2 days husky tour

Are you an adventurous type? Then you should try this dog sledding experience over two days, with an overnight in a tent/lavvo (Scandinavian tipi) at the kennels.

The trip will take place in the beautiful wilderness of Kopperå traveling through incredible mountain and forest landscapes, home to lynx, bear, elk, reindeer and the occasional wolverine. You’ll learn how to ride sled and how to prepare and look after your husky team. Two persons share a dog team of 4-6 dogs and change to be a passenger or driver of the team. You will be activly involved in everything from preparing your dogteam, to feed and care for the dogs afterwards.

At night you’ll be kept warm by reindeer skins and a winter sleeping bag, hearing only the night chorus of the huskies and, if you are lucky, seeing an unforgettable view of the northern lights.

Duration: 2 days, 1 night. 10 am day 1 – 1 pm day 2.

Schedule: On request

Itinerary

Day 1:

On day 1, arrive at the kennels for 10 am. We’ll go through the equipment and clothes you need, how to prepare your dog teams and how to ride the sled. You will be responsible for your team of 4 – 6 dogs and there will be 1-2 people per sled team.   After loading the sleds and preparing the teams we set off, going up hills and through the forest until we arrive at the mountain plateau. At the top we stop for lunch, with incredible views of the surrounding mountains, before returning to the kennels. After taking care of the dogs, we’ll prepare an evening meal for ourselves, cooking over an open fire and you’ll get to sample traditional Norweigan food. Then it’s time to relax with a good book, good conversation or star gazing- and if we’re lucky some incredible views of the Northern lights.

Day 2: On waking we feed the dogs, make ourselves breakfast, prepare the dog teams, and set off for a half day tour. Back at the kennel we thank the dogs for the tour, before returning them to their houses and clearing up the equipment. Afterwards we take tea, coffee and cake around the fire sharing the stories from the tour.
