An exciting ride and great fun meeting the 14 huskies. Our 2 mushers, Alex and Ron, were extremely helpful and enthusiastic, especially Alex who went out of his way to find our lost camera which was dropped on the ride. The staff at Eagle Heights made it a very enjoyable day to remember.

another time we would go at end of the season when dogs would be fitter. It was only their 2nd run of the year, and while thrilling, there were lots more stops than we would have liked, because of this. This certainly affected the expectations we had hoped for as the stretches they did do were great.Every thing else provided was excellent and they generously allowed us the freedom of the entire birds of prey centre for as long as we wanted to stay. Would like to repeat it at some stage ideally in the snow!

Great time had on this experience, dog handler was very informative and looked after us well, good experience helping him getting the dogs ready and collecting them. it helped us both being dog lovers. Tip don't wear decent cloths as likely to get a bit messy, pair of sunglasses would be good as well.

A great day out and one we'll remember for a long time. Terrific to be able to get to meet the dogs at such close quarters too.
