Full Day Experience
Immerse yourself into the life of a musher
Have you ever thought about taking up the sport of dog sledding? Then we’ve got a once in a lifetime opportunity for you: a full day experience which will give you an introduction into what’s involved in the life of a musher.
Your day will start bright and early at the kennel, saying good morning to all of our dogs. You will receive a brief course on dog sledding and a health and safety talk, after which it’s time to get your team ready and prepare your sled under the watchful eye of your guide. Then your anchor is lifted and your adventure begins – your heart pumping, your senses heightened, your team eagerly pulling you through frozen wilderness of ice and snow.
During the journey we will stop for fika (Swedish coffee and cake) and lunch and an opportunity to take photos. After your journey is complete, you will help take all of the dogs home to settle down for the night.
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.
Good clothing and equipment is absolutely essential to making to most of your tour – especially in the mountains where the weather changes quickly. Please carefully read our Tour Kit List before your visit.
We are very particular about health and safety. Our aim is to provide you with a high quality tour, thus leaving you with a positive experience.
We do advise you to take out your own personal insurance which should include a cancellation policy, in case the weather does cause a problem. Subsequently, if you wear expensive clothing or bring expensive equipment, we advise you to take out a policy which will cover any accidental damage or loss.
