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 (3 in carts) 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 3 people!
We offer a total experience, where you get close to the dogs and the stunning nature around Røros. If you want you can join and help prepare the dogs before we leave the dog farm. 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 14, 2019, we can also offer cart rides, then with 3 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).
