Dryland mushing

Midnight sun run

This is the ultimate summer night adventure. Explore the northern forest on a wagon pulled by our happy huskies.
In the warm sun during the days the huskies is not doing much at all, mostly sleeping somewhere in the shadow. But when the sun is getting lower and the temperature drops the are waking up again. Now it´s time to go on a Midnight sun run!
On this tours we ride on 4-wheeled wagons with space for one person driving and one  person sitting on. The wagons has footsteps inside the wheels where the driver will be standing, and a handlebar that you use for steering and braking as you do on a bicycle.
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 to 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.
And as the huskies most of the wild animals also prefer the colder weather. We might see mooses, foxes, hares or capercaillies along the way. We also know that there are bears in the forest around here, and some time needs to be the first time to see one. Maybe it’s on your tour!
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 look even deeper into the forest to search for some wildlife. Back home we will give the dogs some snacks and thank them for the tour. We harness of and let them back in to kennel again before it’s time for us to say good bye and thanks for this time.
Maybe we will see you again on a sled next time.
