Clwyd West MS Darren Millar and North Wales MS Sam Rowlands have both praised Wales’ first and only outdoor activity provider offering husky rides and sleddog experiences after paying them a visit last week.
The two Welsh Conservative politicians were both impressed by Mynedd Sleddog Adventures, which is situated in the county of Conwy, within the forest trails of Bwlch Hafod Einion near Llyn Brenig and Alwen Reservoir, after receiving a tour of the attraction from company director Joe Swiffen.
During their visit they were introduced to the team of 18 dogs, made up from a range of breeds including Siberian Huskies, Scandinavian Hounds, Alaskan Huskies and a German Short Haired Pointer.
The attraction, which opened in 2019, offers opportunities for individuals, families and groups to enjoy their very own exhilarating husky rides and experiences with their team of racing sled dogs and is proving popular due to its uniqueness.
Commenting after his visit, Darren said:
“It was great to visit Mynedd Sleddog Adventures and to learn more about the amazing experiences they provide and I commend Joe and Mark for all they have achieved since they opened the attraction in 2019, particularly given the challenges of the pandemic.
“I am delighted that the first and only attraction of this kind in Wales is based here in my constituency. It is already proving popular and I’m sure that as word spreads about the exciting experiences on offer, more will be flocking to visit.
“I thank Joe and Mark for taking the plunge and providing this fantastic attraction here in North Wales and wish them continued success for the future.”
“Joe had a dream and with Mark’s support, together they have realised it. After many years of training and racing sled dogs in the UK and abroad, they decided to embark on this exciting adventure and what they have created it quite remarkable.
“Sadly the weather was too hot for Darren and myself to enjoy a ride, but we did get to meet the impressive team of dogs, who are all beautiful.
“I urge anyone looking for a unique experience to look into visiting Mynedd Sleddog Adventures, who guarantee to provide you with an experience you will never forget!”
The adventures on offer at Mynedd Sleddog Adventures includes:
Meet the Team - A unique opportunity for individuals, families or groups to immerse themselves in sleddog sports; meet our working sled dogs, interact with them and watch a race team training session through the forest. Followed by a cup of hot chocolate and stories of sleddog sports and racing through history.
Race Team - An amazing fast paced experience, taking a husky ride on our passenger cart, pulled by a 6-dog team of racing dogs through the beautiful undulating South Alwen Forest trails, surrounded by picturesque open moorland, rolling Welsh hills and the Snowdon range in the distance. Afterwards, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and stories of sleddog sports and racing through history.
