It is when you dress them well and it’s not too cold. Children can enjoy the tour very much if they are dressed well enough. For infants we would be wary with travelling below -20 Celcius.
If it’s really cold we travel according to the capabilities of our weakest member and might adapt the tour to suit the colder temperatures.
Pregnant women are not at greater risk of an accident or harm than other participants in the tour. It is recommended that pregnant women join the tour as passengers and preferably in guide sled. However we recommend careful consideration if you wish to join a cart or sled driving part of the tour when on the 1st or 3rd trimester. You can send us an email if you wish to have more information and it’s also useful to note it in the booking in advance. If the program requires special organization (e.g. additional transport), Nordic Adventures shall not be responsible for the possible extra costs.
Driving dogs can be a cold activity and experienced mushers are masters in cold weather dressing. Through years of experience they have developed often very personal ways of staying warm.
Each person is different in how they stay warm so we provide you with thermal outer clothes that will help keep you warm based on our experience. Also taken consideration the period of time you will spend outside during the safari.
We provide you with:
– A complimentary thermal tube scarf
– A thermal outer overall
– Woolen socks
– Winter boots with thermal liner
– Winter mittens
– Winter hat
We do not provide snow goggles during our tours as we do not recommend using them. Personally we prefer to have our vision unimpaired. Goggles tend to fog up, limit visibility and cause unnecessary driving accidents with unexprienced dog drivers. If you really do want to use goggles please bring your own then.
We have what are called “Alaskan Huskies” They are relatively unknown outside of the sled-dog world. They tend to be more diverse in size, eye color and shape than their pure-breed cousins the “Siberian Huskies”. Please ask us about them, we are more than willing to “talk dog” and answer all your questions!
The answer is complicated and simple at the same time; Sometimes!
We breed dogs to keep our kennel healthy and that means sometimes no puppies and sometimes 1 or 2 litters per year. These pups tend to be born in the spring time and can not be considered “puppies” any more by time the snowfalls. We do our best to prevent unwanted and unplanned pregnancies in the kennel by castrating all our non breeding males.
We are aware that certain kennels time and or plan their litters for display purposes, but we find this a dubious and unethical practice not beneficial to the welfare of the dogs.
There are a few different ways you can book our trips. First of all, you can book almost all our trips right here on our website. There is a booking window on each tour page and we do recommend that you book and pay for your trip there, preferably in good time as we keep our groups small and some tours tend to sell out.
If the trip you would like to book is not bookable online, you can call or email our office directly, the phone number is +358 40 744 2567. Another way is to send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form. What we need to have is your name, how many people are in your party, where you are staying, a way of contacting you either an e-mail or a phone number and what tour you are trying to book.
