Keen to take the whole family on a dog sledding adventure? That’s no problem! We run dog sledding trips to Alta’s best tobogganing hill. It’s fun for young and old alike! We serve lunch around an open fire. We offer trips
every day at 11 am

When children join our trips, it’s normally full speed action all the time. They are keen to investigate and test everything, preferably everything at the same time. We have put together a special trip for young and old who want to explore the winter forest together.

After a brief and precise introduction about how to operate the sled, we go into the dog yard, where you will be greeted by many happy Alaskan huskies. They are used to being visited by guests of all ages, and have been handled ever since they were young puppies. Every dog has its own kennel with its name on it. You will be given a card with the name of the dogs that are going on the trip. Then it’s time to get started. The harness is hanging in its rightful place and it’s time to find the right dogs. In this way, you are involved in preparing the dog team. We use a big sled together. We also have special children’s sleds, which older children can drive if they prefer.

When everything is ready, the dogs will be eager to set off. We open the gate and set off into the forest. We can enjoy the peace and tranquillity, the enthusiastic dogs and the majestic nature.
After around half an hour’s dog sledding, we will arrive at one of Alta’s best tobogganing slopes. We tie up the dogs and get ready for some action on the slope. This is great fun for young and old alike!

Snow and fresh air makes you hungry, so we serve a delicious homemade lunch around an open fire. After lunch, we drive the dog teams back to the dog yard. We help each other to remove the harnesses and will see who remembers which dog lives in which kennel!
We pick you up from one of our collection points in Alta and drop you back there after the trip. You will receive warm winter clothing on arrival. We have snowmobile suits, mittens, hats and winter boots. We recommend you wear warm woollen or fleece underwear.

Duration: 3 hours.

Pickup time at your location is the same time as the starting time for your activity.
