Get a feeling of how mushers train their huskies in the autumn and experience the arctic forest as it changes colour. Like any other athletes, our huskies must train a lot before the racing season starts. The huskies are arctic dogs and do not enjoy running in temperatures above 15 °C. Training season starts in autumn when the temperatures fall, but before the first snow arrives. The ride takes you into the Arctic Forest as it changes into Autumn, past the Alta River and along the dirt roads where we have been training our race dogs for two generations.

Huskies are polar dogs and it is not safe for them to run when the weather is too warm. We reserve the right to reschedule or cancel tours if the temperatures make it not suitable for our dogs to run. The weather CAN become extreme in this part of the world. Holmen Husky Lodge reserves the right to change the itinerary or cancel the tour if the weather conditions appear unsafe.
