After a quick check of your gear, you will meet the dogs and receive an introduction in dogsledding. How to prepare the sled, harnessing the dogs, instructions for handling the sled and how to handle the pack and take care of the dogs and yourself in the mountains.
First there is the excitement of the start but soon we drive in silence into the magnificent arctic landscape, where you can enjoy the tranquility of the wilderness. The path goes through a changing and magical arctic terrain, along rivers, through dales, forests and over hills, all in a frozen landscape that makes you breathless.
The winter above the polar circle is special. It is often quiet and starry. The trees are covered with ice crystals, and nature has gone into a dormant state. It will never be completely dark, as the Aurora Borealis is over us.
This quiet way of traveling allows you to get close to wildlife and far away from civilization in a very short time. Experience the friendship and cooperation with the dogs and learn to steer them smooth and silently through a beautiful winter wonderland.
Alaska and Siberian huskies
They are born to pull heavy loads over long distances and live in the wilderness, and they love to run! There are various breeds of draft dogs, but the most common ones are the highly versatile Alaska Husky, a breed of breed bred to pull and run fast.
Siberian husky is the more traditional and slightly more robust breed, which does not run as fast but draws much heavier loads. The thick coat makes them sleep without freezing in the snow, and you often can see them digging down if the weather gets too bad. They are bred to rest when they can, eat everything they can get hold of and give it all when they are placed in front of the sled!
The lead dogs are controlled with voice commands about where to go and the rest of the team follows. The guides know the dogs inside and out and have a very close bond with them, they are the best colleagues in the world!
Dog sledding is for everyone
Large seating seats take passengers with a guide behind, so you can sit and enjoy without having to drive yourself. Smaller sleds can be run by yourself with a friend who travels on hour-long trips, or you can participate in multi-day trips with a hiking trail full of food, tents and equipment, and help your own team reach today's goals.
