  • Tromsø: Self-Drive Husky Dog Sledding Adventure

    1. Tromsø: Self-Drive Husky Dog Sledding Adventure

    To start the adventure, your driver will meet you at the pickup point at the Scandic Ishavshotel 10 minutes before your scheduled departure. You will hop on the comfortable minibus and enjoy the short 35-minute drive out to the kennel on the island of Kvaløya. When you arrive at the kennel, you will be directed to the equipment room, where you will be kitted out with everything you need including winter suits, boots, and headlamps. You will be able to leave any items that you do not need in the lockers.  Once kitted out, you will see the kennel of 130 Alaskan Huskies, who are always excited to meet guests. You will be given a short talk and a demonstration on how to drive a sled and be able to ask any questions that you may have. After everyone is happy with the instructions you will follow your guide up to where your teams are ready and waiting for you. Each pair, one passenger and one...

    Fantastic day at the Arctic Adventure. The huskies were so friendly and cute. The sled ride was awesome (the perfect weather conditions was no disadvantage of course!). We really enjoyed Hege's chocolate cake and coffee, and otherwise her warm hospitality. We also had a good briefing of the huskies and what they do during the different seasons. Thanks for a wonderful day!

  • From Tromsø: Snowshoe Hiking Tour and Husky Camp Visit

    2. From Tromsø: Snowshoe Hiking Tour and Husky Camp Visit

    Walking on top of a deep layer of snow, listen to the steady rhythm of your breath. A gorgeous mountain landscapes stretches as far as the eye can see; let the image sink into your mind. For the locals, hiking is more than just another outdoor activity, it is the most intimate way to experience nature. Immerse yourself in the moment and let things fall into perspective; clear your head and refill your batteries. Follow your guide into the Arctic wilderness and experience it all for yourself. The exact route will be determined based on the weather conditions and wishes of the group. If the weather allows, enjoy your homemade chocolate cake and something hot to drink on the trail while taking in the views. Otherwise, indulge in the snack around an open fire at the husky camp upon return. Get to know the fluffy friends and their puppies before heading back to Tromsø.

We booked a half day with my girlfriend and we were delighted. From the pick up at the meeting point, to the sled ride through the wonderful landscape inland from Tromsø, to the petting time with the dogs in the camp, it was a really great time! We really felt that the dogs loved to go out for a walk! They were all adorable, and the guide accompanying us was really nice. When we came back, we had a moment by the fire with cakes and tea during which we could pose. In short, really good, I recommend!

Amazing, wonderful experience with the dogs (and us) super excited to take the sled out! Plenty of opportunities to swap drivers and time to play with the dogs afterwards. Informative hosts who really care about their dogs :).

Very very nice, the dogs were beautiful, so as the landscape The guides were experimented and friendly. An amazing experience that I will recommend to everyone. A must to do

It was not as easy as I thought, but the whole experience was fantastic, worth a try.
