Overview
Dogsledding in the winter night can be a magical experience whether the moon or the green shimmer of Aurora Borealis lights the mountains.

Guided by headlamps and the dog’s nose we safely take you up into the mountains where hopefully the northern lights will dance for us. With a 2:1 guest to guide ratio, everyone will have a sled driven by our professional mushers.

With about one hour of dogsledding you also get to meet our 350 four legged friends up close and spend some time with the puppies. Our trained handlers will explain how we keep the dogs, the difference between a working dog and a pet, all about the Alaskan husky and more. 

After the trip, we gather around the fire and serve our hearty meal of Bidos, prepared with reindeer meat, broth and vegetables to warm you up again (vegetarian meal available on request).

Highlights
  • Combine two quintessential Norwegian activities in a single evening tour
  • Convenient round-trip transportation from downtown Tromso 
  • Enjoy a hearty traditional Norwegian dinner; vegetarian option available
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in the evening at a central location in Tromso, where you'll board a comfortable bus for the ride to the countryside, about 30 minutes away. At the dog yard, get outfitted with a thermal suit and boots to fight off the Arctic air. After a brief introduction, an experienced musher takes you on a two-passenger ride into the Norwegian winter landscape. Listen to guide commentary and keep watch for the elusive Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). You’re in an ideal location to see them, far away from city light pollution. Learn about the mystery behind their appearance and what conditions make for the best viewing. Back at the yard, spend some time visiting with the pack of dogs, including puppies being trained for the trade. Then head inside for a dinner of traditional Norwegian food before heading back to town.

This was absolutely amazing. I cannot put into words how incredible it was. The staff are lovely and it is so well run. The sled ride itself was about 45 minutes, and you have another 45 minutes to enjoy cuddling the dogs and puppies. Once you’re done sledding, you get taken

My friend and I visited on 2January 2020, our last tour of our Tromsø break. Very well organised pick up and drop off. Loved our sled ride, we laughed so much at getting pulled through bushes and stranded on a mound at one point by the excitable huskies, all added to the fun.
