If you're up for the challenge of a longer-than-usual sled tour, our weekend package is the perfect way to dive a little deeper into the sport and lifestyle of dogsledding.
The weekend tour begins with a get-acquainted session on Friday afternoon, as you meet and introduce yourself to the dogs, learn about the gir, and take a 15 km dogsled ride to practice. On Friday night, you'll be our guest at the farm and enjoy dinner, comfortable accommodations and some extra touches of luxury like a sauna and outdoor jacuzzi. On Saturday and Sunday, you'll be out on the trail, gliding through the wilderness, marveling at the untamed arctic scenery as your dog team pulls you steadily along. You'll overnight on Saturday at a mountain lodge near the halfway point, and on Sunday you'll be back at our farm in time for dinner, and one more overnight stay before you leave on Monday.
