Dogsledding tours

If you haven´t tried dogsledding yet, then you really have something to look forward to. Through the woods and fields, the only thing that breaks the silence is the sound of paws and the snow under the runners of the sled. Season: December 15 to April 15 and dog sledding on wheels September 1 to November 31.
