Be a musher for the day!

Experience the most beautiful adventure in the fairytale Arctic wilderness and be a musher on a sled pulled by adorable Alaskan huskies.

You will feel the strength of your powerful team, as you ride through the winter wonderland of frozen lakes, forests and majestic mountains. On route, look out for fox, owl, snow grouse, eagle, reindeer and moose.

Parts of our trails are over steep and undulating terrain and therefor only suitable for fit adventure seekers. Two participants share a sled, alternating between mushing the sled and being a passenger.

We provide Arctic proof boots and winter clothing. However, we recommend for you to wear a good quality base layer with a woollen jumper or fleece.

You will receive full instructions on how to mush your team and control your sled, preparing you fully for this unique adventure. The dog sled ride will take about 3 hours*, weather dependent. On your return, you will have the opportunity to unharness your team before saying good bye to your faithful dogs. A warm camp fire will be waiting for you, around which you can sit and exchange your stories of the trip whilst eating your packed lunch along with hot beverages and biscuits.

This tour is arranged every Wednesday and Saturday through the winter season. However, it can be arranged on request outside these days. This tour is suitable for anyone with a good fitness. We do not recommend to join the activity if you suffer from back pain, epilepsy or heart problems or in the later stages of pregnancy.

*Bare in mind that nature is unpredictable and exactly when the snows arrive will always vary a little from year to year. Dog sledding needs good quality snow, so the actual sled time can be shorter in November and December.

This activity is also suitable for groups. Contact us for more information!
