Languages available: French, English, Spanish, Russian (choice during the check-out)
Meet your guide in the morning and get onboard a minibus to go outside of Russian capital to turn your day into a snowy marvel. Your destination point is one of the biggest dog kennels in Russia, located in a picturesque area on the shore of Moscow River.
Once you are there, the fairytale starts with a warm welcome of Natalia, the owner of the Village, who is passionate about looking after huskies for 10 years. She will tell you about the wonderful history of northern dogs’ breeds and about their adventurous lives next to great explorers. Right after inspiring stories and warm tea, time will come to meet the dogs. This place is not a zoo, it is a place where abandoned and lost dogs found their home, where they can train and eat properly, and, of course, where they can show their absolute love for humans.
After hugging 120 huskies, you will be shown how to prepare a sled by the professional “kayur” (the instructor who is driving the dog sled). And here your adventure starts.
4-Kilometer package (capacity 12 people):
You go for a 4km ride in the heart of the snow-covered forest alongside the river. If you are a big group, you'll go separately (in groups of 3 to 4): while some go for a ride on the sleds, others enjoy their time tubing from the hill, walking around, sitting by the fireplace near the tipi glamping area or visiting the farm with goats, geese, chickens and black Vietnamese pigs.
17-Kilometer package (capacity 6 people):
You go for a 17km ride in the nature (about 2h). You will cross the woods on sleds, ride along the river, and will even stop for a hot tea and some cakes in the middle of the excursion: the best way to enjoy this unique dog-sledding experience!
When your trip is done, Natalia will welcome you to enjoy a traditional Russian lunch with hot herbal tea and freshly cooked “oladushki” (Russian pancakes). Moreover, in a café you will be able to buy some homemade cookies and souvenirs.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: This tour requires a certain amount of snow as the sleds can be used only on snow tracks, which are prepared especially for dog-sledding. If there is not enough snow, we do another popular Russian activity : Dog Trekking. You go for a 5-km walk in the nature with a husky-dog in front strapped to you. A great experience shared with the dog you’ll be going with!
