I’ve wanted to go dog sledding for years but I’m not the type to pack my bags and head to the snow. Mostly because wheelchairs and snow don’t really mix. However, when the opportunity arose I couldn’t miss the chance to go dog sledding!
Australian Sled Dog Tours run tours at Mt Buller, a popular alpine resort in Victoria. Who knew you could go husky dog sledding in the snow in Australia, right?
When we arrived we were greeted by dozens of gorgeous huskies and a stunning view over Mt Buller. It was magic!
When it was my turn to go dog sledding my friends lifted me from my wheelchair onto the sled. The Australian Sled Dog Tours team were really helpful too. They made sure I was comfortable, bringing extra cushions and even creating a makeshift seat belt.
Watching the dogs get attached to the gangline was so much fun because they were so happy. It was impossible not to be super excited for the tour watching them! We took off so fast and sped down the mountain. I couldn’t believe I was really dog sledding!
