A taste of dog sledding - Trasti & Trine

Datum: Freitag 15 dez 2017 - Sonntag 15 Apr 2018 Karte anzeigen

At Trasti & Trine you are a participant. That means that you participate throughout your entire visit. We provide the instructions and you do the work. Two people ride per sled; one musher and one who sits on the sled. We stop and swap places en route.

We pick you up at one of our meeting points in Alta and drop you off afterwards. We provide warm thermal suits, mittens, hats and winter boots. Remember to bring your own warm woollen or fleece underwear.
We provide brief and precise instructions about how to drive a dog sled before we enter the dog enclosure, where many happy Alaskan huskies are waiting to meet you. Each dog has its own kennel with its name on it. You will be given a list of the names of the dogs that will be in your dog team, and then it’s time to get started. The harnesses hang in fixed places so it is just a case of finding the right dog. In this way you can get the dogs ready on your own. Of course, we are here at all times and are happy to assist you as required.
When everything is ready and dogs will be eager to set off. We open the gates and head into the forest, where it is tranquil and we can enjoy the enthusiastic dogs, the weather and the nature. One of the guides lead the way and you follow behind.
During this trip, we drive in the forest, open landscape and beside Alta River or on frozen sections.
After a while we return to the kennel. The dogs need to be returned to their respective kennels, and you help with this. Then it’s time to relax around an open fire with a hot drink and home baking to eat. Your guides on this trip have trained the dogs all autumn and winter and also competed in some sled dog races, from shorter races right up to the world’s longest sled dog race. We will be happy to share stories about the race, as well as how we train, feed and look after all our friends in the kennel.
