Frequently Asked Questions:
How do we pay?
If you are using the online booking service, your payment will be done and over with straight away. If you are booking through email you can pay on the spot, by either cash or card.
Do you do your tours in all kinds of weather?
Absolutely! Dog sledding is even more of an experience in tough conditions. We make sure that everyone is well dressed, and we have both extra winter suits and foot bags available for rent should you need them on extra cold days, in addition to blankets for the people sitting in the sled. However, as you get going you won't really have time to get that cold, just make sure to wear some warm shoes and good socks, in addition to some good gloves and you will be fine! Should the weather somehow be too extreme (which has not happened before) we will notify you at least a day before and offer to change your scheduled time/date.
WHAT SHOULD WEAR/ DO YOU PROVIDE EXTRA CLOTHING?
We recommend warm shoes, thick and wind proof gloves and wind proof jacket and trousers. Shoe bags to put over your own shoes and warm suits may be rented for nok 50,- per unit. Also, we have some warm gloves.
Do We control the sleds ourselves?
Yes! Unless you do not want too or are under 13 years old, then you have the option to sit in front which can be just as fun, and great for taking pictures. Those who are a bit nervous can start by sitting down, and then try to control the sled on the way back from the swapping point. Then the dogs are a bit more calm and you will have gotten a bit of a feeling for it. We are yet to experience someone who regretted trying! Still, if you cannot do steering because of disabilities, have a broken arm etc or just dont want to - it is of course perfectly ok to sit on and simply enjoy it all.
Where do we meet up?
See directions to our location at Sjusjøen here. If you also meet up at the exact time you have been given that would be the best, as we have time to properly go through the instructions. No need be there way ahead of that time.
Can we bring younger children?
The 6km tours are perfect for younger children, not too long or cold. Babies could be a little cold of course, so wrap them up nicely. We do not recommend bringing children to the longer trips however, unless they are really used to the winter conditions, and are dressed properly for the occasion. You will be seated on underlays/pelts in the sled and we will also wrap you into warm and cozy wool blankets.
Can children go without the company of parents?
Children under 13 years old can sit in the leader sled, the one that the guide is using. But it is more fun for the children to go on the sled that their parents are controlling! We are more of an activity for families together.
Can i change my mind?
Of course you can! You are free to change your reservation at any time, just please let us know as soon as possible, and preferably more than 36 hours before your booked tour. Same with cancellations, if you are later than 24 hours before we will ask for 100% of your payment as we will not have time to reallocate your sled. Se more information under or read our full terms here.

Cancellations made 3 days or less prior to your day of arrival: Cancellation fee is 50% of the total amount.
Less than 24 hours prior to your day of arrival: No refund.
If the you are not there at the time of your booking, the guides are allowed to start the tour without the missing participant (in order to not delay the tour for the rest of the participants). Although we will try to wait a little bit to make sure everyone is there, we cannot allow for too much waiting time as it will affect all other tours that day. If you show up way later than your time, and we are unable to fit you into another tour that day, this will be considered a “No Show” and no refund will be provided.
Any trip cancelled or interrupted by the client or because of the actions of the client will result in no refund.
Sjusjøen Husky Tours strongly recommends to all its clients to purchase travel insurance from a reputable provider in their country of origin, prior to their journey to Norway.
