Drive your own dog team for 10 km/40-50 min on Ustedalsfjorden.
If you want to try dog sledding and want some extra time on the back of the sled, we have a slightly longer trip on the Ustedalsfjorden, in the middle of the National Park village of Geilo.
With Geilo Husky you get to drive your own sled with some of Norway's fittest Alaskan Huskies. Two people share a sled and take turns driving and sitting in it.
If you choose "Dog driving under the stars", you will receive instructions from experienced dog drivers before you can try driving completely by yourself for 40-50 minutes (approx. 10 km).
This tour is suitable for everyone, including those with various challenges or limitations. Contact Geilo Husky for arrangements at [email protected]
