We booked the husky sledding, with Jans as our guide. He was great took time to point out various points as we drove to our destination in Cesis, we arrived at the destination where we met with the husky team and their beautiful huskies, we had time to meet each huskie and learn and see their personalities. We were given a detailed instruction on how to steer and mush the dogs. It was a fantastic 5-6km run one way and then swapped with my partner for the return. Its safe to say i enjoyed every minute of todays trip and cannot recommend them enough for this experience. Thank you so much for the memories. And of course to Jans for showing us parts of latvia we may of missed had he not shown us!

We throughly enjoyed the Husky Sledding Tour, our guide Jans was amazing, he is very proud and passionate about his country sharing lots of knowledge with us about the history of Latvia and historic monuments, he took us to many different stops along the way and gave us a full authentic Latvian experience. The Husky Tour is a must do, it’s so much fun with amazing scenery, the people that own the dogs are lovely and you can see the dogs are well cared for. Jans gave us some great recommendations of places to eat and drink which we also enjoyed, the tour with Jans was like being with an old friend and he puts so much effort into taking photos/making a video which is sent across after the tour. Thank you Jans!

The highlight of your Riga trip!
Total joy! An amazing day full of endorphins cuddling the beautiful huskies and then getting pulled through the snowy landscape by six very excited and keen huskies.
Jans picked us up from our airbnb in the centre of Riga and drove us deep into the Latvian countryside for about 1h 10min. We could pet the huskies and take photos before the ride. The sledding took about 20-25 min. Afterwards, we enjoyed more time with the huskies, had a cup of hot tea and tried a few local spirits and snacks with Jans and the dog owners.

On the way back to Riga, Jans was also eager to show us some other parts of the Lativan countryside on the way back and we stopped by really lovely giftshops, caves, and other hidden gems. We didn’t quite have time to stop by Sigulda as we were in a rush but he also offered to do that.
Overall, a really fun experience, definitely worth the price and taking out a day from your trip to Riga!

We had a last minute booking for the husky tours and thoroughly enjoyed our time! We had a wonderful driver Oskar who told us all about Latvia on the drive and was infectiously enthusiastic!
The dogs were beautiful and you could tell the owner loved them and knew them all individually.
We also had a number of pictures and a video sent to us afterwards of the experience which was a lovely touch
We will recommend Jans and this tour to others visiting Latvia

December 10, 2023

Great experience and excellent guide with a lot of information about the dogs and also about Riga and its surroundings!
I highly recommend to go on this trip!

We did the husky tour with this company, completely faultless as a trip. Communication was great, we were picked up and dropped off by a really cool driver. The tour was incredible, with some traditional Latvian drinks. Would absolutely recommend to those in Riga

December 15, 2023

December 15, 2023

The huskey sledding was an amazing experience. Run by a lovely family who were very kind and welcoming. The dogs were extremely friendly and playful.
There was home made mulled wine and biscuits after the session and great video footage was taken for us. Overal was an amazing experience and If anyone is visiting Riga I highly recommend booking with this company!

Great experience!!!!!!!!!!
The experience with huskies was amazing. Totally worth it. Jan is a great guide and we have the best time with him. He was very helpful and he made our day special.

December 17, 2023

It was a very nice experience. We first met the guide Oskar, who was really very nice and helpful.
After a one-hour drive from our hotel in Riga to the starting point, we got to know the husky dogs. They were all very friendly and playful.
The Husky sled tour was a really great experience. After the tour there were drinks and snacks and we were then in a winery. There we were allowed to taste different wines and schnapps. We recommend this tour as a must for a visit in Riga 🙂

Unforgettable Latvian Adventure!
I had an incredible experience with this tour company! Jans, my tour guide, was exceptionally kind and knowledgeable. The husky sledding in the Latvian countryside was a highlight, and Jans shared fascinating information about huskies, Latvia’s history, and more. He took his time, captured fantastic photos and videos, making the tour memorable. Exploring the rural town of Līgatne, indulging in a small winery tasting, and visiting historical sites added extra charm to the journey. Highly recommend this tour for a delightful and enriching experience!

Passeio sensacional, guia extremamente atencioso e prestativo, recomendo! Realmente uma experiência inesquecível!!!

January 1, 2024

This trip was absolutely amazing.
Jans is a very warm hearted and welcoming guide that you like to spend time with.
My partner and I had the chance to do this unique dog sledding tour and make an unforgettable Riga experience.
The dogs are lovely and friendly, you will easily get along.

We would love to come back and take another tour with Jans for sure.

January 2, 2024

Amazing experience with the best guide, Jans.
He was all dedicated to me and my family and the tour went beyond the dog sledding.
Jans also showed us the villages around the area and gave us a lot of interesting information about Latvia and its history.
The dogs are beautiful and very friendly even with our 3 years/old who loved every minute of it.
We recommend the tour 100%. Very much worth it!

Jans was our amazing tour guide and looked after us all impeccably. He looked after our every need, including placing extra care and attention to our young son and baby daughter with us in -18°C temperatures, he truly went above and beyond! The husky sledding was the most fabulous life experience and the husky cuddles were amazing (our son in particular was grinning ear to ear…and says HUGE thanks)! On top of all of that, Jans very kindly gave us a personalised tour of some of the local areas between Riga and Ligatne on our journey to and from the husky sledding experience. We cannot recommend this company enough and hope you all have as an amazing experience as we did. Thank you again so much Jans and the team at from us all.

Absolutely fantastic day! Our host Oscar was amazing. Pick up at the hotel and drive out to the husky’s took about one hour. Comfortable car and easy journey. We had lots of time to cuddle the husky’s before the sledding which was so much fun! Hot drinks and a fire helped to keep us warm on a -19 day! On the way back we did a detour to a beautiful village in the valley and visited a winery. Highly recommend this company and this was a real highlight of our trip to Riga.

January 7, 2024

We went with a group of 9 friends on the husky tour. The tour is really well organised with very nice people. It was an experience to never forget!! I would really recommend!!

January 7, 2024

What an amazing experience from the start to the end. Our guide, Jans, couldn’t be any better. He does his job by passion and make the entire experience even more exciting. I highly recommend this tour. When I’m back in Riga, will go again.

January 11, 2024

The dog sledding trip was the highlight of our short holiday in Riga and we were really glad we decided to do it. Jans was a great host – he picked us up from the hotel and took us directly to the location about an hour outside Riga. Once there we met Nickolas and learnt about his dogs and sledding (Nickolas and his dogs race for real in the season all over the Baltic area) and then we were off ‘mushing’ down the track – a unique experience.
Afterwards a hot mulled wine and some Black Balsam soon warmed us up and the we were off with Jans to visit places of interest in the area with a short stop for some lunch before being taken back to our hotel in Riga.
A great day out!
