Overview
More
We started out as a home for dogs in 1988, since then our passion for dogs and life in the nature has taken us on an exilerating journey. Today we're one of Tromso's leading tourist destinations with over 300 dogs. Our main tours are with the dogsleds but we also have Northern Lights tours and snowshoe rentals. In the summer we have Kayak trips, a wide range of tours and hikes with our huskies and puppies as well as glacier hikes. We'll provide warm clothes on all our tours to keep you warm while enjoying the Arctic Nature.

I did the midnight kayak tour with Harley as my guide. It was excellent. Well-maintained gear with dry suits available. Lots of good food included. I would recommend in a second!

The dogs are treated very well, with regular visits to the vets and guides give them plenty of love. Many of the guides adopt the dogs when they retire as they care for them so much.
