When I first came across this, I pictured myself sitting calmly while being dragged across the snowy tundra by a few husky dogs. Upon arrival I realised that I was the one commandeering the sled. I am going to be honest and say that I fell down a few times in the snow. But despite all of the falls, I... More

A 'difficult' experience as only 2 of us turned up for our time slot and all 3 dog teams had to run at same time. This meant my friend was seated with one driver and myself and the other leader drove the remaining sleds. I found it difficult to keep the dogs speed under control as they like to 'race'... More

We had a fantastic trip with Geilo Husky before Christmas. We booked a 5-8km trip, but an alternative route was found due to poor snow coverage, so we got a 10km trip instead. We were very happy to go on a longer trip. The guides were very friendly and helpful, and the dogs were nice too. We both got to... More

We were hesitant at first but made the decision to go ahead for the ride. It was probably the wonderful thing we could have done and the experience was amazing. I look forward to visiting Geilo again and definitely Husky sledding as well would be in my itinerary.

Two friends and I booked the 25 minute sled ride. A friend and I switched out half way which was good as its a very different experience being in the sled to being in control of it although would have loved longer of both. Staff were both very friendly and we were given some nice hot coffee afterwards and allowed... More

If you like dogs and / or like working with dogs then this is for you. We were staying at the Vestlia and so this was just a short walk down the road but they are very well located wherever you are staying in Geilo; it's not difficult to get to or do Geilo Husky! Simply put you turn up,... More

This was a lovely thing to do in the middle of our skiing holiday - we opted for the 5 km dog sled and it was brilliant- driving the dogs around the lake. Siri made us very welcome and showed us the basics of driving - not hard and just takes a bit of practice. Only tip is consider who... More

Mari managed to get us in at late notice so we were very grateful! Our two daughters were in the lead sled with the guide and I was in control of the second with my wife riding in the sled. Was fast and fantastic fun particularly over the bumps and lumps which had us laughing!Lovely location around the frozen lake... More

We did a family 30 minute trip in 2 sleds around the beautiful countryside and frozen lake. What an experience! The staff were really friendly, knowledgeable and fun. The trip was cold, fast and bumpy and at the end of the trip both my young children wanted to go again! When they found out they couldn't, they asked to take... More

These guys are worth a visit if you're in Geilo and want to try something different. It's beautiful to see the landscape from the sled and hear the dogs working. Going downhill gets your heart racing! FUN :-) Very friendly dogs and they were super excited to get out for a run-howling away as we helped harnessing them up. The... More
