Hardangervidda National Park is perfect dog-sledding territory. It is the largest high mountain plateau in Europe and it looks at its best during 'springtime' - from the end of February up until May. Everywhere you look there’s an astonishing view and, if you’re lucky, you’ll see some of the 8000 reindeers that live up there.

They have several dog-sledding trips operating - from quick tasters to longer safaris. We'll see what's available and get you booked in.

Your guide will provide plenty of instruction and then introduce you to these friendly, but ever-so excited dogs. They will ensure you are comfortable before heading out. It's two to a sleigh - one driving, the other probably taking copious amounts of photographs whilst clinging on for dear life. You will have opportunity to switch roles as frequently as you like. The important instructions for the driver include shouted commands for the lead dogs, how to lean in to corners and the judicious use of the drag brake. You need to slow them down!
