UnderDog New Zealand
We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for a wonderful, amazing experience. We were so lucky to discover that your dog sledding is based at Wanaka, and that we could have what I’m sure will be a once in a life time experience driving and riding in a sled. You’re dogs are beautiful, and we really enjoyed learning about them from you both.
What We Do

Learn about these phenomenal animals and feel the thrill first hand of what its like to ride in the basket of the sled or take command of your own sled dog team.

We can cater for corporate events, customized family outings or a special occasion. It can range from a short trip to a multi-day sled dog training camp. Or maybe a scenic flight by helicopter to bring you in to your own dog team high up in the mountains.Adventure Mark
