One Night Of Active Aurora Dog Sledding

Searching Availability...

Our evening dog sled trips are truly magical and special.
Depending on the weather, your team will drive you through the deep crisp snow, under the stars with the mountains silhouetted against the moonlight. More often than not, the northern lights will appear above you watching as you ride along on your sled. If the weather is a little wild, experience what it is like to be a true adventurer, bonding with your team as they lead you through the winding path through the woods and up onto the plain.

Parts of our trails are over steep and undulating terrain and therefor only suitable for fit adventure seekers. Two participants share a sled, alternating between mushing the sled and being a passenger.

We provide Arctic proof boots and winter clothing. However, we recommend for you to wear a good quality base layer with a woollen jumper or fleece.

Had an absolute amazing time husky training! The dogs were so hard-working, eager for the run, and they were the cutest things ever! We took turns so everyone in the group had the opportunity to steer. Our guide Tore was very experienced, and had many awesome stories to tell. Highly recommend this if you're in Tromsø.

We went first on the sea kayaking tour, and then the glacier walk the day after that - and i would definitely recommand both of them! Really active days, we were amazingly surprised by the quality of both tours & Tore is very interesting.

What an incredible experience! If you ever entertained the idea of trying sea kayaking, but had second thoughts, give this tour a chance! Our guide, Tore, was a certified instructor and he ensured we knew what to do before we set out. He was very knowledgeable and at no time did I ever feel in danger. For him safety was paramount. He was also a great story-teller and it was evident he loved his country and loved sharing it with others. The scenery was indescribably beautiful- the majestic fjord, the still green waters reflecting the mountains like a mirror, huge Norwegian jellyfish, and even a bottle nose dolphin came up for air near us. This experience of kayaking above the Arctic Circle in untouched beauty, is one I will never forget! Thank-you!

Thank you for an incredible trip and an unforgettable life experience. I'm so delighted I was able to track you down to return for a second instalment of one of the most inspiring and challenging holidays! Having been on the 6 day dog sledding expedition before I knew a little of what to expect but you took this to a whole ‘nother level with your expertise and drive to show us what was special to you. Your knowledge of this land is remarkable!As well as the scenery and camping locations you guided us to, one salient point I forgot to thank you for was creating the most graceful looking camps. Laying a trail, allowing us to sweep around to shape a gathering of people that could in fact, compliment the surrounding landscape. Just Brilliant! You took a bunch of people of different strengths and ensured you helped people at their weakest points and gave responsibility to those who wanted it. Your equipment is nothing but the best! Stylish and very comfy.... We looked good! Of course technically you cant get better for these conditions.I cant forget to mention the welcome we got on arrival, your premises is wonderful, what a phenomenal view! Such a happy welcome with a real personal and authentic approach. I can’t wait to come back next year for my 3rd instalment and bring friends. Also to try your kayaking trips in the midnight sun. I wish you guys could lead me through all my adventures!
