Activity description

Say hello to a bunch of barking huskies that are ready for action (but still very friendly). You'll drive the dog sled by yourself into the white landscapes, through the beautiful Vass Valley, an uninhabited forest landscape surrounded by majestic mountains.

Upon arrival at the wilderness camp, you'll receive outdoor clothes and shoes to keep you warm during your outing. You will be given instructions on how to drive a dog sled by an experienced musher.

You will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each sled, with the opportunity to switch places half way. The trails you follow have a total distance of approximately 10-12 km, and you will be on the sled for about 1,5-2 hours.

At the end of the trail you will return to Camp Tamok. There you will be served a hot meal and fresh coffee in the dining lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent). After you've filled up with food and beverages, the bus will take you back to Tromsø city centre.

Not sure if you want to go during the day or in the evening? Daytime trips give you an amazing view of the untamed mountains in the area, whilst the evening trips will give you a good opportunity to experience the Northern Lights while driving the sled.

The activity was amazing. We had a full 2-hours worth of dog sledding, covering a lot of distance with amazing views. The activity was followed by a delicious dinner, desert and drinks in a cabin complete with wood fire.

UNE SUPERBE SORTIE !!

We went dog sledding at night, and it was just fantastic - really well organised, really fun and whilst other reviews suggest it is hard work, dog sledding is accessible and easy for anyone that has a reasonable fitness level. I would definitely come back again!

Great dog sled tour through beautiful nature. We had a lot of fun even though we had bad luck with our Group. Dog sledding requires a good physical condition (as mentioned in the discription!) so don't book a self-drive tour if you're not even able to run! And I don't understand why People want to do this although they do not really like Dogs?! So we had to stop during the tour very often and unfortunately missed out time with the dogs after sledding. But that's not the fault of the host. We enjoyed the time with the Dogs and the meal afterwards anyway.

Thoroughly enjoyed it! Can be physically demanding. These dogs have so much power and can pick up speed so quickly so hold on tight always. So much fun.

Wunderbar challenge!

Essential to wear all warm clothing (-20 during evening), especially 2 pairs of gloves..invigorating going down hill, but quite physical helping the dogs up the slope!..best sled would be right behind instructor, as we had to regularly stop behind a slower run sled in front of us, very frustrating as we wanted to mush faster! The food was well earned after activity, and we also had a glimpse of the Northern Lights...fantastico...thank you Norway!

It was an awesome experience. Only issue was the group was so large if someone wasn't following instructions, the rest of the convoy would have to stop while issues were resolved. This activity is not for those who want to be leisurely . Keep in mind that while going up hill you must assist the dogs by pushing the sled or running . Those who did not held up the procession.

Worth it!!
