About this tour
On this tour we go deeper into the mushing world. You get to learn more, drive more, talk more and eat more than on the musher’s joy. As always we start with a lesson in handling the sled and the dogs. We let our dogs loose at the starting point so they can warm up a bit. We put harnesses on and attach them to our sleds. At our place the meeting between the dogs and you is a large part of the experience. You get to know your teammates before the tour and get a feeling of how to be able to work together.
This is where you come in. You are the driver of the team! You are handling the sled, we need you to do your part in using the brakes and balance the sled for this to be as good as it can get.
But is that so hard? I would say, No. The trail is well-prepared and all our focus is on giving you a great day outside together with us. The dogs are professionals as am I, but make no mistake. We need you to!
The start is always a bit stressful but we take it slow and easy so that everyone gets going. We make a quick stop after a little while to check the teams, adjust clothing and take a quick photo. After this break, the plan is to continue on our journey.
This is when you realise that you are running an Alaskan Husky team! Born to run is such an understatement that you need to experience it to comprehend. My plan is to let the dogs run as they should and can. For us that means that we can relax. Enjoy the view, make a movie or photograph, or just stand there on the runners and admire the dogs when they are doing exactly what they where born to do!
Alaskan Huskies is the ultimate longdistance sleddog! No one can compare, but an ultramarathon runner is the human resemblance. Our friends trot on in moderate 12-17km/h. Naturally they are rather excited in the start, and there we need to control them a bit with our brakes, (quite alot sometimes…) but after a short while we enter our own speed and now the dogs can keep on for hours without getting tired.
When we stop for lunch we give the dogs a well deserved snack before we get into our own chores. Reindeer or moose stew cooked over open fire. This is where we have time to solve the problems of the world, enjoy our lunch and of course, drink a cup of coffee. There should also be time to make a snow angel and relax on the reindeer skin.
After lunch we turn around and head home.
Back home the snack bag awaits for the dogs and they get a well deserved treat after the run! We get the harnesses off and let them back into their kennels! After that it is time to change clothes again and head out for new adventures!!
What should I think of?
We are out for about 6-7 hours, depending on weather and trail conditions. On this tour, it’s good to bring a bag with extra socks, jacket, scarf and warmer gloves.
Winter boots and warm jacket and pants to keep you warm, we also have large mittens for you.
Ski googles are also available if it is snowing a lot on our tour.
Transfer to and from the kennel.
Hats we believe are personal so please bring your own.
Warm clothes suitable for the weather to have underneath the clothes we lend you. The Jacket and pants are a great protection from the elements but you need to dress for the weather that is on your day. Warm, cold, sunny or snowy.
