If you are an animal lover and have a bent for control, leadership and raw speed, this may be for you. What better way to see the forests, valleys and expanses of the mountains than with a bit of ‘mushing’. You will learn basic commands and how to handle the sled. Then hold on and enjoy the ride! For the less adventurous, just enjoy the experience from the comfort of the sled and be driven into wonderland.

You will be provided with all the kit, get instruction on sub-aqua techniques and be shown the underwater wonderland in winter.Aquaventure
