Mt Buller Sled Dogs Tours

Are you looking for something new to do these school holidays with the kids or just wanting something to cross of bucket list or experience? I've got it for you!

I have always had a sled dog ride on my bucket list as I am just in-love with the Siberian Husky breed of dogs - hence why I have huskies of my own. 
My love for the siberian husky breed began nearly 10 years ago and shortly after I got a male husky and then a year after we got him a girlfriend: Nikane & Tiarah. 

Nikane - male
Tiarah - female
They're beautiful dogs and are one of the more good looking breeds I say. They're hard work with their needs but the bestest friend you can have within a dog. 

I was really excited to hear that Mt Buller have just added Sled Dog rides under their belt starting as of this year!!

Mt Buller has diversified its product offering this year through the introduction of dog sled rides, delivered by internationally renowned Australian Sleddog Tours. The tours will be available throughout August and September, using a team of 21 strong purebred Siberian Huskies to take guests on trails around the resort, enabling them to enjoy breathtaking alpine scenery and take in some unique views of the Mt Buller Village. Director of Marketing, Sales & Business Development for Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management, Amber Gardner is looking forward to having another exciting product to offer guests. “Here at Mt Buller we’re always striving to give our visitors the best experience possible both on and off the slopes, and this snow season offers more than ever with the addition of sled dog tours. It’s a really special activity that allows guests to truly immerse themselves in the alpine environment, and see parts of the resort that they wouldn’t normally be able to access.”

Australian Sled Dog Tours will cater for couples, adults and children, with tours running for 45 minutes. Tours include a meet and greet with the Huskies, a photo session and sled dog tour. Each sled allows for two to five people per tour. All tours also include information sessions on the tradition of sled dog racing and its history in Australia. Making the experience even more memorable, Australian Sled Dog Tours produce merchandise for guests to purchase including photos of Huskies, calendars, miniature model sled dog teams, along with Husky toy puppies and postcards.

Tour prices
$155 per adult and $80 per child (3 – 13 yrs). 
$400 for a family of four (2 adults and 2 children).

For further details or to make a booking visit the website or call lead musher Brett Hadden on 0418 230 982. 

Mt Buller is enjoying heavy snowfalls as a series of cold fronts cross Victoria, with skiing and snowboarding commencing today at the resort. Great holiday packages are available throughout the winter, offering value for money and the convenience of staying right in the Village.
