DOGS The refuge
counts with a Siberian Husky and Alaskan kennel that produces our racing
and draught dogs. Along with them, Eco, the great Alaskan white wolf majestically
keeps guards of the movements around the refuge.
RACING AND PACK SLEDS
The hand made sled manufacture has a millenary tradition that comes from
the countries around the North Pole. In Akeaata this task has been maintained
for sixteen years. In a small workshop, the noble patagonian lenga is
prepared, curved, and pressed to craft the sleds. These are sold along
with different accessories all around the Patagonia and they have reached
France and Spain.
During the winter several activities can be practiced: cross-country skiing,
dog sled tours, trekking in the woods wearing snow rackets. The children
have small sleds available to sled through the snowy ladders. The firesides
during the night gather the bravest people.
During the summer, the sled skies are replace by wheels, horse rides,
and mountain bikes, for tours during the day and night. We always come
back to the refuge where a friendly talk is held by the chimneyís
fire along with a comforting drink.
CATS Modern snow
cats, where we tie a sled when needed, are used in the island, making
thirty minutes rides (2,6 miles) and 4 hours rides (13 miles) allowing
unsuspected sites to be discovered.
