EXCLUSIVE DAY OF ACTIVE DOGSLEDDING

Forget horsepower, the real way to experience Norway is by dog power.

Experience the Arctic wilderness like a true Norwegian musher on this private winter adventure.

Drive your very own team of affectionate, friendly, intelligent and athletic Alaskan huskies. These dogs were born to run. Let them show you how to really experience the snow.

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.

Our trip starts at Radisson Blu Hotel in Tromsø. The drive to our camp takes about 35 minutes, where you will be greeted by our friendly staff and get suited up for the cold before meeting your guide and the dogs.

Your bona fide wilderness guide will give you hands-on instruction and tips on how to mush your team and control your sled, preparing you fully for this unique adventure. The dog sled ride will take about 3 hours*, weather dependent. A well worth trip which is followed by your guides racing stories whilst sitting around a camp fire with your lunch, a Norwegian field meal, and a hot beverage. On your return, you will have the opportunity to unharness your team before saying good bye to your faithful dogs.
