Drive your own sled in Sweden!
Our Rookie Run is the perfect short tour for beginners. As a guest on this tour, you will be in charge of a team of four to six dogs.
This tour starts 10.00 but you need to check in 09.30
We begin with giving you short instructions on how to handle the sled and communicate with your dog team before we let the dogs out so you can meet them.
Now we are ready to get started! You will be a team of two per sled so you take turns to drive the team.
The tour will take you through the deep forest, over wetlands and sometimes even over frozen rivers and lakes.
You will get to know the beauty of this country and feel the strength of our hard-working dogs.
After the tour, you are very welcome to give us a hand with letting the dogs back in their kennels.
To be able to drive the sled you need to speak/understand the English language, if not we offer a place in a sled. This is very important for everybody’s safety. This has to be known to us when you make the booking (so we can plan the tour and have enough guides). If we notice that the guest doesn’t understand we will offer a place in a sled the whole tour.
No food or swedish fika is included in this tour. If you want to eat something we can recommend A taste of mushing instead. This tour includes a delicious dinner cooked over an open fire.
