During winter you can join a unique half-day trip with huskies on the Skurdalsfjord and the surrounding area. The experience takes three hours, and during this trip you will ride a sled, experience well-trained huskies who take you on a tour of beautiful winter landscape at the foot of the Hardangervidda. During the trip there are several breaks where you can take pictures, get something hot to drink and a snack. You will be able to lower your shoulders, get your breath and pulse down during a hectic Christmas time, and just enjoy the ride with your friends and loved ones.
You are two people sharing one sled and husky team of 5-6 dogs. One drives the sled while the other is on, and we change halfway so everyone can try to drive the sled. First in line running an experienced guide com will assist should any challenges arise. The guide is a dog walker who knows each and every one of his dogs very well. Do not be surprised if the entire team you are given has completed the Femundløpet and Finnmarksløpet up to several times.
Our tours start at 10.00 and 13.00. For those of you who are going to drive the trip at 13.00, it is nice with a headlamp, it can get a little dark towards the end of the trip. We also have some headlamps for lending.
This tour is suitable for everyone, also for you with different challenges or limitations. Contact Geilo Husky for facilitation at [email protected]
