Husqvarna Tour is an international, mid-distance sled dog race. It is a very spectacular sport, passionate and full of positive emotions. The race is traditionally organised early during the year, at the outdoors of Jakuszycka Glade near Szklarska Poręba, Poland. During this time, fighting frost and snow, the teams must race through a nearly 300km route.
Mushers ride in several categories depending on the number of dogs in the team – in the limited category the team has no more than 6 dogs, while in the open – from 8 to 10 dogs. The third category is ski-jouring – a race of skiers pulled by dogs. In 2015 there will be another edition of this racing event.
