During this dog sledding excursion, you will enjoy the arctic coastal nature with a fantastic view over Tromsø, surrounded with white covered mountains and long fjords.
With the huskies you will go on a trip to Kvaløya, one of Norway’s biggest islands. Enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains surrounding Tromsø and go towards the Balsfjord and Malangen Peninsula.
If the conditions allow, you can drive your own team or can ride on a sledge covered with warm reindeer skins and be driven by an expert guide. Should you wish to drive your own team of huskies, please inform us when booking the excursion (early booking is highly recommended).
After the dog sledding you will return to the ranch where you will meet the 350 huskies and spend some times with the puppies. You will be served “Bidos” (a sami meal with reindeer meat with vegetables) followed by hot coffee and homemade cake, served in a traditional sami tent.
