Hvilken hundekjørings-tur er den perfekte for deg? 

For Geilo Husky er det viktig å vise "ekte hundekjøring"

Alle våre hundekjørere er konkurransekjørere ved siden av å jobbe for Geilo Husky. Slik sikrer vi at hundene alltid kommer først, får det beste stellet og den beste maten som finnes. Videre sikrer det at du som gjest får oppleve å møte ekte lidenskap og enorm kunnskap om hundekjøring, da mener vi du vil få den beste opplevelsen. Vi er også opptatt av at du skal få prøve å kjøre sleden helt selv. Det er jo det som er hundekjøring. Vi gir deg opplæring og guider deg hele veien. Topptrente Alaska huskier og hundekjørere med mange, mange års erfaring gleder seg til å gi deg en ekte hundekjøreropplevelse!
 

Vi vet at du vil ha det beste ut av ferien og pengene dine - vi vil derfor gjerne hjelpe til for at du får den opplevelsen du ser etter.

Våre forskjellige turer gir deg forskjellig innsikt i hundekjøring. De to korteste (mest solgte) turene er ment for å gi deg en liten smakebit på hva hundekjøring er. Du vil dele turen med andre, og det vil bare være kort tid med hundene for kos og bilder etter turen. Men du får kjøre hundene selv, og vi har også litt tid ved bålet før / etter turen, slik at du kan stille alle spørsmålene du har om hundekjøring.

 

Hvis du vil være mer "hands on" med hundene, anbefaler vi deg å velge en lengre tur med oss. Du kan f.eks velge en 20 km tur hvor du hjelper oss med hundene før / etter turen - avhengig av hvilken tid på dagen du kommer. Denne turen har bare kort stopp med hundene på veien, og ingen bålkos.

 

Heldagstur er det du velger hvis du vil ha den "full pakke" - så får du være med på stell av hundene både før og etter turen, og vi tar en ordentlig lunsjpaue med så mye hundekos du bare kan ønske deg!
Vær oppmerksom på at heldagstur er forskjellig fra hvilken tur du bestiller (det er flere), og du burde være ute i god tid.
