Description

Experience the most beautiful adventure in the fairytale Arctic wilderness and be a musher on a sled pulled by adorable Alaskan huskies.

You will feel the strength of your powerful team, as you ride through the winter wonderland of frozen lakes, forests and majestic mountains. On route, look out for fox, owl, snow grouse, eagle, reindeer and moose.

Parts of our trails are over steep and undulating terrain and therefor only suitable for fit adventure seekers. Two participants share a sled, alternating between mushing the sled and being a passenger.

Our trip starts at Radisson Blu Hotel in Tromsø. The drive to our camp takes about 35 minutes, where you will be greeted by our friendly staff and changed into suitable clothing before meeting your guide and the dogs. You will receive full instructions on how to mush your team and control your sled, preparing you fully for this unique adventure. The dog sled ride will take about 3 hours, weather dependent.

On your return, you will have the opportunity to unharness your team before saying good bye to your faithful dogs. A warm camp fire will be waiting for you, around which you can sit and exchange your stories of the trip whilst eating your packed lunch along with hot beverages and biscuits.
