Dog sledding is a truly beautiful fairy tale of the winter, and our most sought after activity. A tour with dog sledge will give you a great nature experience. It is exciting, fast paced and fun. The guides will give you sufficient training, and adapts the tour to your wishes and skills.

The dog sledding adventure starts with showing up at the large lavvo tent in Danseråsen, only a couple of minutes walk from the Spruce Hut and Birch Hut, and approximately 10 minutes walk from the Sky Hut – or quicker if you are using the quicksledges parked by the huts. The distance from the Larch Hut and Pine Hut are respectively 5 and 15 kilometers. You will participate in harnessing the dogs. It may be possible stay in the lavvo and by the bonfire before and after the sledge ride if you request this. After the ride, coffee, tea or toddy, and baking bread twists, are offered in the lavvo.

Safety is important. The guide will be riding in front with his dog sledge. Most often, two participants will be sharing one dog sledge, and shifts leading the sledge underway. Children or adults can sit in the guide’s sledge if desired. The tracks in the almenning forest runs through beautiful, open woodland with crooked pine trees and nice viewpoints. Tree Top Huts have prepared a kind track of 3 kilometers over marshlands and open terrain, that can be run two rounds. A more challenging track of 6-7 kilometers goes over Haukåsen, a hill where you get wide views over lake Mjøsa, the town of Gjøvik, and all the way to the mountains of Gausdal and Rondane.

We recommend scheduling dog sledding either before arrival or after your departure from the hut, to make the most of your stay at the treetop hut. Dress well for the weather and temperatures, and enjoy this fascinating experience! The activity takes about two hours for small groups, and three for larger groups. The actual sledding time takes about an hour. Price: NOK 799,- per adult, and NOK 399,- per child of age 4-12. Children under the age of 4 are riding for free.

We urge you to dress properly with warm winter clothes, warm shoes, headgear, scarf and mittens for the sake of a joyable experience!

Send oss mail med ankomstdag og hytte. Hvilken tur dere ønsker og hvor mange voksne og hvor mange barn (4-12 år )som skal prøve hundespann. samt om dere ønsker turen kallt Danseråsen eller Villmark?

Mange velger å ønske hundespannkjøring før oppholdet eller på avreisedagen. om du er fleksibel på dette og skriver det i mailen så er det lettere for oss å løse logistikken

Hundekjøring i små individuelle grupper ved Tretopphyttene krever en del logistikk. Hundekjørerne våre har også et treningsopplegg fram mot Femundsløpet og Finnmarksløpet. Vi tar imot dine ønsker og sender disse til vår base av tilknyttede lokake hundekjørere. Vi gjør det vi kan for å innfri dine ønsker og i 8 av 10 tilfeller lykkes vi med dette :-) Kanskje vil du kjenne igjen lederhunden du hadde i ditt spann når du ser Femundsløpet på tv!
