Flying Solo



This is a stand-alone session for you to get the feel for dry land mushing.

This will award you with a Bronze level Musher Certificate. This session introduces you to learning to drive one or two huskies.

We choose the huskies carefully to suit their new driver. Full tuition and one-to-one support throughout the session. Remember, the driver has the brakes so can control the speed at all times!


You can book our Flying Solo Mushing Course either on a weekly basis tailored to suit you, or follow up the initial 2 hour session with a 2 day course. During these sessions you will learn to communicate and control a team of huskies. One or 2 people can participate in these sessions, after which, they will be flying solo, with supervision. Upon successful completion you will be awarded our Horse and Husky Silver Musher Certificate!

Please contact Sonia for details of the bespoke courses with accommodation provided. A great mini-break with a difference.

Once you have achieved your Silver Musher Certificate you will qualify to experience our gold experience.


Once you hold our silver award you are able to drive a team of huskies on more off-road terrain without the assistance of staff. While you will be supervised, it will be you who is in control of your flight crew.

This is to extend the husky experience for the musher who has been awarded our certificate and is judged competent to take a small team of dogs out on the trail. You will be accompanied by an experienced musher who will advise and support you.
