Dog joring means being pulled by a dog. When dog joring, dogs are wearing a harness that is connected with a lead to a belt around a person’s hips. Thus trained dogs will pull on the lead which helps to reduce physical intensity of a hike by a third as well as increase the speed of travel. It feels a lot like a T-bar lift in ski resorts.
No matter what season it is, our Alaskan Husky Viera and our British Lab Obsidian will help carry the weight and will take turns in pulling you up the Rax, Europe’s largest high plateau, the Schneeberg, the easternmost alpine (over 2000m high) peak of the Alps, or the Schneealpe, a vast protected wildlife area. Adjusted to your hiking skills and level of endurance, we will choose the perfect ascent route up to the wild and magical landscape of the Rax Alpe.
If you are a beginner or simply prefer to hike on the plateau we will take up the cable car to the Rax at the additional cost of the tickets for yourself and the guide. Depending on your preference, we can either then hike down or again take the lift.
