This tour is conducted by Tromsø Villmarkssenter. Dog Sledding through the arctic winter night is a magical experience.
With headlamps and the help of our trusty dogs, our guides will drive you safely through the frozen beauty of the mountain landscape surrounding our center on Kvaløya. Before we start, you will receive thermal overalls and boots to keep you warm in the arctic winter night. And then we are off! You will share the sled with a friend and be out on the trail for 45-60 minutes depending on the weather conditions.
After we return, you will get a tour of the dog yard, and then we will serve dinner in our cozy Gamme-hut. A steaming bowl of Bacalao, a traditional Norwegian fish dish made of local produce, and a cup of hot coffee or tea, served around an open fire will warm you right up after your adventure (vegetarian alternative available upon preliminary request). While you eat and relax, your guide will keep an eye on the sky and inform you about any Aurora activity. After a last goodbye to the dogs, we bring you back to Tromsø.
