Dog Sledding

RUN YOUR OWN DOG TEAM AT GEILO

Experience nature with man's best friend! In the heart of Geilo, National Park Village, you can experience driving your own team with some of Norway's most trained Alasikan huskies. Dog sledding is very popular, so if you want to participate, we recommend that you book early. Geilo Husky offers various trips, from 5 km to day trips. Below you can read more about the different tours you can take part in. Dog sledding is a perfect family activity and can also be adapted for the disabled. Geilo Husky has extensive experience in adapting so that everyone gets the opportunity to get out into nature, and not least get lots of attention from their furry friends. Everyone is welcome here!

Practical Tips and Advice

FOR DOG SLEDDING

 

Clothing

Normal winter clothing is great for dog sledding. Sturdy winter shoes, preferably with a firm sole (not Moon Boots), warm hat and gloves/mittens. If it snows, we recommend ski goggles/sunglasses to protect the eyes. 

Security and Insurance

Geilo Husky gives instructions to all guests before the trip, and there is always an experienced dogsledder/guide with guests on the first sled. Dogsledding is not a high-risk activity, but if one is unlucky, then an accident can also occur as in all other activities. Geilo Husky has insurance for accidents, but it is strongly recommended that all guests also have their own travel insurance.

Quality is Important 

The authentic experience is what Geilo Husky wants to convey. All the dogsledders who work for Geilo Husky are experienced and all the dogs are trained for competitions and expeditions - no one has dogs just to drive tourists. Dog welfare and that the dogs are happy is always the highest priority. Knowledge and dissemination of proper dog care, competitions, expeditions and how this is a lifestyle, is a big part of the experience, together with beautiful nature and happy dogs!
