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.

My husband and I did the full mushing experience today, and it was fantastic from start to finish! Despite the horrendously high winds (thanks, Storm Doris) Vickie and Russ were really enthusiastic and made sure we got the most out of our experience. Vickie explained a lot about how the dogs' welfare has to always come first, and paired us... More

I booked this experience for me and my daughter for her 16th birthday. This was a amazing experience one which we will both never forget. Vicky and Russ are very experienced and know their dogs very well and ensured that we were paired up with the appropriate dogs that suited our confidence and ability levels. My daughter was not very... More

Booked for my boyfriends 21st and was not disappointed. Amazing experience for both of us. Dogs are very well looked after and very happy, they obviously love what they do! Very relaxed atmosphere so you're able to ask questions freely. Highly recommend 😊

My husband booked this experience for my birthday & I couldn't have enjoyed it more. Meeting the dogs, Vicky & the team was a pleasure. I really liked the sledging & would have loved to have done more. The dogs are beautiful & so well looked after. We had 3 goes at sledging, as we became more confident more dogs... More

Don’t miss the experience of a lifetime The whole event left me almost speechless. It was a marvellous morning made perfect by Vickie and her team (both two legged and four legged). There were so many things I could say but I think the most important was display of the care for the dogs. No dog was allowed to pull... More

What an amazing experience with knowledgeable and extremely friendly team. From start to finish this was a joy and I'd fully recommend anyone trying this. Throw yourself into the action, muck in and you'll enjoy it even more. It's great to see such passion, we could have stayed all day

I bought the 'Full mushing experience' as a Christmas present, from the first email Vicky was really very accommodating and I was so disorganised it took me months from the enquiry, payment through to booking the date and she was never anything other than helpful and engaging. On the day I paid for myself as a spectator and both of... More

This is most definitely worth doing a great experience. Fabulous dogs. Great people and training. Educational you could easily get hooked. My son and I did this together if I did not live so far away I'd be back next week for more !! 5 stars is not enough!
