Short Husky Hikes

For those who are interested in taking one or more dogs for a short walk in the vicinity of the farm, we can easily arrange this after your farm visit and we will just change the fee accordingly. The dogs will definitely appreciate any change in their normal routine!

In the summer, there are a number of tracks to explore, including the GEE HAW maze, the puppy agility trail, the autumn training loop and a beautiful 2km ridge walk that extends out in the centre of the marsh and from which you can often see herds of reindeer grazing. In winter and spring, you will be able to walk around the puppy agility trail or our 2km boundary loop. For the more adventurous, some of the other trails near to the farm (eg the local ridge walk) will be accessible by snowshoe or ski.

Taking part in a GEE HAW maze training session or a puppy agility course trail adds c.30 mins to your standard program. In the GEE HAW product you can either take part in a free-running session with young pups or learn how we use skijoring lines to train our lead dogs to turn right or left. Walking the boundary route or the local ridgeline trail with a dog of your choice will add up to an hour to your overall farm tour.

All of these options can be added on, at short notice, to a standard farm visit if we have staff and dogs available to play with you. You will then just pay the overall price of the product you have chosen since the price of the farm tour is included within the price of these hikes.

We will be happy to show you how to harness your dog and attach yourself to him or her by a skijoring line, (our dogs are not trained to walk to heel on a lead!) and then to hike with you through the forests. Depending on the age of the pups and the hike that you are interested in, it might be possible for some of the pups to accompany us off the lead on all but the puppy agility trail.

Further afield, there are the trails described in the 'Hidden Hetta Hikes' section which take between 2 hours and a day to complete and then we have a variety of multi-day hiking options also available. Please contact us for further information.
