Welcome to Northern Light Dog Adventure
Keen to try dog sledding while you are in the Tromsø region? Join us for an authentic dog sledding adventure off the beaten track and well away from the crowds. We guarantee small groups, personalised attention and lots of fun.
Experience genuine dog sledding fun surrounded by spectacular Arctic mountains. Learn to be a “musher” and feel what it’s like to drive your own team of dogs. You will be involved every step of the way, from greeting the dogs on arrival to helping to feed them when we return from our adventure.
Our dog sledding adventures are graded as medium. While no previous experience is required, you need to be in reasonable shape. The terrain here is slightly challenging so you need to be able to break going downhill and get off the sled and help the dogs when we are going uphill. You will be actively involved and remember this adventure for the rest of your life.
Dog sledding forms an important part of the winter culture here in the Arctic. We offer the real thing. You will experience the peace and tranquillity of this stunning landscape, interrupted only by the panting of the friendly and enthusiastic Alaskan huskies and the sound of their paws hitting the crisp snow.
Our basecamp is just an hour’s scenic drive from downtown Tromsø. We offer dog sledding packages including return transfers from Tromsø or you can come earlier and provide your own transport. We offer a changing room in an authentic Norwegian house. After the trip you can warm up in a heated lavvu with hot drinks and snacks.
Find the trip to suit you and join us in the spectacular Arctic mountains for a memorable adventure.
