This trip is perfect as a first trip to get a feel for what a wonderful experience dog sledding is, or if you have small children with you who love dogs and dog sledding.
On all trips, if the handler see it as safe, you choose for yourself whether you want to drive or sit on the sled. There is a driver and 1-3 (if small children) passengers in the sled per team. The handler drives the first team and guides you safely through the trail. Please note that children cannot drive the dogsled alone. There must be at least 1 adult per 1-2 children.
The tour starts from the dog farm and takes you between the moose farms in Langedrag. Here you will most likely meet some curious moose that come along on the inside of the fence.
