Husky mountain expedition tour
Join us on a mini expedition and get the real feeling then you are driving your own sled and team of huskie`s throw the winter landscape.
We stop halfway for a rest and prepare lunch over an open fire. 
When our tour continue after the break will the daylight slowly disappear and in clear weather will we experience wonderful colours in the sky before the darkness take over completely and we put on the headlamp.
To drive a team of sleddogs in the darkness is a special feeling. The sky is full of stars, but the only you can see clearly is what is in the light from your headlamp. Your place in the world getting smaller and cover only the trail ahead and your husky team which become more and more like your lifeline to get back to the comforts of civilization.

For those who want to learn more and experience longer adventures, we can offer expeditions tours, both in the more sheltered but snowy forest landscape or in the more wind-exposed landscape in the Swedish mountains.

Clothing recommendations: 

The arctic climate can be very cold. You need to be well prepared to stay warm and have a good experience during the activity.

We recommend that you wear warm under layers of wool and down. Use warm wool socks on your feet and of course use warm hat and mittens. The out layer of clothing will you get from us. 

Before we start the tour will we make sure that you are well dressed.  

Physically level: 

The physically level on the tour depend very much on the weather and snow condition. The tour is going in the Swedish mountain area were it can be parts with long uphill with soft snow up the knee, where we need to help the dogs by running and pushing the sled as mush we can. But in the next valley can it be extremely little with snow, with only glare ice what make it hard to control and steer the sled. 

Remember as well, what the time on the sled is just a part of all the activity. It is as well work around the cabins with firewood and getting water, feeding and take care of the dogs. With sleddogs is it possible to travel longer when if you are skiing. But it is mush more work before and after the driving time.

Remember as well, you will be out in the cold climate many hours each day, which as well requires more energi.

Person under 14 years old are not allowed to drive there own sled. 

Note:
