Taste the musher’s life and explore the mountains and valleys of Tromsø region with a dog sled. Each member of the expedition will be responsible for his or her own team of dogs and you will get to experience every aspect of life as a musher in the Arctic.
Before the expedition starts you get a full introduction into dog sledding. Then we head out towards the mountains and, depending on weather, we drive for 5-8 hours to our campsite where we settle down for the night. You get to take care of the dogs before you set up your own camp. Hopefully, the Northern Lights will appear.
After breakfast the next day you will go further up the mountains to enjoy the beauty of the arctic wilderness. Possible wildlife sightings along the trail include fox, eagles, arctic and snowshoe hares, moose and reindeers.
Around 5.00pm/17:00 you will return the Centre where we will serve a traditional Sami meal “Bidos” (Reindeer stew) in a Sami tent.
During the 2-day expedition, you will learn about dog sledding. No former experience is needed but the trip requires a good physical condition. Our Alaskan huskies love people and are very friendly so you might make some furry friends during the tour.
The 2-day expeditions start only on Mondays and Fridays. If you want to come on a day that’s not offered in the online booking, please don’t hesitate to give us a call or contact us by e-mail!
