Did you know that Europe’s longest dog sledding race is held in Finnmark, Norway? Let the dogs show you why! Experience the passionate interaction between man and animal out in the nature, and the magical winter lights this far north.

Siberian Husky is a pure breed sled dog with long history in dog sledding. They love what they do and are looking forward for you to visit. The dogs well being is important for us, and you will meet a pack of happy, satisfied, and well-trained dogs.

So how will you day be like? After a proper introduction and instructions in safety when you arrive, we will move on into the dog yard. First, we say hello to the pack so you will get to know the dogs that will come out with us. You will get to harness your own dog team, by instructions and with help from us. Two and two guests go on the same sled, and we will have a stop about halfway, so you can change who is the driver, and who’s passenger if you want to. One of us will go in front, and your teams will follow. Our trip will also give you some hills, both up and down, we will be going down and old river on our way back to the kennel. No experience is necessary, all instructions will be given, just follow our lead. The trip will be adapted to snow conditions and weather.

Back in the dog yard we will find back to the dog houses and take of their harnesses. Here we can also meet the rest of the pack, cuddle our 30 dogs, big and small. Behind each dog name, there is a story to tell. We will meet around the fireplace with some snack and a hot beverage, reflect on the trip we just experienced, dog sledding, dog wellbeing, and how we live here with our pack, feed, groom and train them all year around.
