Here in Lapland we are a hardy bunch, and our tours take place in all weathers – so be ready! It could be windy, icy or snowy but that won’t stop us having an incredible experience together.

Our 5 days tours require a medium to high level of fitness. We cross varied terrain and you must be fit enough to help your team and push your sled sometimes. For our 9 day expeditions a high level of fitness is required.

During the whole tour we all help out with taking care of the dogs, feeding them, preparing a straw bed for them. As a team we also help with fetching water, firewood, cooking and washing the dishes.

Minimum age for our tours is 18 years.

There is also a possibility for a family to book a private tour, where it might be possible to for children to drive a team at a younger age.
