Want a slightly greater challenge?
If you choose 2 hours of dog sledding you will try your hand at more difficult dog sledding, and experience the nature and atmosphere around Langedrag.
There is a rule for all who love dog sledding, “The longer, the better”. If you have ever driven a dog sled before, or if you feel like dog sledding is really something you will love, then we recommend a longer ride.
With the 2 hour ride you will join a longer trip into the mountains, where you will challenge yourself slightly more as a dog sledder in some steeper hills and higher altitudes than our shorter rides. Here you will get the opportunity to see how our dogs work together to get you onto the mountain, and you must watch closely and help when it is needed. If you choose this trip you can also assist in taking the harnesses on and off the dogs – no matter which time you choose. The ride itself will last for about 1.5 hours. This time will be used for dog sledding, there are no stops underway except to switch driver/passenger in the sled, and if there are any questions during the ride.
Because the dogs get great pleasure out of variation, we have this trip every Monday and Thursday.
“There's a rule for dog sledders: The longer, the better!"
Dog sledding for 2 hours is a great fit for most who are 4 years and older. It is important that the person driving the sled can move in the snow and it is also important with good winter clothes. Most people can have a nice time in the sled if they are well clothed. This is a nice way to get out into nature if you have a handicap or other difficulties to move when it is snowy outside.
Price: 1500 kr for adults og 1000 kr for children 4 years and up. IMPORTANT! Please write the children’s age into the comment field.
Who: For whoever desires a greater challenge! To drive your own sled you must be a minimum of 12 years. Children from 4 years and up can sit in the sled on the reindeer skin. IMPORTANT! No children can ride without an adult.
When: The rides are every single Monday and Thursday as long as there is snow. We will happily have dog sledding another day – contact us if you have other wishes (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Time: The experience takes 2 hours overall.
Where to meet: Meet next to our dog kennel, which is down by the parking lot, 5-10 minutes before the time you have booked.
Includes: Dog care, dog sledding for 1.5 hours, dog petting, experienced dog sledders as instructors and sled which you have alone (2 per sled).
Important to remember: Be well clothed, even if you are on a reindeer skin it can be quite cold. Important to have gloves/mittens no matter the temperature.
What you learn: Become familiar with dog sledding, how the dogs cooperate when it gets hard, og how to control the sled in uneven terrain. See how the dog sledder controls the dogs with commands. You must learn to control the sled og brake at the correct time. You also learn how to take care of the dogs before and after.
Do you want a shorter or longer trip? We have different lengths to our trips, and offer 15 minute trips if you just want a little taste, and even longer trips deeper into the mountains. Check out other dog sledding activities at our online booking or send us an email at email@example.com
