Explore the mountains and valleys of the Arctic wilderness during a 4-hour dog sledding evening excursion. Come and join for a magical experience under the shimmer of the Aurora Borealis lights close to the Arctic Circle with your family!
With the help of headlamps and experienced guides, you will experience something truly magical when dog sledding. Surrounded by Nordic Arctic nature, close to the Arctic Circle while the northern lights are shimmering is something you will never forget. With a 2:1 guest to guide ratio, the experienced guides will be there for you every step of the way.
Overall, the duration of the tour is 4 hours. At the start you meet up at Radisson Blu Hotel, to later be transported to an amazing location ideal for dog sledding. This is when the adventure starts when you meet the spectacular dogs for the first time, and when you jump on the sled for an adventure you will never forget!
The dog sledding ride is about 4 kilometers long, 45-60 minutes depending on weather conditions. After the ride, you'll get a chance to meet the Huskies and play with the puppies. Tromsø Wilderness Center has 300 husky friends, and you will also be given the time to spend time with the puppies. After the excursion, you'll gather around the fire and have a good Bacalao - local stockfish prepared with a tomato sauce (vegetarian meal available upon request).
After the whole experience, you will be transported back to the meeting point at Radisson Blu Hotel with new memories that will last with you for a lifetime.
In this option, you will ride the sled as a passenger of one of the experienced mushers. You will most likely be two people in one sled, but you will not be able to drive the sled yourself.
This tour is most suited for guests who want a more relaxed experience or would like to concentrate on taking pictures, families with children or elderly passengers.
