We are Merete and Espen and have been working with dog sledding for several years. Since it has long been a dream to be able to do dog sledding full time, we finally opened our own business at the end of April 2019. Today we have a total of 16 dogs on the farm and do tourist driving. In the summer we ride carts while using sled in winter.
Our guests can choose from the following tours:
5 km round trip
The tour lasts about 60 minutes and begins with the introduction on how to use the sled and how to work with the dogs. There are 2 people per sled that switch driving. One steer, and one is passenger, we switch half way on the way so everyone gets to drive the dog sled.
Adults NOK 700, - per person
Children (0 to 12 years) NOK 450, - per person.
Minimum 2 registered
For those who want to get the real feeling of dog-sled riding, we offer longer trips up to 20 km. Here we go even deeper into the mountains with 5-7 dogs per sled, and you really get time to learn how to tackle the sled and the dogs. The tour is not recommended for younger children, as they can get a little cold after a while. The 20 km tour takes about 3 hours including a small stop with lavvo for something hot to drink.
Price including warm shoes and hot drinks
Adults NOK 1300, - per pers
Children (0-12 years) NOK 700, - per pers
Minimum 2 registered
Participants will be allowed to harness the dogs and run their own dog team with 5-6 dogs. We teach you how to put the harness on the dogs and how to control the sled. There are 2 people per sled that switch driving. One is steer, and one is passenger, so we change several times along the way. Our guide goes first with his dog team and your dogs will follow naturally. On this trip you will experience both high mountain terrain and low forest terrain.
The tour includes a stop halfway through the trip in the lavvo or inside the mountain if the weather permits. Here guests can enjoy a hot lunch and hot drinks. You should be in normal physical condition to participate in this tour.
