 sleddog tours near Funäsdalen  


Still impressed from my first dog-tour in northern Norway around newyear 1996/1997 I wanted to do some more tours of this kind. A little bit later I read a nice ad on the web by somebody who was looking for people joining him on dog tours near Funäsdalen, Sweden, see map on the right. Sounded quite nice, and in March 1998 I joined Armin for this adventure (is there a better thing to do three weeks before defending the PhD thesis?). The tours are organized by Jack Andersen of Camp Lo in Åsarna, Sweden. The nice thing about these tours are that they don't feel commercia,l with a friendly atmosphere. This is mainly due to the fact that usually the people show up every spring, equipment, cooking and getting there is organised jointly, accompanied by preparation and picture-watching meetings in Düsseldorf. Not surprisingly, more tours in 1999, 2002 and 2003 should follow. Additionally, Jack's camp in Funäsdalen made a good base for some winter trips. The area itself is quite popular in Sweden for skiing and famous Femund and Rogen are not far away. Certainly a good place to be "outdoors".

Interested in joining us some sunny day? Then do not hesitate to contact me.... The tour starts on sunday and ends on friday thereafter, resuming in the sauna in Funäsdalen with a tiny beer and some talking. Accomodation would be in tents, two people team up for cooking etc. Going with a team of five plus musher, all the members drive sleds on their own with five dogs. Dog food is carried on the sled for the complete tour.
