Tromsø - Dog Sledding - 2 days expedition

Medium

Join experienced mushers for an overnight stay in the arctic wilderness. You will prepare and drive your own team of Alaskan huskies for 5-8 hours to the campsite where you settle down for the night. You get to take care of the dogs before you set up your own camp in the snow.

If the sky is clear you might sleep with the northern lights above, and if the weather is rough you will get a good understanding of the North-Norwegian nature. Please note that accommodation is very simple; there are no toilet and shower facilities, dinner will be prepared by the open fire.

After breakfast the next day you will go further up the mountains and can enjoy pristine the beauty of the arctic wilderness. Possible wildlife sightings along the trail include fox, eagles, arctic and snowshoe hares, moose and reindeers. Around 17:00 you will return the Centre where you will be served a traditional sami meal “Bidos” (Reindeer meat with vegetables) in the sami tent.

No former experience with dog sledding is required, you will learn from the experienced guides as you go.

Food and all equipment is included, and a we guarantee a proper polar winter experience and a memory for a lifetime with two full days of dog sledding.
