Dog Sledding in autumn! Finally the colder season is here! All the colors of the sky are returning! We get to see the stunning starry skies, magical sunsets and of course the enchanting Aurora Borealis!
We meet after dark and you get clothes and headlamps from me and together we head out into the night. On this tour we drive carts with space for 1 driver (standing) and 1 passenger (sitting). At our place the meeting between dogs and you is a large part of the tour.
When you arrive at the kennel we will start with a safety instruction about how to drive the wagons. Then we will release the dogs and put harnesses on together and prepare the teams. Some of the dogs will go crazy and start barking and screaming, and some will just calmly wait for us to get ready. But as soon we start rolling, you will only hear the sound of gravel under the wheels. We follow forest roads which makes the driving easy and we will have light enough to see what we are doing thanks to the headlamps.
Half way through the tour we will stop and you can change drivers. Then we will continue on to the river Vindelälven, that is a biosphere area chosen by UNESCO. The Vindel river is unregulated and one of our 4 national rivers in Sweden. And in this fantastic river we will let the dogs cool down and drink some water before we go to our fireplace to make some coffee and have a nice time watching the river, solve some world problems and just enjoy life.
After the fika we turn around home again, now you know how everything is working and you can relax and maybe see some auroras while driving to. Back home we will give the dogs some snacks and thank them for the tour. We harness of and let them back in to their kennels again before it’s time for us to say goodbye and thanks for this time.
Maybe we will see you again on a sled next time
