Ivar and the huskys are preparing for the winter long-distance races with dryland tours in the beautiful Skurdalen, and we invite you to participaton the tour and training of the dogs. Here you get to join in the preparation of the dogs, a instruction of how to drive a cart and the tour itself of course. Ivar is one of Norway's most experienced sleddogdrivers (mushers), so here you can ask everything you have to wonder about dog sledding and dogs. Maybe you recognize some of the dogs from Femundløpet or Finnmarksløpet's TV broadcasts?
The dogs are in training during that period, so the tours we hold are limited, with few participants and we have plenty of time to enjoy the tour. For those who like cycling, we also have a scooter of the type Kickbike FatMax (same size as a Fatbike). Then you have 1-2 huskies pulling the scooter, but you stand on the scooter and kick when needed. Cycling experience is recommended.
Do you have your own husky or hound? With us, your own dog can be tried in large dogsledteam. Contact [email protected] for more info and appointment.
We can not complete the tour if it is warmer than 12 degrees due to the dogs' welfare. If you book a tour in September, be aware that the trip may be postponed or canceled, while October is a safer month for completing the tour. We drive even if it is raining and / or sleet. Please check the weatherpage www.yr.no before the tour and dress according to the weather and your own preferences. If we as the organizer have to cancel the tour, you will be refunded the amount. If you as a guest cancel, the booking conditions for Geilo Booking apply. You can find this information under Booking Terms on geilo.com's website or contact Geilo Booking directly
