The day starts off at our kennel in Beito, where you will get acquainted with the huskies which will be part of your team for the rest of the day. You will be able to interact with these amazing sled dogs, their happy eyes, wagging tails, and fast legs.
We will start by getting the huskies ready. You will learn how to put harnesses on the dogs, learn where to correctly place them in the team, and also learn some tricks for your trip. It is not before you say the first “GO” until you get to feel the tremendous power found in a team of huskies.
An experienced guide will lead the first team and the rest will follow by instinct along the entire trail throughout the beautiful terrain.
Normally two people will share a sled, one steering and one sitting on the sledge, changing positions along the way. Small children can sit in the front together with an adult. If you don't wish to steer the huskies, just let us know in advance and you can simply relax and enjoy the ride.
This guided tour is named in honour to one of our first dogs and is about 12-14 kms long.
Our tour leaders and “mushers” are skilled and experienced nature guides, committed to providing a fun, green, and safe adventure. Ask your guide anything you ever wondered about dog sledding or sled dogs.
Prolong your adventure with a tasty wilderness meal around the flames in our Husky Dome or outdoors (Must be pre-ordered)
