Aurora Austral – Patagonia Husky


mushing day



Discover, by the hand a professional guide, one of the most beautiful mountain areas in Chile, at the very feet of the active Villarrica Volcano and the Villarrica National Park. 
Spend a full day under one of the most active Volcanos in the world, and get an environmentally friendly, exciting and new scope on nature and winter in the breathtaking south of Chile.
Learn how to take care of “your” sled dogs and how to steer a team of Huskies while being led by a professional guide. Usually all our Tours are guided by Konrad himself.
This tour will bring you close to the huskies, and give you a better understanding of the world of mushing and dog sledding. Interact with your “own” dogs and enroll to work with them, as a team. They will reward you with their passion for running and the occasional husky kisses.
At the end of the tour we will sit together, enjoy some snacks and drinks, and there will be time for sharing good stories and asking anything you ever wondered about dog sledding and huskies.
