Activity description

Say hello to a bunch of barking huskies that are ready for action (but still very friendly). You'll drive the dog sled by yourself into the white landscapes, through the beautiful Vass Valley, an uninhabited forest landscape surrounded by majestic mountains.

Upon arrival at the wilderness camp, you'll receive outdoor clothes and shoes to keep you warm during your outing. You will be given instructions on how to drive a dog sled by an experienced musher.

You will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each sled, with the opportunity to switch places halfway. The trails you follow have a total distance of approximately 10-12 km, and you will be on the sled for about 1,5-2 hours.

At the end of the trail, you will return to Camp Tamok. There you will be served a hot meal and fresh coffee in the dining lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent). After you've filled up with food and beverages, the bus will take you back to Tromsø city center.

Not sure if you want to go during the day or in the evening? Daytime trips give you an amazing view of the untamed mountains in the area, whilst the evening trips will give you a good opportunity to experience the Northern Lights while driving the sled.

Evening excursion

The wilderness centre of Camp Tamok is located a 75-minute drive inland from the city of Tromso. The camp is therefore located in a different climate zone. Here, you find stable dry weather with many days of clear sky. Due to the stable climate of this location the persistent Aurora watcher will have excellent chances of spotting the frail rays of this beauty. Also, in this uninhabited area, no artificial light will disturb your experience or your attempt to capture the Aurora Borealis with your camera.

Faire cette activité de chien de traîneau a été une expérience unique. La nature Norvégienne au clair de lune avec un équipage de chiens fantastiques et un musher des plus sympathique testera un souvenir inoubliable. Le dîner servi après fut un pur moment de délice.

Dog Sledding

unvergesslich!
  • 5 / 5

es war ein wirklich unvergesslicher Tag, es war alles top organsiert und alle waren sehr freundlich! Was man noch verbessern könnte wäre dass man morgens den Bus besser findet, es ist bei den vielen Bussen am Hotel etwas verwirrend. Und vielleicht etwas mehr Zeit im traditionellen und gemütlichen "Zelt(?)" nach dem Fahren. Aber sonst wirklich weiter zu empfehlen!

Some dogs are running a little slow. I realize that it is safety reasons, but it was a little disappointing.

Harder than it looks!

Dog sledding is definitely a must when visiting Norway in winter and I’m so glad we did it! However, it is much harder than it looks and you definitely need a good level of fitness. There was a lot of snow when we did it which meant that we had to run and push the sled (a lot) to give the dogs a hand. The dogs are absolutely gorgeous and love all of the attention and fuss. I would recommend doing this during the day (we did it at night) as I think it’d be better as you’d be able to see more and enjoy the beautiful landscape. All in all a great activity and we really enjoyed it!

So much fun and more intense than we expected! The dogs are so strong and powerful. Did flip off our sled quite hard and smacked into some trees so was a bit more cautious after this

An amazing experience

We did ice fishing and dog sledding. The dog sledding was long enough to enjoy the view and it was really fun. We could not fish anything but it was a very peaceful moment on the iced lake with one of the few suns that appear in winter

Upon arrival at the camp we were warmly greeted by the instructors whom guided us through the day with utter contempt about their role and a sheer will for us to have new and amazing experiences in that marvelous spot. Would fully recommend to any dog and nature lovers.

Unforgettable experience!

A must-do! I cannot put in words how great the feeling was.

Schönes Erlebnis, Titel (Full day sledding) jedoch irreführend
  • 5 / 5
Posted

Gut organisiert, schönes Camp, in Beschreibung steht 8h-1day, und Titel „whole day“, total Zeit war in Realität 7h davon ca 3.5 h Fahrt, 1 h Logistik/umkleiden, sledding 1h 15, essen 1 h. Daher insgesamt gut aber wenig Zeit für den eigentlichen Spass, Erwartung war durch den Titel etwas anders. Es ist auch keine Zeit eingeplant die Hunde anzuschauen oder etwas über sie zu lernen. Wer also zb Zeit zum schauen und evtl puppies sehen möchte, muss eine Tour buchen, in der das gezielt eingeplant ist. Hunde und Schlittenfahrt trotzdem sehr schön und lustig.

The feeling of the ice cold air against your face as you’re being pulled along by 5 adorable dogs; unbeatable. Seeing the snow covered mountains around you as you meander through the trees in the dark of the night is purely magical. I’d do this again and again and again.

Exciting adventure!

The whole dog sledding was fun filled and the best experience of all. We wouldn't trade this for any other activities although our friends who went snowmobiling were telling us how much fun they had. The scenery when we stopped to take a short break was simply breathtaking and the dogs were so energetic and powerful. Overall it is a highly recommended a must-do activity.

One of the best nights you’ll ever have !

Although we did the evening excursion hoping to see the northern lights it did not matter that we did not because it was such an unreal experience all around with every other factor :))

It was by far one of the best experience I've had in my life so far. Well-treated and friendly dogs and feeling the wind in your face as well as being between the mountains give us an indescribable feeling of freedom. Only a side comment as a possible improvement (it's not a criticism), providing pictures while we are sledding in the best spot during the track would be a good idea : )

Once in a lifetime experience!

The sledding was so much fun! The dogs were all friendly and ready to run the whole route. Both participants are able to be both a passenger and driver. The scenery was beautiful and the ride was the perfect length at an hour and a half. Your legs definitely get tired after the roughly 45 minutes of driving you will do! The traditional Sami dish after was also great.

The dogs were very friendly and clearly excited to run! It was great fun - both of us were able to try being the driver and passenger so a good mix of taking in the scenery plus an exhilarating ride. Warm food and drinks were very welcome afterwards and all added to the experience!

We went dog sledding at night, and it was just fantastic - really well organised, really fun and whilst other reviews suggest it is hard work, dog sledding is accessible and easy for anyone that has a reasonable fitness level. I would definitely come back again!

Great dog sled tour through beautiful nature. We had a lot of fun even though we had bad luck with our Group. Dog sledding requires a good physical condition (as mentioned in the discription!) so don't book a self-drive tour if you're not even able to run! And I don't understand why People want to do this although they do not really like Dogs?! So we had to stop during the tour very often and unfortunately missed out time with the dogs after sledding. But that's not the fault of the host. We enjoyed the time with the Dogs and the meal afterwards anyway.

Thoroughly enjoyed it! Can be physically demanding. These dogs have so much power and can pick up speed so quickly so hold on tight always. So much fun.

Essential to wear all warm clothing (-20 during evening), especially 2 pairs of gloves..invigorating going down hill, but quite physical helping the dogs up the slope!..best sled would be right behind instructor, as we had to regularly stop behind a slower run sled in front of us, very frustrating as we wanted to mush faster! The food was well earned after activity, and we also had a glimpse of the Northern Lights...fantastico...thank you Norway!

It was an awesome experience. Only issue was the group was so large if someone wasn't following instructions, the rest of the convoy would have to stop while issues were resolved. This activity is not for those who want to be leisurely . Keep in mind that while going up hill you must assist the dogs by pushing the sled or running . Those who did not held up the procession.

Worth it!!
