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.
