"The best about the human is the dog" - Nicolas Toussaint Charlet
Kennel Dølanvollen Dogsledding Røros offers dogsledding from our kennel, a 10 minute drive north of Røros town center. We arrange tours in small groups of up to 4 guests at the same time pr. trip, and we can do several trips for the day. Please send a request, even if you are more than 4 people!
We offer a total experience, where you get close to the dogs and the stunning nature around Røros. We offer a sled ride of about 2 hours where you drive your "own" dog sleigh with 4-5 dogs, and get to feel the special interaction with the dogs, in beautiful surroundings. We can also offer a shorter trip of about 1 hour.
From September 1., we can also offer cart rides, with 4 guests per trip. The route goes on dirt roads and trails through "setervoller" in Erlidalen. (seasonal farm for livestock farming in the mountains unique for Norway). The temperature must be under + 10 degrees, otherwise it will be too warm for the dogs to run.
As a contribution to limiting infection and the spreading of COVID-19 and to ensure both the guide’s, dogs’ and our guests’ health, we ask that people experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or respiratory infection do not visit us - but rather postpone the visit until they are healthy and symptom free. We also ask everyone to follow the current national guidelines for social distancing, quarantine and isolation. For more information on Norwegian guidelines, visit http://FHI.no (Norwegian Institute of Public Health).
