Husky Sleigh Rides in Front of the Matterhorn


It starts at almost 3000 metres above sea level. A guide will take you from Trockener Steg to the nearby one-kilometre-long circuit. There you will get to know the huskies. The experienced musher (husky owner) tells you interesting facts about the dogs while you pet them. Then the animals are hooked up to the sled and off they go! While you enjoy the ride, the musher steers the sledge and calls out commands to the animals. Meanwhile, the guide takes photos of you. The event lasts a total of one and a half hours, including the hike. On the circuit, a sledge pulled by 8 to 10 huskies. 1 to 2 adults may sit on the sled. Children under 12 years of age may ride on the sledge together with an adult.
