Welcome at OffTrack Experience! Say hello to our friendly Alaskan huskies, that are ready for action! *IMPORTANT* If your dates (or hours) are not available in our calendar, just drop us a message, and we we will do out best to arrange you! Espen and Delphine will welcome you at their farm, and ensure that you always feel safe & comfortable. At your arrival, we will equip you with good winter clothes so that you stay warm during the trip. You will be passenger or drive your own sled (or kart, depending on the season) while you enjoy the night landscapes with the moon shining over majestic mountains - and hopefully some Northern Lights! Before heading out, we will explain how to drive the dog-team. After a short briefing, we are ready to head out and explore the surroundings! We will be out for +/- 2h. You need to be in reasonable shape, to help and walk / push the sled on the uphills, and break / hold the dogs on the downhills, since the terrain here is slightly challenging. At the end of this exciting excursion, we head back to the farm, for some warm drinks around the bonfire in our traditional Samì tent. Family friendly experience!
