Activity description

Enjoy an exciting journey through the Arctic in this 2-day dog sledding expedition with an overnight camp in the wilds around Tromsø!

Before the excursion starts, you'll get a full introduction to dog sledding and how to look after your dog team. Then, you'll head out towards the Norwegian mountains!

Depending on the weather, you'll travel for 5 to 8 hours to the campsite for the night where you'll help take care of the Huskies before setting up your own camp for the night. With a little luck, you'll be able to contemplate the Northern Lights, one of the seven natural wonders of the world!

After breakfast the next day, you'll go further up the mountains where you can enjoy more of the unspoiled beauty of the Arctic landscapes. Along the route, you may spot the local fauna such as Arctic Foxes, Eagles, Hares, Moose, and Reindeers.

Around 5 pm, you'll return to Tromsø Villmarkssenter where you'll be served a traditional Sami meal Bidos (Reindeer meat with vegetables) in a Lavvu (Sami tent).

During your 2-day mushing adventure, you'll learn all about the activity. No previous experience is needed but the trip requires a good physical shape. The Alaskan huskies are very friendly and love to run!
