Andreas and Noah took great care of us and there was lots of time for dog petting and photos. The sledding itself is actually quite physical! You are a part of the dog team and expected to actively participate! Had a wonderful time, would absolutely recommend. Thanks!

Never did dog sledding before.....Andreas and Noe' were very informative about what to expect and how to treat the (special) dogs. It was an exciting experience. Was expecting an "open" field run, but was on a 2 mile strip of "street" (maybe because of the amount of snow). Time actually on the sled was about 15 minutes. Expensive for the... More

Great to hear you enjoyed the morning with us. You had perfect and fast slope conditions with great panoramic view over the fjord. You all did really well steering the team.

Wow, what an amazing experience! Andreas and Noé were great; friendly, funny, professional and passionate. Their knowledge of the dogs and how their personalities and strengths add to the team, is something to admire. The dogs were of course fantastic; friendly and full of energy, just wanting to run and be active. I would highly recommend this tour!

What an amazing experience! I was a bit nervous beforehand, but the guys took time to really talk us through what to do. Andreas skied ahead the whole way, keeping an eye on me and giving me tips.

We are always "grateful" when our guests are a little nervous beforehand. It means that you are awake and present - and that is needed to make the tour a success. And as you describe - we are always there to give you a hand when needed. No worries - only pleasure in the presence of our enthusiastic dogs. More

From the beginning to the end, the team was professional, efficient, friendly and fun. Andreas went to great lengths to ensure each rider remained safe and enjoyed themselves.
