Longer tours

Are you an experienced driver or just want to get involved more in the tour. You probably have tried dogsledding once or twice before and now want to try the real deal. Learn how the team is set up and get a deeper introduction on how to work with your team.

On our 5 hour tour we’ll take you to the old mountain farm of Vålbrändan on the other side of the mountain. There we will prepare food on open fire before heading home. The trip goes over the mountains and through deep forrest.

On our 2,5 hour tour we make a stop on the popular mountain restaurants and make a longer stop if you want to order a lunch. This tour will also take you further up the mountain.

These tour are made for the guests who appreciate a more exclusive feeling and if you are more than 6 participants we close the tour for other guests.

Dogsled to mountain restaurant in the evening

Why not drive a dogsled to one of the mountain’s restaurants? The tour takes about 45 minutes and we equip you with headlamps. In the case of really strong moonlight, we turn off our headlamps and travel quietly in the moonlight.

Wedding run in a dogsled

We start from our usual starting point (about 100 meters from the church). The wedding couple go cozy in a sleigh. The tour takes up to 45 minutes including photography at the day’s best location. We have access to scooters run by a guide if you want the photographer to follow.

GOOD TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR DOGSLED TOUR

WERE DO WE MEET?

For our daily trips the meeting point is between the hotel Gammelgården and Högfjällshotellet. You can park your car at the Restaurant Appetito, and walk the last 50 meters to the starting point located just by the road. If you go by foot from Högfjällshotellet, it is about 750 meters East along Route 66.

Position: 61°09’26.8″N 13°07’54.8″E

WHEN SHOULD WE BE THERE?

We need time to give you proper instructions before we leave. Have also in mind that the dogs are always anxious to go. Therefore it’s really important that you be there 15 minutes before we leave.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE ARE LATE TO OUR TOUR?

For our dogsled trips we need 15 minutes to assemble, instruct and give you your teams. That means that you need to be at our starting point at least 15 minutes before departure. If you are not we regret that in such cases we can’t pay any compensation and you loose your spot.

DO WE NEED TO BOOK IN ADVANCE?

Please make your reservation at least one day ahead. During high season we are very busy so please make your reservation at least a week ahead. Our customized tours must be booked by email!

HOW SHOULD I DRESS?

Dress for a day in the slopes but wear boots with high shafts instead of ski boots. Don’t forget your goggles, they might come in handy.

Avoid cotton socks and always wear gloves and a hat of sorts. Please have a look at nordicadventure.com if you feel that you need some proper gear!

DO WE DRIVE THE TEAMS OURSELVES?

Yes, we operate our tours by letting you drive the dogsled. There is of course a guide on the first team and you will get good instructions before we leave. There is nothing to worry about. All our costumers are beginners…

IS IT FAST?

Well that is of course a matter of opinion. The speed varies from 10-25 km/hour.

HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN THE DOGS PULL?

Our dogs begin their training early autumn and can run at least 30 km a day. As a matter a fact, its really important to let these dogs exercise to stay both physically and mentally fit. They can pull approximately 260 kg/sled.

CAN ANYONE DRIVE A SLED?

Must of our customers are newbies but its is really important that when you make your reservation you let us know about any physical limitation that might restrict you from driving. If you are fit enough to go skiing, you are fit enough to mush. Otherwise, you can most likely go with the guide on his/her sled.

I AM PREGNANT, IS IT A GOOD IDEA TO GO?

It is quite bumpy and if you feel uncertain, please ask in advance to go with a guide.

CAN I PAY WITH CASH?

You pay the tour when you make your reservation, by invoice. The payment should be due no less then after 30 days or 1 day before departure.

At the stop you must bring cash for coffee, warm chocolate and treats, as the stops are often where there is no electricity.

IS THE TOUR CANCELLED IF ITS BAD WEATHER?

We always adjust our tours so they are suited for every weather condition. Snow, wind and cold are part of the environment that we work in and give the tour another dimension. But have in mind that you should dress for a cold experience. Avoid cotton socks and always wear gloves and a hat of sorts. Please have a look at nordicadventure.com if you feel that you need some proper gear!
