We will start by getting the huskies ready together with you. You will learn how to harnesses the dogs and how to correctly place them in the team. Your guide will share the essential know how and teach you all you have to know, before the trip. The tour is approximately 12 – 15 km long – depending on snow, weather conditions and skills of the participants.
