Activity description

Explore the mountains and valleys with your own team of sled dogs during a full day mushing expedition!

Each member of the excursion will be responsible for their own pack of huskies and will experience every aspect of a musher's life in the Arctic.

Your dog sledding adventure lasts about 6 hours and you can enjoy the stunning beauty of the Arctic wilderness as you head out from Tromsø Villmarkssenter on Kvaløya island (just outside Tromsø). An experienced team will support you all the way and teach you to control the sled and take care of your team.

When you return to the camp, a warm Lavvu (Sami tent) will be waiting for you to relax in. You'll be served a traditional meal, a Bidos (Reindeer stew with vegetables) with tea or coffee, and a chocolate cake (vegetarian option also available).

No previous experience is needed but the trip requires a good physical shape. The Alaskan huskies are very friendly but love to run so it's important that you can control them throughout the day.

With a little luck, you'll be able to spot wildlife along the route such as Fox, Eagles, Arctic and Snowshoe Hares, Moose, and Reindeers!

You will have the opportunity to try driving a dog sled yourself. Each member of the expedition will lead a team of huskies on their own through the pristine beauty of the Arctic wilderness.

Dog sledding in Tromso
  • 4 / 5

Dog sledding. It was nice, but rather high and somewhat over- priced. We were a family with 6 people, so a discount would have been fair.

Great Experience!

C'était une magnifique journée et surtout un encadrement très agréable et consciencieux. Belle randonnée, sans difficulté mais offrant de superbes vues et des chiens qui avaient envie d'avancer.... Repas sympathique dans un espace typique....

Dog Sled Driving
  • 5 / 5

Was very well organised and super fun. The guides and mushers were so patient! Everything was explained clearly and we got to swap the driving with our partner about half way. The dogs were amazing and very affectionate. It was quite physical helping the dogs go up the small hills which kept you very warm.

Dogsledding - Lovely team
  • 4 / 5

Dogsledding was fun - The dogs were great. I am a bit of a speed person so I was keen to go faster that we did. We had to wait for groups behind us who were going slower so there was a lot of stop and start.
