Enjoy a dog sledding adventure across snow-covered meadows in the scenic Tatra Mountains. The small village of Donovaly in the Low Tatras National Park has grown in popularity thanks to its reputation as a world-class ski resort and hosting of international dog sledding events. The terrain here is hillside meadows and forest trails; it offers great conditions for dog sledding. First of all, professional mushers will teach you the basic principles of handling the sled and you will get to know your huskies. After lunch at a traditional restaurant (not included), you then head off on trails that have been picked by your crew to give you the best dog sledding experience.

Map & itinerary

Meet your guide at one of our many High Tatras pickup points and transfer to the start point of your dog sledding adventure in Donovaly. Here you will be briefed on the day’s excursion and will have about five hours of dog sledding in total. Your driver will then return you to your starting village.

Please note, while we mention Donovaly as the location for your dog sledding, this may change as a result of snow conditions. We will decide what’s best for your adventure on the day.
