Full description

Mush your own husky team on this unique dog sledding evening tour through snowy terrain, surrounded by incredible mountain landscapes and scenic fjords.

If you're lucky, you might have the magical Northern Lights dancing on top of you. You do not need any previous skills to mush your own husky team. All you need is reasonable physical health and an eagerness to try something new. Join an authentic experience at the wilderness center Camp Tamok, a 90-minute scenic bus drive away from the city center of Tromsø. Upon arrival at the camp, get dressed in warm winter clothes and the other required gear for your dogsledding activity.

Your guides will then give thorough safety instructions and a practical demonstration on how to steer your own sled. Once you are ready, you will embark on your journey: two people will share each sled and a dog team.

One is the "musher" (driver) and the other can sit back and enjoy the ride. (If your group includes children, each child must be accompanied by an adult.) You will get the chance to switch places midway during the 10 to 12 kilometer dog sledding trail. Depending on snow conditions, you will spend up to 1 hour and 30 minutes completing it.

Even though this tour is not focused on hunting the Northern Lights, being outside on a dark winter evening might give a wonderful opportunity to witness the lights. After the tour, you will be served a hot meal in a traditional Northern Norwegian setting around the open fire in a reindeer herder's tent. After relaxing and warming up, board the bus back to the city and reflect on a memorable adventure.

    Amazing experience. We went on an evening with low snow levels, which meant we couldn’t stay out as long as usual and terrain was a bit tougher. That said, the time we did spend sledding was incredible. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the dogs were adorable and also friendly. Would absolutely book again. Once in a lifetime experience.

    Real one of a kind experience, can recommend, staff were very nice too. Going at night is a bit of a gamble though, if the sky is clear and you can see the lights then there's nothing like it, but the chances of that happening are low, and you miss the scenery

    Really helpful enthusiastic, professional and interested staff. (Thanks Pedro). Very well organised and we were lucky to see the lights. Plenty of time to take photos and look around. Sledging was such fun. Dogs were lovely. Supper not amazing but everything else made for a really nice special evening and we’ll organised. It was an exceptionally cold night we went but if you just sit in the sledge the whole time you will get a bit cold despite extra gear provided (which was all good quality) so dress up warm.We were lucky to have the lights over our head almost all the time even on return coach journey.lovely evening and coach trip out and back made for a nice long trip and countryside was stunning
