We are offering you a personal experience with our huskies. We take 2 sledges per trip, so 2 guests can be steering their own sledge at the same time. You are assisted by an experienced musher who is with you. The other guests meanwhile take pictures of the customers that are mushing and have either a walk to their departure point or are en route with the landrover.
Participants must be adults (10 years and older), there will be one adult per sledge, but one child until 10 years can be sitting on the same sledge as their parent.
Participants understand that the Northern Lights Tour is a dogsledding tour under the Northern night sky and Northern Lights appear on their own accord and nature has no guarantee. Northern Lights are a topping to the amazing experience of dogsledding.
By booking you agree that due to weather/snow conditions the tour might be rescheduled to another time during the same day or evening/night and night tours possibly to the following morning; this rescheduling is no reason for cancellation/refund. In case of very abnormal weather (warm spells and lack of snow) we reserve the right to change to dogscootering. (scooter pulled by 1 to 2 huskies) In the rare case when the tour can not take place at all due to outer circumstances we refund the full amount minus 25€ administration fee per person.
