Our tours shall become an unforgettable experience for you and your dog team. For being well prepared and that you can fully enjoy the tour, please note the following information:
In principle, our tours are suitable for everyone, even without dog sledding experience. You don’t have to be a marathon runner either, but a certain level of physical fitness is required. Depending on the weather and trail conditions, it may be necessary to help the dogs on uphills or in deep snow. That means: get off the sled and push. The dogs will thank you with all the more willingness to run over the next few kilometers.
If you have physical limitations, please contact us and we will see if and which tours might be suitable for you.
The minimum age to participate in our tours is generally 16 years. On shorter tours children from the age of 14 can often drive the sled themselves on some parts of the trails; the decision about that is made by the guide. On half-day tours, children from 3 years of age can ride in the guide’s sled, from 6 years of age in a parent’s sled. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
There is no fixed upper age limit, but our experience has shown that longer tours are often too exhausting for people over 70 years of age.
Please contact us if children should take part in the tours or if you are unsure.
The weight is of course always an important criterion. In addition to the weight of the sled and your person, the dogs have to transport either a second person in the sled or a lot of food and equipment for us. In order not to overuse the dogs, we set a weight limit of 100kg for the guests. If you are above this limit, do not hesitate to ask whether we can still make a tour possible. This may be possible depending on the composition of the group. In the event that you have not informed us about your weight in advance, we must reserve the right to exclude you from the tour.
We are happy to provide you with the outermost layer of clothing. But please understand that we cannot have every imaginable size infinitely available. In principle, we have clothing in sizes S-XXL and shoes in normal sizes 36-46. Should you be outside this range or bring children with you, we will be happy to give you tips on how to find the right equipment.
In general: we plan the tours together with you and are happy to adapt them to your individual wishes and needs. It’s better to ask too much than too little, you know: there are no stupid questions 😉
