Once they arrive , you will be provided with a headlight and instructions on how to drive your own team of dogs, before you disappear into the dark, with a experienced dog driver on the first sled. After your magical trip we sit around the fireplace and provide you with some hot drinks and a little Norwegian snack. This is time to get the good stories and ask our team of experts everything you may be wondering about the dogs and the surrounding wilderness. Welcome to a different evening-activity!

Experience the best of Hardangervidda!

Winter 2014 Geilo Husky offers a unique opportunity to experience the Hardangervidda National Park at its best. Drive your own sled with dogs into the white. We sleep in an old cabin with fantastic food and lovely hosts.

We pick you up at your hotel or other place close to Geilo. You will then be part of preparing your own team of dogs, always with an experienced dogdriver by your side. When we’re ready we start the trip in to the mountains, with two guides and a lot of dogs.
In Hardangervidda you will experience the quietness, the unique nature and of course how it feels like to drive the sled behind eight excited dogs.  Our target for the day is Tuva Turisthytte, an oasis in the white desert Hardangervidda. We nurse and feed the dogs before we go inside and get our treat of the day and have a nice evening in the traditional atmosphere.

Next morning you get to try your new skills. Do you manage to prepare your team of dogs all by yourself? The way home is decided by weather and your wishes. We have a long lunch-stop on the way – with some extra quality time with the dogs.
When we’re back it’s time to say goodbye to your new best friends before we bring you back to your accommodation.

You can do this in February, March and April.
Price for adult is 5 400 NOK and for children 3900 NOK. This includes everything from we get you, until your back  ”home” again.

Geilo Husky also offer half day -, whole day – and several day trips.
