From the ship, we’ll travel to the dog yards, which is a 30-minute drive away. There, you’ll meet a local guide and listen to an introduction to dog-sledding. The guide will then harness the dogs so the real fun can begin. You’ll share a specially made wheeled sled with two other guests. Eight eager huskies will pull you along from the front.
The guide will drive ahead, leading the pack with his own team of dogs. You’ll have the exciting opportunity to spend some time driving the sled by yourself, but you can also choose to simply sit back and enjoy the scenery as a passenger.
After about an hour and a half of driving, you’ll have a chance to meet the puppies back at the dog yards. The excited squeals of the husky pups are sure to melt your heart. Warm up inside with a hot drink and have a chat with your local guide before you rejoin the ship.
