This tour is conducted by Tromsø Villmarkssenter. Lean back in your sled and enjoy the moment, while one of our experienced mushers drives you safely through the gorgeous mountain landscape of Kvaløya-Island.
This tour is perfect for taking pictures, families with children or anyone who wants to go on an adventure, but relaxed and in comfort.
Upon arrival at our center, located 25 minutes outside of Tromsø city, you will receive thermal overalls and boots to keep you warm and comfy during your stay. Once you are well-equipped, our guides will take you for a 45-60 minutes ride (depending on the weather conditions) in a sled shared with another guest.
When you return, our 300 Alaskan huskies and their puppies eagerly await your visit. On a guided tour of our dog yard, you can learn about the Alaskan Husky breed, dog sled racing and animal welfare. After the tour, you can relax and warm up around an open fire in our cozy Gamme-Hut. Here, you will also be served hot drinks and lunch. You can try Bidos, a traditional Sami reindeer dish, but we also offer a vegetarian option on preliminary request. A piece of our world-famous chocolate cake for dessert will be the final highlight before we make our way back to Tromsø.
The husky sled ride lasts for 45-60 minutes.
