Combine the best of two worlds- an overnight stay in our Aurora Camp and a dog sledding adventure the next day.

After a short drive from Tromsø city, you will arrive at our center, where we will equip you with thermal overalls and boots, so you stay warm and cozy while waiting for the lights to appear.
Then you will go on a guided tour of our dog yard, where you can meet and cuddle our 200 Alaskan huskies. Afterward, in our Gamme hut we will serve Bacalao – a traditional Norwegian fish dish made from locally sourced cod.
The rest of the evening you can spend outside around a bonfire. As our center away from Tromsø and city lights, the sky overhead is dark and very well suited for Aurora watching.
When you get tired, you can head to our Lavvu-tent that you will share with the other guests. It’s furnished with soft reindeer skins and high-quality camping gear. Wrap yourself in a warm sleeping bag and enjoy the night.
The next morning, after a hearty breakfast, we will take you out for a dog sledding adventure! You can decide if you want to ride the sled as the passenger of one of our experienced guides, or if you want to drive it yourself (book ride or self-drive option accordingly).
When you come back from this adventure, a hot lunch of Bidos (Sami reindeer stew) will restore your strength before you say goodbye to our dogs and we will bring you back to Tromsø.

* We have a private lavvo for those who want more privacy. It has one double bed, 2 single beds and electrical heating. The additional cost for the private tent is NOK 2000. If you are interested in this option, please let us know after you have booked the tour. The availability can be checked beforehand, please send an email to mail@villmarkssenter.no

** Please note that the self-drive activity has an age restriction of 16 years and requires good physical condition.

*** We are offering the overnight program for the rest of the winter season. Instead of the Northern Light program, we take you out for an evening snowshoe hike around our center. Please look for the SNOWSHOEING AND DOG SLEDDING CAMP.
