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 we let the dogs catch their breath and you will also have a chance to pet the dogs and warm up, as it can be quite cold in the Arctic! When we are back in the dogyard you can help the guide unharnessing the dogs and walking them back to their homes.
In December and January, the afternoon tours will end in darkness, so the only tour we do have that you will experience both the daylight and total darkness. Total darkness in December and January also means a good chance to see the Northern Lights.
Minimum age: 5
