This is the perfect excursion to get to know the Inuit life. You will take a public bus to Villarrica, where your guide will pick you up in a 4x4 Landrover for a twenty minute ride towards the Pino Huacho sector of the Villarrica volcano. Passing through a snowy araucaria forest on a 4x4 trail with views of the Villarrica Volcano, Lake Villarrica and Calafquén, you will approach your destination. After a short ride in a snowmobile or, alternatively, a forty minute trek through the snow, you will reach the mountain hut where the dogs are located. There you will be introduced to the equipment (harnesses and sled), and more importantly, to the Huskies! As a future musher, you will learn the basic techniques for handling your dogs. With your teammates, you will prepare the huskies with the correct gear. Each participant will handle their own sled being pulled by six huskies. With your help and the strength of the dogs, you will learn how to slide through snow and forests. In the afternoon, you will arrive to a small village of igloos, where you will enjoy a hot dinner and a place to stay for the night. The next morning, you will have another day in the snow with the dogs.|
