What to wear & bring with you: at Camp Tamok, we will provide warm winter clothing - winter overall suits, boots, hat & mittens. However, we recommend dressing in warm winter clothing and in layers so you can adjust your clothing to the weather.
Dog Sledding: Our guide will go through safety instructions and a practical demonstration. Two people share each sled and Husky team. One is the “musher” (driver), and the other can sit back and enjoy the ride. You can switch places midway during the 12 km dog sledding trail. Depending on snow conditions, we will spend approx—1 hr 30 min to complete the trail.
You do not need any previous skills to mush a husky team. All you need is reasonable physical health and an eagerness to try something new.

It is then time to follow our 11 km snowmobile ice fishing track that leads you between the snow-covered mountains up to a frozen lake. Lake Finn marks the halfway point of our snowmobiling adventure and is a good place to take photos, play in the snow and try some ice fishing if time and weather conditions permit. You will drive in pairs with one driver and one passenger per snowmobile and plenty of opportunities to switch places during the two-hour snowmobiling adventure.
