You will be picked up from your hotel and driven to the outskirts of Riga. That takes about 30 minutes. Once we arrive, you will be introduced to the dogs and have time to make photos and play with dogs. You get all the necessary sledding instructions before you hit the trail with 2 persons on each Sled (one as a musher and one as a passenger). In the middle of the 5 km (3 mi) track we will make a stop and you will have a chance to explore the monuments at former Salaspils Concentration camp. On a way back you can change so both will enjoy the feeling of riding the sled. After the activity we will warm up with the hot tea or coffee before returning back to Riga.
Another husky dog provider is located 45 minutes’ drive from Riga downtown. This track is shorter (3 km) but they can offer both husky dog sledding in the case of snow and with a specially made cart on wheels in the case of no snow. Here as well you have a chance to swop so both of you can enjoy the feeling of riding the sled/cart. If you think that 3km sledding is not enough you can have a 5 min break and enjoy another ride on 3 km track. Afterwards you can have a walk to nearby located watchtower for a lovely view over the forests.
The Riga Dog Sledding Tour season is very dependent on the weather; if we have decent amounts of snow on the ground the tours will be operating, generally the best months are December to March.
