Our sledges are handmade at”The Silent Way” by Kenneth, your lead musher, who knows what is the best to use on our mountain tours. Our experience is beneficial on all our tours. Dogs at The Silent Way are very sociable and kind. They love to be patted almost as much as they like you to put on their harness and pull you wherever you wish on your dogsledding holiday... may that be through cold winter days... while northern light dance for you... warm and beautiful sunny days when the mountain is kind or challenging stormy weather. All the nature you can imagine... dense forests... proud mountain birch... wide stretched mires... bare white mountains with deep valleys... pure clean lakes with trout’s and char and beautiful social dogs.
On our dogsled safari we work with small groups, which mean more dogs for your team and more personal service. We offer complete free clothing and boots. You can be sure you’ll stay warm on your dogsled holiday. We’re the experts on cold weather comfort.
