A team of huskies will take you out in pairs, as mushers or passengers, riding through the snowy forest and on the ice that covers the famous Alta River. There’s no better way of getting close to nature than this. While the huskies love to run in frigid temperatures, the frozen landscape is like nothing you’ll ever see, glittering in the sunlight. Note that if there is not enough snow for the dog sledding activity, we offer a ride with dog carts instead. Read more about this tour here.
