Eager polar dogs pull the specially-made wheeled sleds, and you can enjoy the views and experience the birds and wildlife of Advent Valley up close! It’s a fantastic chance to drive a dog sled even though it isn't winter. Following an introduction to the tour you will help to harness the dogs before getting underway. The guide will drive the first sled with space for one guest, and the others will follow in small wagons for 2-3 people.
The dogs make good speed as we follow the road towards the old Northern Lights research station. Underway there is good chance that we will see reindeer, foxes and the busy nesting birds. The tour takes us along the track into Endalen, past the cableway turning station and towards the old Gruve 5 mine. Enjoy the colours of the landscape, and the refreshing Arctic air, while learning how to work your team of trusty dogs.
