now you don't have to travel to Alaska to enoy the thrills of working with these amazing sled dogs. Arctic Quest is the only company in the UK that gives you the chance to learn how to mush a team of dogs yourself.There is plenty of hands on time with the team as you become an integrual part of the team. We offer several packages including children and you can even choose to stay in our traditional Sami Tipi to fully experience life as a musher. This really is an experience of a lifetime and one not to be missed.

Amazing, brilliant,awesome! What more can I say. Vickie is great fun, a great teacher and love to share her knowledge. Being able to help with the dogs,who are just incredible, is something else. But make no mistake, this is serious stuff, these are competition dogs. You will have an exceptional day if you listen and learn. I will definitely be... More

Absolutely amazing time! We were all experienced with animals so Vickie let us do a lot of the handling, getting up close and personal with the dogs. She talks so passionately about what she does and it is fascinating! After a ride each and a lot of chatting, Vickie made us hot chocolate and marshmallows over an open fire.

I had a surprise hen do organised and we went to do husky sledding with Vickie from Arctic quest. I cannot rate this highly enough, Vickie was friendly, funny, informative and you could see how much passion and love she had for her dogs. We had an excellent time and even got to handle the dogs, taking them to and... More

What a heart warming, fun & informative experience we had. We spent the Sat afternoon/evening relaxing on the deck of the Herders Hut, we cooked on the open fire and enjoyed the peace & tranquility of the gorgeous surroundings. The next morning Vickie met us at 9.00am and luckily we didn't have to share her or the dogs with anyone... More

My husband and I did the full mushing experience today, and it was fantastic from start to finish! Despite the horrendously high winds (thanks, Storm Doris) Vickie and Russ were really enthusiastic and made sure we got the most out of our experience. Vickie explained a lot about how the dogs' welfare has to always come first, and paired us... More

I booked this experience for me and my daughter for her 16th birthday. This was a amazing experience one which we will both never forget. Vicky and Russ are very experienced and know their dogs very well and ensured that we were paired up with the appropriate dogs that suited our confidence and ability levels. My daughter was not very... More

Booked for my boyfriends 21st and was not disappointed. Amazing experience for both of us. Dogs are very well looked after and very happy, they obviously love what they do! Very relaxed atmosphere so you're able to ask questions freely. Highly recommend 😊

My husband booked this experience for my birthday & I couldn't have enjoyed it more. Meeting the dogs, Vicky & the team was a pleasure. I really liked the sledging & would have loved to have done more. The dogs are beautiful & so well looked after. We had 3 goes at sledging, as we became more confident more dogs... More
