Explore the mountains surrounding Tromsø in a unique and exciting way!
Taste the real musher’s life and explore the mountains and valleys of Kvaløya-Island per dog sled. Each member of the expedition will be responsible for their own team of Alaskan Huskies – so be ready to experience every aspect of life as a musher in the Arctic, from preparing your sled to feeding your dogs! Our skilled guides will show you everything you need to know so do not worry if you have never tried it before. Good physical condition is required though.
The dog sledding lasts around 5-6 hours; the route will be worked out according to weather and snow conditions as well as your skill. During the trip, we will stop to enjoy the breathtaking landscapes, take pictures and have snacks and something hot to drink. After our return, we will warm you up around an open fire in our Gamme-hut. Here you will be served a hot dinner of Bidos, a traditional Sami reindeer stew (vegetarian alternative available upon preliminary request) and the dessert, before we take you back to Tromsø.
Please note: To participate in this tour, you must be 16 years or older.
Dog sledding also demands good physical fitness, including, but not limited to, the ability to jog uphill through snow, a good balance (also on one foot) and a tight grip.
