Dog sledding with wagons

Join us for an autumn adventure at The Whale Island outside of Tromsø. Where you will get the chance to experience winter fun in the summer season.

This tour is conducted by Kvaløya Husky.

At the end of winter season we pack away the sleds and prepare for summer. During this time the dogs get more rest than usual, but they still need to stay in shape for the upcoming season. The preparations for the winter shape starts early. Therefore we bring out our husky wagons. Which means that we can give you the husky experience in all seasons. This year we offer husky wagon rides in the period of august to september.

On this trip you will be brought to our dogyard at Leirstrandvegen 227, 9106 Straumsbukta. When the dogs are pepared we will drive together to our trail where the wagons are placed. As a visitor you get the opportunity to sit in one wagon driven by one of our professional mushers. Each wagon has two seats, which is excellent for enjoying the experience with a friend or family, children are to be accompanied by adults. During the ride we will take you trough our husky trail in beautiful landscape. Afterwards you get time to greet the dogs of your team, show them love and ask any question to our workers. Our employees will also be able to share their experiences and stories so you can get to know more about the work that we put into our dogkeeping.
