Overview
Experience two classic Norwegian activities in a single tour: a husky-drawn two-passenger sled ride and a peek at the famous Northern Lights. It’s possible to do it all in one evening when all the details are taken care of, including provided thermal suits and traditional dinner. You'll learn about the tradition of dogsledding in Norway, as well as the science and mystery behind the phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis.
Highlights
  • Combine two quintessential Norwegian activities in a single evening tour
  • Convenient round-trip transportation from downtown Tromso 
  • Enjoy a hearty traditional Norwegian dinner; vegetarian option available
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in the evening at a central location in Tromso, where you'll board a comfortable bus for the ride to the countryside, about 30 minutes away. At the dog yard, get outfitted with a thermal suit and boots to fight off the Arctic air. After a brief introduction, an experienced musher takes you on a two-passenger ride into the Norwegian winter landscape. Listen to guide commentary and keep watch for the elusive Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). You’re in an ideal location to see them, far away from city light pollution. Learn about the mystery behind their appearance and what conditions make for the best viewing. Back at the yard, spend some time visiting with the pack of dogs, including puppies being trained for the trade. Then head inside for a dinner of traditional Norwegian food before heading back to town.

Was great seeing the Husky's, who were very well cared for and had a real bond with their handlers, and really enjoyed the sleigh ride. However, there was one point towards the end where the trail hadn't been carved out of the snow so the dogs really struggled and didn't really

Thank you for your feedback! We usually recommend our guests to bring a scarf that can be pulled over the face if necessary. Due to the weather conditions and the extreme snowfall during the last days, it was unfortunately very hard to keep the tracks clean at all times. But be assured that the dogs breaking the trails get an extra big portion of dinner for their hard work!

Really lovely location. The hosts & mushers are friendly & knowledgeable. We booked in advance for a husky experience and the following day booked for the dog sledding tour both brilliant. Also ticked off the ambition to see the Northern Lights as they kindly made an appearance.
