Have you ever thought about leading your own team of dogs on a sled ride? This excursion offers you a great opportunity to do exactly that! The tour lasts for about 45 minutes, running through both treelined trails and open terrain. Furthermore, Breivikeidet offers a stunning view overlooking the fjord and the majestic Lyng Alps, with peaks reaching up to 1,400 metres in the sky.


Mushing a dog sled is not particularly difficult, as the huskies love to run, and they automatically follow the team in front of them. However, you will receive a quick orientation prior to your tour, so you don’t have doubts on how to handle the dog sled.  


Each guide leads a group of three or four guest teams, each consisting of two people and one sled. Thus, solo travellers may have to share a sled with another guest or one of the guides. You and your teammate switch position halfway through, so you both get to try your hand at being a dog musher.


During the tour, the guide will tell you the story about the Alaska Huskies and their daily life. Finally, you will be served a taste of local food and a hot drink.
