- Thrill of fast-paced dog-sledding takes some beating
People have used dog-sledding since at least the 10th century for getting around and hunting in harsh, snowy conditions. When Amundsen reached the South Pole, it was with a team of dogs. When gold was discovered in the Yukon, prospectors got there with dog sleds. There are many romantic forms of travel, from hot air ballooning to cross-country trains, but dog sledding is the most thrilling of them all. On this breathtaking gift experience in Sweden, join a team of Siberian huskies and mush through some of the most stunning winter scenery, forests, lakes and wetlands, that you’ve ever seen.
These dogs are supremely fit, and will pull you in your modern, safe and warm sled along the well-maintained trails at a fast pace. No experience is necessary, beginners are totally welcome, and after around 12-15 km you’ll be taking a break for a meal before the return journey. Typical Swedish winter fare might include reindeer or moose, followed by a warming cup of coffee, then it’s back to base in just 45 minutes or so. An exhilarating experience, made even more enjoyable for the beauty of the landscape and the charm of the dogs.
