Activity description

Are you fascinated by speed and Arctic Norwegian nature close to the Arctic Circle? Join the experienced guides of Tromsø Wilderness Center and learn how to ride your own team of racing huskies in Tromsø! No previous experience.

Let's paint a picture. It's around 10 am, you are in the northern part of Norway close to the Arctic Circle. Snow has just fallen leaving a couch of powder snow over the scenic mountains of Tromsø. You have your own dog sled with your own excited huskies. It feels like the sled is almost surfing over the snow as you are driving your team of dogs at a fast speed. Thrilling yet peaceful. 

Does this sound exciting? Join up the experienced guides of Tromsø Wilderness Center and get the real experience of dog sledding today! 


The tour starts off outside of Radisson Blu Hotel in Tromsø where you will be picked up by your experienced guides. After a 25 minutes trip, you will reach the perfect destination for you to start dog sledding. 

You'll have your own team of dogs with your friend and can switch driver in the middle of the track. After about 4 km (45 to 60 min.), you'll also get to meet the Huskies and puppies. Two people will share a sled with 5 to 7 dogs. An expert guide will lead the group in a separate sled.
After a ride out in the Norwegian winter, you'll enjoy a Bidos, a local meal prepared with reindeer meat, broth, and vegetables (vegetarian meal available upon request).

After the activity, tired yet full of many newly created exciting memories Tromsø Wilderness Center will drive you back to Radison Blu Hotel.
