Overview

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.

Had a great experience running the dogs. Vikki will allow you to get as hands on with the dogs as you feel comfortable with and clearly loves and cares for her dogs. She is hugely knowledgeable about a sport she obviously holds dear as well...More

Lovely setting and we had a dry day, but the actual experience of being pulled by dogs is amazing. Certainly far and above what we expected. Vickie worked so hard to ensure our time was special, customising individual experiences for us.
