Thanking our dogs for a great experience an amazing scenery through the forest
I loved driving our own dogsled and Beryl truly enjoyed the experience as a passenger. We had a team of 5 huskies it was a wonderful and magical time . The huskies we were using were highly trained. We took a circular route through the forest, we were part of a small group( consisting of 5 sleds) and we had a couple of guides with us that were on hand to explain what to do on some of the more challenging parts of the itinerary. Such as, a couple steep down hills the speed even using the break pad was very scary. Driving the sled is quite a physical task you need a fair level of fitness as you need to get off the sled and help the dogs push up steep hills. Also, because of the fresh snow whilst riding along you need to use one of your feet to keep clearing the snow away which gathers in the brake pad and slows the sleigh down.
