Driving your own dogsled is an amazing experience where you get to feel the power and speed of these great dogs as well as enjoy beautiful winter scenery and stunning landscapes. There are always 2 adults for 1 sleigh, in which one is driving and the other sits as a passenger enjoying the ride. Drivers will be switched in the middle of the safari where you can also take some pictures with the dogs out in the pristine nature. It is also possible to ride together with 2 children on the sleigh.
