Riga Huskies team

Husky dogs in general are very athletic, active, enthusiastic, and human-lowing breed, historically used for dog sledding by indigenous people of the Arctic. On another side Huskies are very demanding from their owners and require a lot of attention and daily physical activities. This can be a problem for unprepared, not 100% dedicated owners living in a city environment.

Most of our Husky dogs are taken from dog rescue where they ended due to irresponsible owners overestimating their abilities to tackle the Huskies. Thankfully now they are in good hands and can spread out joy and positive emotions to many people around.

Weather in winter in Latvia/Riga and Husky dog sledding

Husky dog sled rides are offered during wintertime in snowy conditions. The temperature drops below 0 degrees Celsius (32 Fahrenheit) already in November and colds can last until the beginning of March. Winters in Latvia can vary from winter to winter, from cold winters with longer periods of low temperatures to mild winters with often thaws.  This means that Husky dog sledding is weather-sensitive activity and no 100% warranty can be given for the snow and frost.  Nevertheless, in no snow conditions (if the track is free from ice), we offer specially constructed cart on wheels which is pulled by Huskies exactly as the sled and provides the same feeling.

Also in the event of sharp temperature increase puddles of water can develop during the day and freeze down during the night. If this situation is faced then the ride is canceled and money fully refunded.

Book in advance and secure your spot!

As the winter season in Latvia is relatively short and demand for Riga Husky dog sled ride is high, (especially if snow) advance booking (as earlier as better) is necessary.

Winter outdoor wear

Coming to Riga and enjoying winter activities such as Husky dog sled ride or cross country skiing wouldn’t be very pleasant if not properly dressed.

By booking with us you don’t need to bring heavy and large volume winter clothes as we’ll provide you with a pair of winter pants and winter jacket upon request. Several sizes are available! Nevertheless, gloves and winter beanies are needed.
