The dogs’ eagerness and enthusiasm for working will surprise you. The musher will introduce you to the dogs. And you will learn how to prepare them and also how to build your team. The dogs are ready and barking, it’s time to go. Along the way; we will have shorts breaks where there will be plenty of opportunities to take photos. The dogs pull a cart for two people, but for an additional cost you may drive your team of dogs alone for the whole time. If you do not want to drive the team yourself, you can ride with a musher. If the weather is good we take a hot drink or we gather around the fire in the hut when we get back. Warm overalls and outdoor clothes can be borrowed from us if needed.
