Introduction

After helping to harness the dogs, your guide will lead the way out from the yard. The dogs will yelp and bark with impatience, but as soon as they are out on the trail, the beautiful silence will sink over you. The eager dogs will set off at a cracking pace, but after a couple of kilometres they will settle into a comfortable speed. The guide will drive first and you will follow. You will be able to swap between mushing and enjoying the scenery from the sled while out on the trail. While out in the dark, you will turn off your headlamps and after a short time, the contours of the mountains will appear. Looking south, you can see that it is lighter towards the horizon. The snow covered landscape will reflect the light from the moon, stars and if you are lucky, the Northern Lights.
