Tromsø

Dog Sledding Adventure Daytime _ Incl. transport

Embark on an exciting journey departing from the city center of Tromsø by bus. After a 95-minute relaxing journey through Arctic mountains and fjords, you will enter the remote wilderness surrounding Tamokhuset.

Upon arrival, you will be divided in two groups.

In preparation for the dog sledding activity, the first group will be outfitted with the essential gear including thermal suits, boots, and gloves, ensuring comfort and warmth for the adventure ahead. After preparations and necessary instructions on how to steer the sled, they will set off on their dog sledding adventure.

Meanwhile, the other group will go for a visit to the dog yard, enjoy a hot meal and drink while listening to some fascinating facts about our huskies. After some relaxing time at the camp, they will get outfitted with the essential gear and receive necessary instructions as well for their upcoming dog sledding adventure!

When the first group has arrived back from their sled ride, both groups will switch places. Now it is time for the other group to set off on their adventure while the first group gets to relax at the camp with a hot meal and drinks, visit the dog yard and learn more about our huskies.

When the second group has returned from their sledding adventure, it will be time to board again the bus for the return to Tromsø.
Get comfortable and take a moment to reflect on your day's adventures out in the Arctic wilderness before arriving back to the city center of Tromsø.


About your dog sledding activity

You will pair up with another guest, with two of you sharing one sled. One takes on the role of musher, guiding the team of energetic huskies through the snowy terrain, while the other enjoys the ride seated on the sled. Halfway, you will have the chance to switch roles, allowing each person to experience both the thrill of leading a team of huskies and the joy of being a passenger.

This dog sledding ride has been carefully created as an activity accessible for most of you. Although you will need basic physical fitness walking around on snowy terrain and assisting the dogs on pushing the sled, the terrain is quite flat and open making the sledding comfortable and easy.

To drive your own dogsled requires strength and fitness and a good physical condition is necessary to participate: Some parts of the trail can be covered with a fresh layer of snow or go uphill which means in both cases you will have to help the dogs to push the sled. The trail can be narrow and have sharp bends, which requires a good balance to steer the sled. Since you will be sharing the sled with another person it is required for both of you to meet these requirements when swapping places halfway the tour. Our guides are entitled to deny drivers and passengers to join this tour out of health and safety reason.
