Itinerary
Meet for this Tromso sled-driving tour at the Radisson Blu.

After a short ride over to the countryside, arrive at a dog-sledding center. A guide gives you an orientation on the basics, so you feel confident to get in the driver’s seat.

Out on the snow, take the reins and ride as a bunch of huskies pull your sled. Race at top speeds, and go at the pace you feel most comfortable at.

Make a pit stop at a husky breeding center home to meet cute huskies. The center is home to more than 250 dogs. Before your tour ends, enjoy a traditional Norwegian meal of bidos (reindeer meat, broth, and vegetables) by a campfire. (Vegetarian options are also available).

Your dog-sledding experience ends with a drop-off back at the Radisson Blu in Tromso.
