If you have a deep interest in dogsledding but don't have several days for an expedition, sign up for a full-day dogsledding experience with us. You'll get extra time to experience this exciting sport without using your entire holiday. We will collect you from Alta city center and supply warm clothing to match the winter weather if needed, and then you will be taken to meet your guides and dog team. If you like, you can lend a hand in preparing the dogs and equipment for the journey, and then we will travel to the starting point. The ride itself will run a course that is around 30-35 km, which will give you plenty of time to enjoy the frozen scenery, the peaceful sounds of the dogs running in the snow, and the steady power of your team. We will stop for lunch around a bonfire along the way.
This tour operates by request, not on specific days. Contact us for availability.
This tour is ideal to combine with an overnight package as well - see AI12: Dogsledding and Northern Night. The overnight package (minus the short dogsled ride, of course, since you have already been out) in AI12 can be added for 1740,- per person (single supplement 300,-).
