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.

These dogs clearly live to run. Seeing them running with joy in this pristine, beautiful environment is an unforgettable experience.

This is one of the best trips I have ever been on. My friend and I arrived at 18:30 after being picked up by a taxi (included in the price) and driven to Tromsø Villmarkssenter. When we arrived we were met by a very friendly face and he showed us the puppies that we brought on a walk with two... More

A great, fun, albeit expensive experience. Good English speaking guides. Great time with the dogs. Initially I was concerned that it was not far enough out of town so would be less scenic (ride there, and also dog sledding), and also that it was not as long as other dog sled experiences available.

Huskies were all very well looked after and cared for. The staff clearly loved the dogs and could give anecdotes about each ones personalities etc. Husky sledding was amazing - you can drive or be a passenger, and they teach you the basics on how to slow down and go faster etc.

Overall trip was good. The only thing not very happy was that we had to wait for quite a while before we did dog sledging as we were in the area around doing nothing much which was disappointing otherwise overall ride was good.
