Departure from the hotel heading the Tierra Mayor Valley, our Musher instructor welcomes us by giving us an introductory talk to the World of sled dogs, visiting the hatchery. We then began the sled driving instruction, knowing the techniques of assembly and handling of the same. We put the harnesses to the dogs, we hook them to the sled, and to SIGA's cry !!! Our experience begins.This dog sled adventure is an intense and fun trip! As we move along our sleigh caravan we enter the snowy valley, culminating in the hachero's refuge, where we will replace calories with a snack; After resting, mushers and dogs continued the journey, crossing forest, frozen rivers and experiencing the magic white silence.
