Husky Experience and Dog Sled Driving - Noon Tour

Driving your own team of huskies is an out of the ordinary experience and a must-do for anyone visiting Northern Norway. The dog sled has been used for centuries throughout the Arctic region, mainly for travel, hunting and transportation. Even if outdoor winter adventures are not your thing, this tour offers you a chance to check this traditional experience off your list and take lots of photos.

On the shortest days in December, you’ll also get to experience the early Arctic dusk and see how the dogs find their way around the trails even with limited visibility during this departure time.

In this tour, you will get the chance to drive your dog sled for about a kilometer where our guide stops the tour to take photos of you being a dog musher before you switch places with your passenger. Once done with photos, you will take the return trip back to camp.

After your dog sledding ride, you’ll get the chance to strengthen your bond with your newly made furry friends that helped you through your adventure. You can give and receive all the cuddles that you can handle. Once you say farewell to your four-legged companions, you are invited to the warm comforts of our panorama restaurant where you can learn a lot more about the dogs from our knowledgeable guides over some hot drinks and cake.

All tours depart outside the Scandic Ishavshotel where you will be picked up for a scenic 50-minute transfer to our camp in Breivikeidet. Upon arrival at our camp in Breivikeidet, situated in a picturesque valley close to the sea, you will be welcomed by our friendly staff, and we will provide you with polar insulated suits, boots, hats, and mittens before heading out on the dogsledding adventure.

You do not need any previous experience. Before meeting the huskies, your guide will go through the safety instructions, show you the basics of driving the sled and you will get to practice for a couple of minutes.

Two people will share one sled: one as a driver and the other one as a passenger. You will get a chance to swap places halfway through the tour, so that everyone gets to experience the life of a dog musher, but also have time to take all the photographs they want.

When you change back to your normal clothes from the polar suits and wave one last goodbye to the huskies, you’ll be driven back to the city with an experience of a lifetime behind you and spectacular photos to show for it!
