KI29A Daytrip by dog sledge in the Norwegian-Russian borderland with overnight stay
Available 06.12 – 24.04
Exclusive tour in the beautiful Pasvik valley, where you drive your own sledge. Tour with max 8 guests so an early booking is highly recommended.
Pick up at hotel or Hurtigruten pier/hotel. We drive by car from Kirkenes to our base camp in Pasvik, approximately 1 hour. Pasvikdalen is one of the last wilderness areas in Europe. Tour by dog sledges along the Norwegian- Russian border and into the Siberian forest. You drive your own dog sledge (2 persons per sledge). Driving distance is 20-25 km (depends on weather and snow conditions). We serve coffee/tea and lunch outdoors around the open fire or in our Sami lavvu.
After the tour check inn in our cosy guesthouse at the Pasvik river. Dinner and Breakfast included. On day 2 transfer back to Kirkenes with arrival time 10.00.
Normal physical health is required, as our guests are involved in attaching/removing the harnesses and driving the dog sledges by themselves.
Guests with a really bad back or with problems walking is not recommended to join in on our tours since they are done not only on flat terrain, bumps on the track and balance is needed. You will be two persons per sled, one sitting in and one running the sled. We do not have one guide per sled – so if you for some reason do not want to run the sled at all, we need to know when the tour is booked
The menu is set on our tours and if you have special food preferences we need to know that already when
