Activity description

Discover Norway's beautiful winter wonderland, traverse remote landscapes on snowshoes and in the company of huskies! A perfect experience for those who want to try something completely different while making the most of their time outdoors. 

Once you've met your guide at the meeting point, you'll set off on the 25-minute drive to Kvaloya, Norway's fourth-largest island. There, you'll tour the kennel and meet the dogs before gearing up in winter clothing and snowshoeing equipment. That's when the adventure begins! Your new furry friends will accompany you and your group throughout the excursion. 

During the trip, you'll see the magnificent fjords and mountains surrounding Tromsø. You might even spot wildlife like reindeer, moose, and different species of birds. Weather permitting, you'll stop for a break. Your guide will build a fire and serve snacks with warm drinks. You'll relax on reindeer pelts and savour the moment before continuing onward! If the weather takes a turn, snacks and drinks will be served around an open fire at the cabin instead.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity and book your Husky and Snowshoe hike in Tromsø today!

Les instructeurs sont hyper gentils, les chiens ajoutent du fun à la balade en raquettes, on peut caresser toute la meute au retour. Et les paysages sont magnifiques, je recommande à fond !

A fun experience. Definitely was more tiring than I was expecting it to be but was something different and very enjoyable. Seeing the huskies afterwards made it all worth it!

  • 5 / 5

It was a great walk in the snow, the snowshoes took some time to get used to but the guide was great at helping you put them on. The group wasn't big so you could enjoy the activity. The views are amazing and the walk is very enjoyable.

Very nice experience, the hot chocolate, cakes and marshmallow around a fire were delicious. We had the opportunity to see where the huskies are living and even saw and cuddle some puppies.

A wonderful experience if hiking outdoors is something you're into. Definitely a great experience, even for a first timer like myself. Getting to see parts of nature that aren't accessible was a treat. Added bonus to be able to have a retired sled dog join us and pull us along!

Snowshoeing- very well organised, friendly guides who were helpful, even arranged for us to have hot drinks and delicious chocolate cake around an open fire halfway through the walk. All abilities taken care of. Even had one of the huskies accompany us. We loved it!!!!

It was an activity not on top of our list, but eventually it was the best trip we did in Tromsø. Next time I will definitely do the overnight trip!
