Enjoy the spectacular scenery and crystal clear air while feeling the rhythm of sled dogs running and panting.

The Friendly Course is an easy course - perfect for guests who would like to sample the experience of dog-sledding.
The course is flat - with few hills and valleys, making it a good recommendation for tourists from overseas and families.
  • The course begins with an indoor lecture from your guide, greeting the dogs, harnessing them, setting the musher rope, and then you're ready for a thrilling start!!

  • Guests will not merely be passengers, but will be able to personally experience all of the actual elements of dog-sledding - including rope management during a run, audible instructions to the dogs, speed control through braking, disembarking from the sled and running, and pedaling (kicking the snow with one leg to assist the dogs).

  • After reaching the goal, it's time to remove the ropes and harnesses, reward the dogs with a treat, and enjoy some tea in the warmth of base camp. After relaxing and catching your breath, the tour will come to an end.
