Sled dogs used to be the main form of transportation in the arctic, connecting some of the most isolated places in the world.

Today, planes, snowmobiles, and cars have replaced this job, but one thing will never change ...

Take a short or a long daytrip, or go on a dog sled adventure that lasts several days.

In Norway, you can go dog sledding in every part of the country. Many skiing destinations in Southern and Eastern Norway offer dog sled rides.

Discover winter paradise in Røros, or the Northern Norway's arctic gems, including Tromsø, Alta and Kirkenes ...

... or imagine riding a dog sled in the extraordinary landscape of Svalbard. Dog sleds and snowmobiles are often the only way to get around on the nearly roadless island.

If you're lucky, you may see the northern lights!

See the elite in action

If you want to learn from the best, Norway is an ideal destination. Each year, we host two world-famous sled dog races: the Femund Race and the Finnmark Race.

The Femund Race is the world’s biggest race, with participants from all over Europe, and is known for being hilly. The race starts in the cosy mining town of Røros, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The professional mushers and their dogs travel at high speeds past cheering crowds in the middle of the town, before disappearing into the wild and scenic surroundings.

In March, mushers from all around the world travel to Alta in Northern Norway to participate in the Finnmark Race - Europe’s longest sled dog race. For several days, the white, freezing desert is their home. Total whiteouts can make it extremely challenging for mushers and dogs alike. Hundreds of kilometres later, racers receive a warm welcome from the audience as they cross the finish line back in Alta.

Chase the northern lights by dog sled

Where to try dog sledding

Northern Norway
Svalbard and Finnmark are popular places for dog sledding. Many local operators, most of them small family businesses, offer a range of fixed and tailor-made dog sledding tours.

A little further south, operators near Bardu and Tromsø are ready to welcome you. Many operators combine a dog sledding experience with a northern lights adventure.

Central and Eastern Norway
Dog sledding tours are also available in other parts of Norway. Two operators are located in Røros, while several companies in or around the Hallingdal valley – such as Geilo, Ål, and Nesbyen – offer trips of varying duration.

Elsewhere in the east of the country, you could also dog sled in Gålå, Trysil, and Beitostølen.

Southern Norway
In the south, you will also find tours on offer in mountainous Telemark. Go to Sirdal, Rauland, and Hovden.
