Dog sledding in arctic nature - Activenorth
Come and visit our beautiful Alaskan Huskys.
The Alaskan Huskys will greet you with excited barking and friendly attitude, willingly pulling the sled into the valley of Skibotn. We will travel through the pine tree forest and into the beautiful white mountains. We will have a perfect view to the extraordinary mountain range, The Lyngen Alps.
When you come to Skibotn, you will get outdoor clothes and shoes.
Experienced dog mushers will give you instructions on how to drive a dog sled. You will drive in pairs, one driver and one passenger on the sled. You can switch during the ride.
The trip will last for 1,5 – 2 hours. We will have a quick break halfway, where you will get the opportunity to take pictures, change drivers, and cuddle the dogs. When you come back to the camp you will get a hot meal, fresh mountain spring water, and a drink of coffee or tea. (If you booked another experience with us, the guide will pick you up after the meal.)
