Dog and Ski – 2024

A wilderness adventure



11th to 14th of April



From 4-12 persons.



From NOK 14.500 per person

We end the season with a one of a kind tour to the Norwegian wilderness. Thursday night we meet at Johnsgård for dinner and preparations for the trip. End the night with a sauna (and maybe a dip in the icy lake?).

Friday morning after a delicous breakfast, we pack up our gear and drive to meet the dogs and leave the civilication for a few days.

To fly over the snow with only the sound of wind and dogfeet is a magical experience. The guides from Fjell Huskies makes sure we are safe and takes us to basecamp at lake Skardtjønna at 1196 meter above sealevel, just at the footsteps of the mighty Rendalssølen.

After we arrive at the basecamp, we get ourself ready for some serious skiing. The mountainridge of Sølen is big, and gives us plenty of opportunities. Based on the current snow- and weather conditions, we will choose where to go. Hopefully we can enjoy the sunset from the mountaintop before we head back to camp. In the basecamp an amazing dinner with local food awaits. If the sky is clear, we will be able to see stars. And if we are lucky, there is also possibility to see reindeers or other animals while we are out skiing.

After breakfast Saturday, we are ready for another day of skiing, and just enjoying the wilderness. Far away from everything. Another great dinner and chatty night around the campfire.

Sunday after lunch, the dogs will come and bring us back to the cars, hopefully packed with a lot of new stories and memories to tell.
