Tour conditions: All activities are easy to moderate. In wilderness cabin we sleep in mixed room with both gentlemen’s and women’s. The wilderness cabins are heated with wood/gas and have no electricity or running water. If we sleep in a canvas tent we have a wood stove and sleep on reindeer skins in warm sleeping bags everyone in the same tent. Dry toilets are available at the cabins but at the telt camp we dig holes in the snow.
No former dog sled experience is required but you must like animals and feel compassion for them.
How physically demanding will it be?
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 each day. Our tours are not made up touristic adventures but real experiences where everybody work as a team and helps with everything from taking care of the dogs, cooking, loading the sleds, fetching water etc.
