Husky Experience and Dog Sled Driving - Morning 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.

This tour departs from the Scandic Ishavshotel (outside) 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.

On this shorter dog sledding tour, you will get the chance to drive your dog sled in a slow and comfortable pace for about 10-15 minutes depending on the conditions. Halfway through the tour 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.

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!
