This tour is conducted by Tromsø Villmarkssenter. Love speed and excitement? Join up with your own team of racing huskies to learn to dogsled.
You get your own sled to drive along with a friend or another guest, and you will switch in the middle of the track. You can enjoy the arctic coastal nature with fantastic view over Tromsø, surrounded with white covered mountains and long fjords. With about 4-6 km of dogsledding you also get to meet our 200 four-legged friends up close and spend some time with the puppies.
Two guests share a sled with 5-7 dogs. Professional guides are leading the group in their own sleds. After a trip out in the Norwegian winter a meal of Bidos, prepared with reindeer meat, broth and vegetables are just what the body needs.
We serve the meal in our camp around the fire (vegetarian meal available on request).
We have a minimum age of 16 years to drive the sled, this is for yours and the dog's safety. If you are concerned at all please contact us or book the Ride tour and one of our experienced mushers will drive the sled for you.
