On this tour you will handle and drive your own dogsled. How physically demanding it will be depends very much on the snow and weather conditions during the tour. But, to go dogsledding requires that you have good balance and are reasonable fit.
In up-hills and heavy snow conditions you must help your dogs by kicking beside the sled and sometimes also run and push the sled in steep up-hills. You also need to have in mind that you will be physically active outside in the cold for many hours.
If you are unsure if you can take part don’t hesitate to send us an email and tell us about yourself and your worries.
