Take a sleigh ride through the forests and snow-covered landscapes with husky dogs. Learn how to set up your own sled that day and meet more than 120 dogs. Then experience various winter activities and enjoy a small traditional tasting of Russian tea and small fine pastries.
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 a Husky Village - 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, you will let the dogs meet you. Yes, this exact way, not vice versa. 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. You will enjoy a 4-kilometer ride on a professional husky sled in the snowy forest passing by the Moscow River. While the first group is riding, 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.
When your trip is done, Natalia will welcome you to enjoy a traditional Russian hot herbal tea and freshly cooked “oladushki” (Russian pancakes). Moreover, in a café you will be able to buy some homemade cookies and souvenirs.
