Join experienced mushers on an expedition in the arctic wilderness. You will prepare and drive your own team of Alaskan huskies for approximately 6 hours, and get to enjoy the North-Norwegian nature. No former experience with dog sledding is required, you will learn from the experienced guides as you go.
Food and all equipment are included. When returning to the camp you will be served a traditional Sami meal called “Bidos”, reindeer meat with vegetables. This will be served in a heated lavvo, a Sami tent. A full day of dog sledding will most likely give you a memory for a lifetime and a proper polar winter experience.
