Explore at the Karelian winter by driving your own dog team! 

The Karelian landscape is like a postcard. The snow creaks under the dog´s paws as the sled runs almost silently in the middle of the snowy scenery. We welcome you to experience a dog sledding while enjoying the silence and beauty of nature in a very unique way.

Guided sled rides. Each sled couple has their own sleigh and dogs to drive through the whole adventure. After arriving at each guesthouse we invite you to help us taking care of the huskies.

• 4 sleds, 2 customers / sleigh

• Equipment: Winter Coverall, mittens, thermal boots, helmet caps and padding, wool socks.

• About halfway there we will stop for a snack, explore the animal traces in the forest and nature. There is also time for photography. The driver is changed at appropriate intervals.

     Physical condition needed: Sometimes you need to help the dogs to run uphill!  A lot of team spirit! 

  •  Please note, that because we are saving nature, we take the bed linen with us from the first guesthouse to be used in all the other guesthouses, too.
  • The bed linen bag will be carried by the luggage transfer. You will get clean towels in every guesthouse. 
  • Our track is a nature track made by snowmobile. So in case of a hard wind and snow storm we cannot guarantee the track stays open all the time. Sorry about the inconvenience! We reserve the right to changes in the program due to weather conditions. 
  • We advice you to take your own personal travel insurance.

Date: 13.-17.2.2022, also ask for a tour for private groups!
