A Taste of the Arctic – Transun Blogger Event
Last weekend we gave 14 bloggers an experience they are never likely to forget – a husky sledge ride through the Cumbrian landscape!
On arrival at the Low Wray campsite, near Wray Castle, the excited bloggers were met by Sonia from tour operator, Horse & Husky. Sonia gave them a quick introduction to the picturesque region which stands on the shores of Windermere.
Then, the event they had all been waiting for; meeting the dogs! Sonia’s lovely, affectionate, re-homed huskies were a delight to greet, licking people at every opportunity.
Let Slip The Dogs
After being shown how to operate the ‘rig’ (the sledge) without the huskies, they were then shown how the dogs are hitched up. So, harness in hands and dog commands learned, they were thrown in to the action with the huskies.
Sonia has steady dogs for beginners, which were perfect for the novice dry-land mushers. As they progressed and got more confident with the huskies, they were able to use the speedier dogs.
So they not only got to see the beautiful Cumbrian countryside at a leisurely pace, they were also able to get the thrill of speeding through it too!
A winter’s day can be rather chilling, but our bloggers soon warmed up when they retired to the campsite café. Tired but happy, they could reflect on an exciting day.
Understandably the bloggers wanted to take plenty of photos of the experience and share it on social media. You can see all of this yourselves using the #ExperienceTransun hashtag on Twitter.
Of course, a husky ride is pretty exciting wherever you go, but imagine a husky safari through the snow in Lapland as you prepare to meet Santa! Transun are specialists in not only Santa trips to Lapland, but also Arctic Spirit trips to experience exhilarating winter snow activities in the Lapland wilderness.
