A daring adventure for true arctic explorers!
Enjoy two days of dog sledding with your own team of Alaskan huskies and an overnight stay in the wilderness.
Before the expedition starts you get a full introduction to dog sledding and how to look after your team. Then you will prepare your own sled and we head out towards the mountains! After 5-8 hours of sledding (depending on the snow and weather conditions) we pick a campsite for the night. The dogs always come first, so we will take care of them before we set up our own tents for the night. With a little luck you will get to see the northern lights as few others have; dancing across a sky that is unpolluted by the light smog of civilization.
After breakfast the next day you will go further up the mountains to enjoy the beauty of the arctic wilderness. Possible wildlife sightings along the trail include fox, eagles, arctic and snowshoe hares, moose and reindeers.
In the early evening, we return to our center, where a steaming hot bowl of Bidos, Sami reindeer stew and a piece of chocolate cake will be served around an open fire in our cozy Gamme-hut.
During the 2-day expedition, you will learn about dog sledding, the Alaskan Husky breed and develop a very close and personal bond with “your” husky team. In short, you will experience first-hand the life of a true Arctic musher! No former experience is needed.
IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE:
We impose an age restriction of 16 years for this tour since the drivers in this tour are most likely very inexperienced and therefore prone to errors.
The activity also demands a good level of fitness, including, but not limited to, the ability to jog uphill through snow, a good balance (also on one foot) and a tight grip.
