If you’ve ever wanted to go dog sledding in the high country, Siberian husky lover Jake Greaves is your man.

Story By Martin Auldist

Jake Greaves owns and operates Howling Husky Sled Dog Tours, a company that since 2010 has been offering genuine husky sled-dog tours in the scenic Victorian alpine regions around Mt Baw Baw, Omeo and Lake Mountain. Using teams of eight dogs selected from his 29 huskies, Jake conducts trips varying in length from 15 minutes up to an hour and a half. During each trip, up to two guests rest comfortably in the sled while the dogs – and the guide – do all the hard work. It is a unique, enjoyable and at times thrilling way to gain a different perspective of Victoria’s snowfields.
