Imagine you are being pulled by dogs. You have no worries, only to feel the thrill of the speed, the silence and the beautiful Arctic landscapes.
The guide will drive the sled, so you will feel free and enjoy the experience. While on the dogsled you can take pictures and videos. There will be a small break, during the tour, where you can take even more pictures with the dogs and the scenery. You will also have a change to pet the dogs and warm up, as it can be quite cold in the Arctic! When we are back in the dog yard you can help the guide with feeding the dogs, unharnessing them and walking them back to their homes.
In December and January, the afternoon tours will be in the dark*. Just you, the dogs and the guide’s headlight, an experience like no other.
*chance to see the northern lights.
This tours will be opened up on the 15th the month before.
A dogsled tour where you will be driving your own sled in the wilderness that surrounds Abisko. One person, one sled, it’s you and the dogs. But don’t worry, there is always two guides leading the tour. The tour will start with an introduction of how to go dogsledding and then you will be ready to go! You will take in the silence and nature around Abisko during the tour.
It is an active activity. You will work as a team with the dogs, helping them in the up hills, breaking in the downhills and keeping balance. The guides will be there to help you out during the tour. They will also take pictures of you which you can collect after the tour. After the tour you will have time to thank the dogs and have the chance to take pictures with them.
Compared to the regular ”Winterday dogsledtour” the ”+” tour will take you twice as long, twice as high, and give you twice the fun! You will climb higher which will result in a better view, the down-hills get longer and bigger. All in all more fun!
You might think that this tour will be too hard, but it’s actually the opposite, yes you will be staying a longer time on the sled but this will also give you more experience and you can relax a lot more. There will also be a short break for refreshments.
