Dog Sledding in Røros
- Winter Adventures
Join in on a unique dog sled ride in magical surroundings in the UNESCO site Røros! Drive your own dog sleigh and experience a fantastic connection with the dogs in beautiful and untouched nature.
Just outside Røros, you can join in on a fantastic dog sled ride. After you have been transported from the center to the dog farm, you will join smaller groups of up to 4 guests at the same time pr. trip.
On the ride, you will have a total experience, where you get close to the dogs and the stunning nature around Røros. You drive your own dog team with 4-5 dogs and get to feel the special interaction with the dogs, in beautiful surroundings. Persons from the age of 14 can drive their own sleigh, while smaller children are welcome to sit in the sleigh during the ride.
From September 1, it is possible to join cart rides, with 4 guests per trip. The route goes on dirt roads and trails through seasonal farms (for livestock farming in the mountains unique for Norway) in Erlidalen. The temperature must be under + 10 degrees Celsius, otherwise, it will be too warm for the dogs to run.
