In the main stage, the passenger will have greater or lesser autonomy according to the evaluation that the musher makes of the passenger’s performance during the training phase. The main sled tour has an expected duration of around 2 hours.
"We left the city Ushuaia and stopped after a few kilometers to walk across the forest and reach the place for our dog sledding activity. It was out first time and it was just great. 13 kilometers and 90 mn of slegging in a snowy landscape with Miguel and his dogs. We could share the love of Miguel for these dogs. No shout or scream, Miguel just speak with his natural voice to them and they react accordingly. They work all together as a team and not as master/animals. Great experience ! Thank you."
