Activity description

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.

This activity gave us a chance to see and handle the pups and roam among the other dogs. The sled ride was magical, going through some many different terrains. The only downside, not realisin* where we had to wait for ride and this wait was a bit long.Our musher was a great guide in explaining so much during ride.

Amazing experience!
  • 5 / 5

This was such a magical evening, from the beautiful setting, to the interaction with all the dogs and their puppies, and best of all, an unforgettable ride through the night. Every need is taken care of and the hospitality shown all the way through - especially at the end with a wonderful hot meal in happy company - made this a very special memory.

It was a lovely experience, and they provide you with overalls and a blanket to help fight the cold! You get to play with the dogs and spend time with them before or after the ride. The food afterwards was just perfect to get warm, and it was really delicious.

Family fun sledding and husky cuddling!
  • 5 / 5

Superbly organised evening. Throughly enjoyed everything from the stunning dog sledding trip, to cuddling the amazingly friendly dogs, to drinking tea and having soup in front of the fire. My 11 year old son said it was most the fun he'd ever had! Can't recommend highly enough and would definitely do it again.

Dog sledding very nice. Dinner, it was communicated that it was under the stars to watch the lights. Unfortunately, there were no northern lights.

Very informative meet and greet for the puppies and champion dogs. A great amount of time to simply cuddle the dogs on the yard. A good mixture of activities. Small group allowing for a more impressive and emmersive experience
