Dog-sledging is just one of Norway's exhilarating outdoor pursuits: you'll travel a long distance very quickly, with dogs as your faithful companions – meaning no engine noise and no exhaust. Once out on the trail the only sounds you will hear is the breathing of the dogs and the padding of their feet as they walk. Dog-sledging tours are available throughout Norway, and tours of various distances are available. The most exciting part is ability to take charge of your own team of dogs without a prior experience. The dog-sledging centers usually provide professional instruction.
