Feel the fresh air rush past your face as you glide through Scandinavian snowlands, a pack of lively husky dogs towing you at speed. Dog-sledding is a breathtaking thrill ride and plenty of tourist boards across Scandinavia arrange day excursions for total beginners. But if you imagine the bounding hound dogs will be doing all the work, think again: make sure you’re in good shape and expect sore arms in the morning.
Mush! Take a visit to the Villmarkssenter outside Tromsø in Norway to canoodle with friendly husky pups before a day excursion on a sled. Some tour packages will also warm your cockles with an authentic Sami feast of reindeer stew.
