Overview

This activity is conducted by Kvaløya Husky. Join us for a summertime adventure at The Whale Island (Kvaløya), outside of Tromsø. This activity is for people that love to be outdoors.

Karianne is one of the dogmushers at Kvaløya Husky, and during summertime she loves to go camping in tents and hammock. Enjoying her time outdoors in the lightest season in the north (the time of the midnightsun). This year she has decided that she would like to invite our visitors to join her on the adventures at the Whale Island, exploring the island together. Karianne will either way not go alone, seeing as some of our huskies will accompany her. The best way to spend time outdoors is together with your best four legged friends. Maybe also the Corgi Blunka will join the adventure.

On this trip the tent, backpack, sleepingbag, sleeping mat, rain poncho, eating/cooking utensils are provided by us. Dinner, supper and breakfast is included in the price (if you have any allergies or special food requests let us know).

All guests need to bring their own clothes and hikingboots (should be waterproof seeing as we might come across wet terrains). The arctic summer can vary a lot between warm and cold weather so it is recommended to bring: Wool underwear (base layer, long sleeved), jumper (wool or fleece), extra pair of socks, gloves, hat, sunglasses, sleepliner for sleepingbag, desired snacks, water bottle and camera.

It is voluntary for the guests to walk with husky, but everyone will get the chance if they are interested.
This activity is at the difficulty medium, seeing as all guests need to be able to carry their bag with equipment between 5 - 10 kilo, over a couple of kilometers in varying terrain. Every trip will be adjusted after the skills of the guests.
