Geilo Husky


Who said dogsledding is only something for the wintertime? Think again and join the Geilo Husky all year around. 

Within walking distance (or use the skibus to Vestliaheisen) from the center of Geilo, we have a pleasant camp and trails that go through the forest and over the Ustedalsfjorden.
If you want a small taste of what dog sledding is, you are welcome to drive your own dog team. This is suitable for the whole family! One person sits in the sled and the other stands behind, if desired, it can be switched halfway through. There are short tours in Geilo center from both a 5km trail and a 10km trail. When the weather improves in the spring, tours are organized on the Hardangervidda. See an overview of all husky tours and book online at

Normal skiing gear is great for dogsledding. Proper winter shoes, a good hat and gloves are important. Goggles and something to protect the face can be good to have on cold/snowy days.

In summer you can visit the kennel in Skurdalen (20 minutes by car). Here you can enter the kennel and have fun with the puppies and the other dogs. You will hear a lot of information about life as a dog handler and training plans for the dogs who compete at international level.

When autumn approaches, you can book a trip as bare-marks training. All tours must be pre-booked online at

We recommend that you wear clothes that can get dirty, if you are taking part in bare-ground training, something windproof is very advisable, and preferably a hat or gloves.

Safety and insurance
Geilo Husky give instructions to all the guests before the trip and there are always an experienced dogdriver/guide with the guests on the first sled. Dogsledding is not a high-risk activity, but like everywhere else accidents can happen. Geilo Husky has insurance for accidents where we are to blame, but it is important that all our guests also have their own travel insurance.

We believe in giving the real experience!
It is important for us to give the guest a real taste of our dog-life. We have a lot of different dogdrivers working for us, everyone are experienced and all our dogs are trained for competitions and expeditions – no one have dogs just for driving tourists. Dog welfare are of course one of the most important aspects of our business. Teaching guests about the dogs, the competitions and expeditions and how this is a lifestyle, is a big part of the experience, next to see beautiful nature, meet happy dogs and do something completely different.
