with a team of Sled Dogs
This fantastic experience will give you the opportunity to drive solo with your own team of sled dogs. There is nothing quite like the noise and heart pumping excitement of the sled dogs. Driving you through the frozen landscape of ice and snow to places only accessible with dogs.
Before we set off, your guide will provide you with a course on how to drive the sled followed by a health and safety talk. Then your dogs will be hooked up to your sled, your anchor will be lifted and you will be off on your adventure. Your journey will take you through our mountainous landscape, and will be complete with fika (Swedish coffee and cake).
In general, no prior experience is needed to drive the sleds. All drivers and passengers will receive the correct amount of dogs for their weight. A balanced ratio will be applied so we do not overload our sleds.
Due to the fact that dog sledding is an active sport, it is an advantage to have a good fitness level. For instance, our dogs may need your assistance to get up hills.
