Siberian Husky is a breed originated in the easternmost region of Russian Siberia, called Chukchi, by the inhabitants that used the animals as a help for hunting and a mean of transportation.  

It is a robust breed, resistant in extreme conditions as cold and fatigue. This makes them the perfect choice as sled dogs, the way they were deployed in Alaska during the Gold Rush.

Today, with the spreading of motor sledges, the Siberian Husky is used mostly in sports and for companionship. As a matter of fact, sleddog is becoming more and more a discipline practiced by enthusiasts dog lovers and environmentally conscious vacationers.

Siberian Huskies in this page are from Centro Sleddog Cervinia, in the hamlet of Avouil, where you can rent a sledge with the assistance of an instructor, for an excursion in the valley along the Marmore Creek.
