Lose yourself in the deep, icy blue eyes of a pack of playful huskies. And in the lush, picturesque location of Muotathal.

My Swiss Story: Huskies and a slice of heaven


Huskies are working dogs and therefore very strong and always raring to go. Their size and wolf-like appearance can be intimidating for some, but in behavior, they are just like attention-seeking puppies.

They will happily lie belly up for a generous rub and lick children lovingly without a care. Give your adrenaline a boost and the children a time of their lives with an unforgettable adventure with these beautiful dogs.

And the best thing is that, you can visit the Husky Lodge all year round for the most unique and exciting activities that let you enjoy the region in all its glory.
