NLIWWe’ve been holding our tongues for some time now but we can finally tell you that Gaynor Leeper, Director of Voyage Active Ltd, and her husband Milos Gonda (who both guide their dog sled tours) will feature in Episode 4 of Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild! It airs on Friday 12th December at 9pm GMT, Channel 5.

In this episode Ben will live with Gaynor and Milos in a small wood cabin, taking on all the chores that are required just to get by in the freezing temperatures of the arctic. The three of them also take a trip in the mountain range between Norway and Sweden, driving their own dog teams, and Ben finds out what it’s like to be responsible for his own team of dogs when there’s a storm coming!

In total we have 40 Alaskan huskies we use for tourism and racing, all of which are trained to a high level to be able to run over long distances through the long winter months in the Arctic. The dogs love to run and when the temperature hits minus 20 degrees C (an average temperature between December and March) it is just about perfect for them to perform!

Be sure to tune in on the 12th and meet (Mr) Waf, the star of our kennel!
