Play an active role on the trip and learn all about huskies and dogsledding. You'll start in our dog yard with a list of names. With our help as needed, you will find your dogs, assemble your team and prepare your sled for the journey. Then you're off for a day of fun and adventure, driving your sled along the forest trail, accompanied by guides on their own sleds.
You'll travel through varying terrain - forest and valley, hills and high plains - giving you lots to see and different driving experiences. We'll stop for lunch midway through the tour along the trail. By the time you return, you'll have a real feel for the rhythm and excitement of mushing dogs in the arctic!
The tour includes transport to and from Alta city center, warm clothing as needed, instructions beforehand, the dogsled tour, and homemade lunch and something warm to drink.
You will be in close contact with a large number of dogs in the dog yard and along the trail. They are very friendly and love attention, but be ready for some excited noise and muddy paws now and then. Handling a dogsled for several hours is a strenuous physical activity, and you should have good enough physical condition that you can stand on one leg and control the sled for an extended period. ALL participants, even passengers, must have sufficient insurance to cover this type of activity, and all participants will be required to sign an insurance waiver before being allowed to ride or drive a dogsled.
