About the trip
From the moment you arrive until you leave, at Jotunheimen Husky Lodge you are close to the huskies and are an active participant of the whole dog sled-experience. We start by giving instructions on how to harness the dogs and manage the sled.
Before we set off, you and your partner will be handed a card with the names of “your” dogs and collect them at the kennel. The hosts at Jotunheimen Husky Lodge will assist whenever needed. This whole experience is both easy and educational – and you’ll get to know the dogs rather well.
When the dog team is ready, we rush out into the forest. Enjoy the sight of the dogs, the power of the sled, the weather and the amazingly beautiful nature. We ride through the pine forest and up to the magnificent snowy mountains. Together the group decide how far we go.
We stop along the way and enjoy a hot lunch around the campfire. Here you can ask all the questions that might have popped into your head while sledding. We also have some stories to share about the dogs, the training, the races we have partaken in Alaska and Norway, not to mention our daily life at Randsverk with our huge “family” of 30 huskies.
This trip is suitable to anyone who likes the outdoors and wants to check out dog sledding.
