Our travel experts at MNT have been travelling the Arctic regions with their own children and like to think of the dog-sledding experience as one of holiday highlights for the entire family. Not only is the journey through the frozen winter forests a magnificent adventure, being responsible for your own pack of huskies is a confidence-boosting learning curve, too. Be in touch for our individual recommendations for your family.
