Activity description

Go on a dog sledding excursion near Gelio to explore the beautiful landscapes of the county of Buskerud in southern Norway.

It's important that you get to explore dog sledding the real way. That's why you will drive your own pack of sled dogs, and a musher will teach you everything you need to know about the dogs, dog handling, and how to drive the sled.

After, or during the excursion, your musher will always have some time around the campfire to give you a taste of Norway and get time to tell you about the dog life!

They provide different excursions to suit everyone's needs:
- Husky Taster: a nice trip through the forest and over the frozen lake of Ustedalsfjorden for about 20 - 25 minutes.
- Husky Extra: If you wish to enjoy a longer adventure, you will drive for about 50 minutes.

​Geilo Husky is close to Oslo and has easy access from the train station (only a 1.5km walk from their camp). The farm is 10 min drive from Geilo. Since they are close to both Oslo and Bergen, you can travel from big cities to Geilo for a mushing tour and go back on the same day!

De bewegwijzering/reclamebord was slecht zichtbaar waardoor we het niet konden vinden.

It was a bit challenging due to the melted water on the lake, but apart from that an unforgettable experience!
