To skydive, bungee jump, ride a helicopter or hot air balloon, or to swim with whale sharks — these are the usual things included on an adrenaline junkie's bucket list. These really are exciting activities to try, but if you're down for a unique experience this holiday season why don't you try dogsledding?
Dogsledding is a thrilling ride that lets dogs pull a sled across the snow. It is surely a fun way to experience a winter holiday, so, here are 4 destinations where you could best do it:
Whether you're in it to see reindeers and moose out in the wild, to catch the Northern Lights in person, or to simple have a fun ride with 12 Alaskan huskies, Lapland could be a good option for dogsledding in the Arctic wilderness. It may be a challenge to control the sled if you intend to, but rest assured that the dogs are well-trained enough. There are tours here that offer accommodations in cabins where you could stay or stop by.
As a common means of transportation, dogsledding or dog mushing has become both an attraction and sport in Alaska. After the Trail Sled Dog Race every March, you could avail of dogsledding tours in Anchorage, Fairbanks, or Skagway.
Dubbed as the "Sled Dog Capital of the U.S.", Minnesota is home to a stunning scenery that makes a dogsledding experience even better. There, you could find a lodge that caters to visitors who would like to try this activity. Even as a first-timer, you will surely enjoy the ride because the well-trained dogs, together with a sled dog guide, would tell you what to do and could even let you maneuver your sled.
Going through snow-covered trails in sleds pulled by mighty Alaskan dogs may not be the usual extreme activity that everyone hopes to experience, but it is definitely an adventure worth remembering. If you'll be taking a trip to experience dogsledding soon, take a SweetEscape photographer with you to capture the best moments on your holiday trip.

Some of you health conscious Escapist might worry that this summer holiday might mess up your fitness regime. On the other hand, you really want to enjoy the holiday, with all the experiences (and good food!) that it offers. Worry no more! Indonesian health and fitness influencer Andrea Dian shares her tips and tricks to keep you fit and healthy during this summer holiday, while still actually enjoying your holiday!
Actually I do my work outs not just to prepare me for holidays. I view my work outs and exercises as long term health investments. The bonus for me is to have my 'Summer Body' all year long! However, I do some extra preparation if I know that I'm going to the beach for holiday. I eat cleaner and focus my exercises to tone my abs and legs. I also keep myself hydrated and have enough rest.
Holiday is the time fory ou to eat everything and anything you want! I don't believe on diet during holiday. However, I still set aside some 30 minutes in the morning for my daily work out. I also prefer to go around my holiday destination on foot! It's a good exercise that you can do without setting aside any special time. Of course, always bring your trusted water bottle with you every where you go so that your body is not dehydrated.
I would eat one portion of salad every morning. You can make your own dressing to keep it healthy and clean! I myself personally like my salad dressing to be olive oil, lemon, and sea salt. I always drink fruit juices in the morning, and sometimes jamu to keep myself fit and fresh.
