Become a true sled dog driver
Be part of our husky family and come close to the dogs. Learn how to drive the sled and take care of the dogs. Drive your own dog sled and experience the feeling of being a Musher, establishing a bond and trust between you and the dogs. See the wonderful nature that Dalarna has to offer when we go out together with the dogs on a two-day adventure over frozen lakes through deep forests and open marshes, down steep slopes and over high peaks. We will spend the night in a rustic summer cottage, and explore the landscape by dog sledding during the days.
The cottage is from 1865 and is heated with wood in the fireplace and stove. There is no electricity or running water. It has an outdoor terrace that is available to take in the views of the Swedish landscape.
We will do all the chores together, such as feeding, harnessing and connecting the dogs to the sled. We get water collect firewood and cook our food with fresh, organic produce grown on our own farm.
First come to our farm
There we will have a review of how to drive the sled. We will also talk a little about how to handle and work with the dogs, such as how to harness the dogs and group them in couples and how to help them when needed. Then you will meet the dogs and the team that you will be able to take care of and drive in the next few days. We pack the sleds with the equipment that will be needing on the journey.
The adventure begins when we travel over a frozen lake at 141 meters above sea level. Then we hike on one of many climbs through forest and marshland. We will cross Falun's highest peak at 506 meters above sea level. Once there, we will access a lookout tower with a fantastic view of the landscape that we will travel through, There is also a fireplace where we have a chance to light a fire and take a lunch break. Then we will rush down the mountain towards a landscape consisting of many intertwined bog systems with dense forests that separate them. In the midst of all this primeval forest above a marsh and near a lake, we will find the old rustic cottage where we will spend the night. We take care of the dogs first, then ourselves with the evening's boarding for the night. And if there is any energy left, there is the opportunity to try snowshoeing around the cabin.
The following morning we begin by feeding the dogs breakfast after they slept outside the cottage. After we ourselves have finished eaten breakfast and completed our morning routines, then we get ready to leave for our journey back. We pack our sleds and go home to the farm. We will take a different road than the one we traveled on the previous day. Once back at the farm, in the yard you get the chance to say goodbye to your new four-legged friends. We can light a fire in the fireplace and have some coffee next to the dog farm before you go home.
