Activity description

Come and experience the ultimate dog sled experience for the adventure seekers among you! If you want a taste of the real musher’s life, explore the mountains and valleys with the dogs, then this is the expedition for you!

Together with the experienced guides you drive your own team of well-trained huskies for an evening, one, two or five days while camping in tents (on the expeditions more than one day).

You will start in Signaldalen in the Storfjord region, the destination will depend on the snow and weather conditions at the time. You have to be ready for long days, sleeping in tents, and hard work for the trips that last more than one day!

You will have an experience of a lifetime, while crossing unique nature and can call yourself a real musher when you finish. You will pass through terrains with many ice covered lakes that have prime ice fishing conditions; your guide will bring ice fishing equipment and hopefully you can catch your own dinner on a few of the days. After the one-day activities, local food will be served; reindeer meat, broth and vegetables.

The stunning natural beauty of Arctic Norway provides the perfect playground for outdoor activities. Winter time brings soft snows and spectacular Aurora displays in the sky. During this time it's great fun to go dogsledding, on aurora hunts and more.

The Arctic summer is short, but intense, as all life struggles to make the most of the 24 hour daylight. The Gulf Stream provides a surprising warmth, providing optimal conditions for hiking, kayaking and various other outdoor activities.

Dog sledding in Tromso

Dog sledding. It was nice, but rather high and somewhat over- priced. We were a family with 6 people, so a discount would have been fair.

Great Experience!

C'était une magnifique journée et surtout un encadrement très agréable et consciencieux. Belle randonnée, sans difficulté mais offrant de superbes vues et des chiens qui avaient envie d'avancer.... Repas sympathique dans un espace typique....

Was very well organised and super fun. The guides and mushers were so patient! Everything was explained clearly and we got to swap the driving with our partner about half way. The dogs were amazing and very affectionate. It was quite physical helping the dogs go up the small hills which kept you very warm.

Dogsledding was fun - The dogs were great. I am a bit of a speed person so I was keen to go faster that we did. We had to wait for groups behind us who were going slower so there was a lot of stop and start.

Fantastic!!
