for the extreme and experienced only
This tour is designed to give you a feel for long distance sleddog racing. In the same style as our very successful “winter experience tour” you will be using the latest up to date camping equipment and racing sleds from the Sawtooth mountain company.
BUT UNLIKE our “winter experience tour” this tour is a little tougher and the pressure is on a little more. Although you will be with one of our experienced guides, you will be expected to care for your team and yourself fully.
You will drive teams of 8 dogs late into the night on difficult trails to complete between 60 and 75km every day. On this trip there is no ice-fishing or mountain walk.
TO QUALIFY for this tour you NEED to have COMPLETED one of our tours before.
Arrive at Östersund, taxi transfer to Yxskaftkälen. Meet dogs and instructors. Basic instruction in handling of dogs and equipment.
Training and refreshing day (today there is still time for questions and help, from day 3 you have to do it yourself).
Pack sleds prepare dogs and leave to the mountains. We will cover between 60 and 75 km per day. Sleeping in tents and preparing food on petrol cookers.
After breakfast, say goodbye to your dogs, return to Östersund.
