Dash through the snow on a dog sled!
Run through the winter wonderland on a dog sled with beautiful snow-capped mountains in the background!
Trained dogs love to run! Become a musher, the driver of the sled, and race through the snowy fields by directing the dogs and sled. Detailed instruction from the guide makes this an easy enough activity for beginners.
Feel the speed of the dog sledding on the long course, or take the dogs on a refreshing run through the forest course! After the run, you can play with the dogs and show your appreciation for the “good job” they did. The experience of mushing, from preparation, to riding the sled, and finally playing with these beautiful dogs, is sure to be a long-lasting memory.
There are a number of various programs which offer mushing. Mushing Works in Shikaoi offers the “Solo Challenge Plan,” giving you a chance to test the dogs’ speed. There is also the Furano Trekking Support Yuma in Furano, with its 50-meter straight course. Lastly, there is the NPO Donkoro Outdoor School in Minami Furano, offering a 16-kilometer round-trip day tour.
