Dog sledding adventure daytime – Excl. transport

Drive your own dog sled through snowy terrain, surrounded by the Arctic mountain landscape!

Note! This option does not include bus transportation. Please arrive at Tamokhuset at 10:50 (am).

At Tamokhuset, you will be divided in two groups. In preparation for the dog sledding activity, the first group will be outfitted with the essential gear including thermal suits, boots, and gloves, ensuring comfort and warmth for the adventure ahead. After preparations and necessary instructions on how to steer the sled, they will set off on their dog sledding adventure. 

Meanwhile, the other group will go for a visit to the dog yard, enjoy a hot meal and drink, while listening to some fascinating facts about our huskies. After some relaxing time at the camp, they will get outfitted with the essential gear and receive necessary instructions as well for their upcoming dog sledding adventure! 

When the first group has arrived back from their sled ride, both groups will switch places. Now it is time for the other group to set off on their adventure while the first group gets to relax at the camp with a hot meal and drinks, visit the dog yard and learn more about our huskies. When the second group has returned from their sledding adventure, it will be time to say goodbye to the huskies and go home with memories of a lifetime.

About your dog sledding activity 

You will pair up with another guest, with two of you sharing one sled. One takes on the role of musher, guiding the team of energetic huskies through the snowy terrain, while the other enjoys the ride seated on the sled. Halfway, you will have the chance to switch roles, allowing each person to experience both the thrill of leading a team of huskies and the joy of being a passenger. 

This dog sledding ride has been carefully created as an activity accessible for most of you. Although you will need basic physical fitness walking around on snowy terrain and assisting the dogs on pushing the sled, the terrain is quite flat and open making the sledding comfortable and easy.
