Dog sledding is a tradition of travel in the Arctic. Our dog sledding consist of a musher, a sled and Alaskan huskies. It´s an adventurous activity for your Arctic holiday in Tromsø. We love doing this and want to share the amazing feeling of leading a dog sled with happy and strong Alaskan huskies. From our kennel we slide into the snow-covered highlands of Kvaløya, between trees and over hills. And if we are lucky – the Northern Lights will dance on the sky above us on the late evening tour. For the really passionate polar adventurer we also offer a 7- days Dog Sledding Expedition.
You don´t need any experience because our guides will give you all the equitment you need, teach you how to use the sled and then into the wild we go. We will pick you up with our mini-bus in Tromsø city and drive you back after the tour.
