Dogsledding has ancient traditions in the polar regions. The relationship between dog, human and sled has been very important to human history, as it has made it possible to inhabit these cold and harsh areas of the north. The sled dogs, the huskies, are today used in sled dog racing. Our dogsledding experience will teach you how to drive the sled and what it takes to be a musher. You will work close to the huskies and experience the intimate relationship between the sled dog and the musher. 

In this dogsledding experience you will be two persons on one sled: one sitting on the sled while the other acts as a musher, controlling the dogs and the sled. Our tracks are easy to navigate. You have to be in a normal condition to participate. 

The dogsleddig experience includes:
