Join us on our incredible dog sledding raids across the frozen tundra of Varangerhalvøya National Park. With sledding excursions that last either 2, 3, 5 or 7 days, you will discover this great frozen Norwegian wonderland, alongside David, his team of English and French-speaking experts, who will provide you with interesting insights and informations about the jaw-dropping surrounding eco-system. All offers will involve heading out for approximately 30 km per day. Depending on the conditions, you should arrive at different chalets chosen by David in the national park in around 2-4 hours. Here you will then set-up camp and prepare yourself for the evening. You will then resume your dog-sledding adventure the following day and repeat a similar process but with a different path and a different destination.
The tour can be taken by kids as young as 8, who will even be able to take the reins for themselves under your guidance and supervision. Both adults and children will be provided an introductory session to familiarise themselves with the dogs and how to handle them during the activity.
- Meeting point and time:
- The meeting point is in the town of Varangerbotn where David will come and collect you for your adventures. The meeting time will be agreed between you and David after you have booked your dogsledding trip.
Exact address: Bus Stop in Burnes, Varangerbotn, 9840 Nesseby, Norway.
We will pick you up at 9:30 from your initial accommodation destination and drive you to our kennel for a presentation of the 30 dogs and the team. Here you will try on suits, boots, and mittens that you can borrow. Then come explanations on how to put the harnesses on the dogs and put them in the hitch, how to tie them, how to drive the sleds, how to follow the instructions during the raid and for each bivouac. These instructions are important because you will repeat these actions throughout the raid. Then, once the sledges are loaded, we will head to a chalet in the Taiga, located at a distance of 25-30 km. Arrived at the first camp, we will attach the dogs for the night, install our quarters and heat water to prepare the dog food and evening meals.
We wake up at 7.30am-8am the next morning. After eating breakfast and having fed the dogs, we pack our stuff, clean the chalet and prepare the sleds and dogs. The departure time will be 9:30 where we will head to the next chalet, around 30 km away.
