When the guide has completed the instruction, the trip goes to the dog yard where you and your partner will get the team ready. We show how to harness and put the dogs in the team. The trip is completed with two people per sledge, along the way there will be time to change drivers and take photos. If the group number is odd, one of our guides will follow you.
Our minibus will bring you to the restaurant.
The choice is between one of our six Lavvos or our one Dome. The lavvos are not equipped with bathroom / shower / toilet, but our Dome is. Rooms without toilets have the nearest toilet 10-20m from the room, and shower facilities are 40-50m from the room.
With the guides you get to help prepare the dogs for transport up to the mountain.
When we have reached the foot of the mountain it is time to get the teams ready for travel. The setup is two persons per sled where it will be possible to change driver several times.
The mountain cabin was established in 1843 and rebuilt after the war in 1944 and is the first to be established in Finnmark. There are bathrooms and showers in the accommodation building.
