Your family sled dog safari

Have you ever thought of spending your afternoon with your children a little differently? If the answer is no, but you are up for it, we have the solution for you! You will have a great time with your family, surrounded by nature with the help of amazing and qualified staff.

Situated in Aviemore, at the foot of the Cairngorm Mountain Range, the Cairngorm Sled dog Centre offers a wide range of activities for the whole family. From Kennel & Museum tours to Sled dog trips and safaris.

All trips and visits are strictly for 12-year olds and over, for obvious safety reasons.

Snow is not essential for your visit, but you must book in advance for any tours or visits you are planning.

We believe it’s a unique experience for any family and especially since this centre is family run, the staff know the importance of having an amazing time all together. We would like to share with you some activities they offer, as we think they will certainly make your day!

The sled dog safari will take you into some of the best scenic routes in the Cairngorms, with breath-taking panoramic views. The fun first begins when you arrive at the remote camp, you will be hands on helping the thirsty sled dog team with water.

You can also experience a real training session with your sled dog in the remote forests.

The Aviemore sled dog museum and kennel tour will let you meet the team - 37 sled dogs! You will get an insight into the history of the sport and the life of these amazing dogs in their fantastic home – the Cairngorms.

The Remote camp sled dog experience is one of their most popular tours. It starts with a walking, talking visit to the dog yard and mushing barn, followed by the chance to be hands on with the sled dogs. You will then start a remote forest training session using a 6X6 Sled dog ATV.

With plenty of choices, we are sure that you will have the best day out with your family at the Cairngorm Sled dog Centre.
