Advanced Dog Sledding Daytime - Excl. Transport

This tour is conducted by Norwegian Travel (Lyngsfjord Adventure at Camp Tamok). Experience a unique dog sledding adventure through snowy terrain, surrounded by Arctic mountain landscape. Our team of huskies are eager to greet you and take you on a journey into the wilderness. No previous husky mushing skills needed. All you need is reasonable physical health and eagerness to try something new.

Note: This option does not include bus transportation. Please arrive at Camp Tamok, 15 minutes prior to the start of the activity. 


Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, you will be warmly greeted by your guide and outfitted with the essential gear including thermal suits, boots, and gloves, ensuring comfort and warmth for the adventure ahead. 

After preparations and necessary instructions on how to control and steer the sled, the main attraction awaits: set off on your unforgettable dog sledding adventure! 


On the dog sled ride, you will pair up with another guest, with two of you sharing a sled. One takes on the role of musher, guiding a team of energetic huskies through the snowy terrain, while the other enjoys the ride seated on the sled. Halfway, you will have the chance to switch roles, allowing each person to experience both the thrill of leading a team of huskies and the joy of being a passenger. 

After the dog sled ride, you will have the opportunity to visit our dog yard and indulge in some cuddle time with the huskies. To complete the experience, you can relax and warm up with a hot meal and drink by the open fire inside one of the lávvu (indigenous Sámi tent). 

After the lunch, it will be time to bid farewell to the huskies and Arctic Wilderness and return home, with memories to cherish for years to come. 


About your dog sledding activity 


This advanced dog sledding adventure has been labelled as a challenging activity with high difficulty level. 

The tour requires strength and fitness from all our guests, and a good physical condition is necessary to participate. 

Some parts of the trail can be covered with a fresh layer of snow or go uphill which means in both cases you will have to help the dogs to push the sled. 

The trail can be narrow and have sharp bends, which requires a good balance to steer the sled. 

Since you will be sharing the sled with another person it is required for both of you to meet these requirements when swapping places halfway the tour.
