Dog sledding at Langedrag

Dog sledding at Langedrag

Come see our 26 Alaskan Huskies and experience the life of a dog musher. Langedrag offers dog sledding all-year-round and gives our guests an exclusive look at a day in the life of a musher. At Langedrag we take pride in our animals and their welfare, and the dogs are no exception. During summer, we use specialized dog sled carts to take you around the Langedrag reserve and during winter we offer extended tours up in the majestic mountains.

This is a breath-taking experience where you can help prepare them for a trip where you get to be the musher. Nothing compares to interactions between humans and animals, and this surely is a memorable first-hand experience of the life as a dog musher.

Join us from early morning and help to feed, clean and ready them for the tour of your choice. If you prefer, you may also come just for the ride, sit down in our sleds on warm and comfortable reindeer skins and enjoy the glorious scenery and enthusiastic huskies doing what they love the most.

All dog sledding needs pre-ordering. We can customize tours for you and your party. Our sleds are also customizable for different handicaps and the limitations are few. Please call us at +47 32 74 25 50 or send us an email at post@langedrag.no for a no-obligation talk with one of our coordinators.

This is the ultimate experience for all outdoor enthusiasts and dog lovers. If you enjoy a good challenge or if you're a photo enthusiast, this is a must do during the winter! It must be said that this trip is the most demanding one, and offers personal challenge and fulfillment.

From there, we are one cohesive "dog sled team" and together we walk down to the kennel to prepare the dogs and equipment for an unforgettable journey in the wilderness surrounding Langedrag. This trip gives you all of what the other tours offer, plus a whole lot more in-depth experience of what it takes to be a musher. It is optional if you want to run your own sledge, or if you want to ride with one of our experienced mushers - there will be plenty of time to change your mind during the day.
