Tromsø - Dog Sledding - Northern Lights in Lyngsfjord


This excursion will take you to the majestic Lyngen, where you will enjoy a longer dog sledding excursion (2-3 hours) in inland valleys between towering mountains.

Say hello to a bunch of friendly huskies that are ready for action. The dog sledding winter adventure starts with learning some instructions how to drive a dog sledding team. Then you drive your own dog sled by yourself into the white landscapes, through the beautiful Vass Valley. The trails you follow have a total distance of approximately 15 km. The area where you lead is totally uninhabited, the speed of the dogs and the spectacular landscape will impress you. You will drive in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each sled, with opportunity to switch places half way. At the end of your trip you will return to Camp Tamok. There you will be served with a hot meal in a Sami tent. A transfer to Scandic Ishavshotel will end this trip.
You will have the opportunity to experience the Northern Lights. Please note however that northern lights observations are never guaranteed.
