Are you interested in the musher’s way of life and want to experience first-hand what it’s like to take care of huskies and drive your own sled ? Then this musher’s experience package is perfect for you !
You will help us with our daily musher’s chores while we learn you the dogsledding basics, tell you all about the techniques and equipment used for sledding. You will explore the arctic environment from a new and breath taking perspective !
Of course it is not all about work, it is more about showing you the joy of being around and working with huskies. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to spend time with the dogs, have a better idea of their behaviour and have a proper multiple day arctic adventure.
We welcome you to our home and get to know each other so we have a better idea which dogs make a good team for you. We take it easy the first day: we eat and drink something together and we will show you the kennel, you will have plenty of time to get the know our huskies.
After breakfast our daily ritual begins ! We start feeding the dogs, check our equipment and we will teach you the dogsledding basics, we explain you everything you need to know and answer all of your questions you might have.
We take a short break over lunch where we make a final decision on what dogs will be part of your team. We will then start all the necessary preparations together after which it’s time to put our teachings into practice ! We will go on a short tour for your first proper sledding experience.
When we return we must take further care of the dogs and make sure they are well, we clean and store our equipment after which we prepare ourselves for a cosy evening. We finish the day with a nice meal, have a good laugh and share some stories.
After our morning feeding and sled preparation rituals we will this time go for a longer sled tour. When we return you will have more time to spend with the dogs, feel free to take pictures to preserve this experience that will last a lifetime.
