BREAKING TRAIL: DOG SNOWSHOEING IN THE VIENNA ALPS

On this adventurous backcountry tour up mountainous forested terrain, we will most likely be the first ones to break trail aided by the pulling-power of our two Snow-Dogs Obsidian and Viera. Downhill we're going to have a fast and easy descent with our RuckXbobs. Sometimes we’ll hike on snowy trails, sometimes we’ll just enter the deep woods. It’s up to you! Guide Georg knows these mountains like his second home and will guide you in and out of the wilderness. This tour is a perfect combination of adventure and nature-immersion!

Snowshoes, gators and PackSleds (RuckXbobs) are included in the tour.

Available for all levels of experience:
Beginners to Advanced

DOG SLEDDING IN THE VIENNA ALPS

Hop on a dogsled and venture on remote forest trails with the pulling power of British Lab Obsidian and Alaskan Husky Viera. This tour is a fast and far reaching journey through marvelous scenery and backcountry. Although our dogs can pull up to 4 to 5 times of their own body weight, steep sections will have to be overcome on foot or by pushing the sled. Sometimes we'll need to break trail in deep snow, other times we'll fly down the mountain on forestry roads. Only through the combined effort of mushers and dogs the goal of maximum mobility and speed can be achieved.
Come and join us on this fun ride through mountains, canyons and forests.

BOBTRACK BUILDING & SLEDDING WORKSHOP

Sledding is fun! But it’s getting even funner when building your own bobtrack to sled even faster and more controlled. In this workshop we’re joining forces to construct a perfect bobtrack according to our wishes: with turns, jumps, tunnels and more. The workshop demands teamwork, is fun and short-lived. Our dogs are of course going to taking part and will gladly pull you in your sled part of the way. If you're looking for exciting winter activities, this is for you!

GOING NATIVE ALASKA STYLE: DOG-SLEDDING AND IGLOO-BUILDUING

Few things top the exhilarating feeling when pulled by a team of dogs. This is your chance to experience it for the first time in a controlled environment and under the guidance of musher Georg.
Additionally Georg will show you how to build an Iglu and learn about Native American and Inuit ways of life on the Alaskan frontier and beyond.
To round things up, we'll set up a private diashow and talk at our home cinema in which we recite stories from our journeys to the American West, where we also spent one winter in a tipi in the forest close to Yellowstone National Park. Hot drinks and snacks will be provided.

A great experience for the whole family, groups, survivalists and nature enthusiasts - it's a combination of the best we have to offer as winter activities!

Everybody can do it!

WILD WINTER HIKING: IMMERSE IN WINTER

If there is one thing that's wilder than hiking the Vienna Alps in summer, it is hiking them in winter.
It is wilder because conditions are harsher: it's colder, thick snow makes traveling harder, more strenuous and creates additional hazards.
Nevertheless, the winter landscape hosts incredible beauty and fresh tracks reveal the active animal life in the mountains and forests.
Pack up for a winter expedition into the mountains under Georg's guidance and be rewarded by its treasures.
You can book this tour with or without dogs.

Snowshoes and gators are included in the tour.

Recommended level of experience:
Intermediate to Advanced
