Say hello to a bunch of barking huskies that are ready for action (but still very friendly). You drive the dog sled by yourself into the white landscapes, through the beautiful Vass Valley - an uninhabited forest landscape surrounded by mountains.
You will get instructions on how to drive a dog sledding team. You will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each sled, with opportunity to switch places half way. The trails you follow have a total distance of approximately 15 km. At the end of your trail you will return to Camp Tamok. There you will be served a hot meal in a lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent).
