Self-Drive Dog Sledding

1940 NOK

per person

Are you looking for speed, excitement, and a challenge? Try your hand as a musher and lead a team of sled dogs on an arctic adventure!

After a drive from Tromsø city, you will arrive at our center. Here we will fit you with thermal overalls and boots to keep you warm and cozy in the polar temperatures. In the beginning, one of our experienced guides will teach you the basics of dog sledding and then we set off into the wilderness! You will share the sled with another guest; one driving, one riding it as the passenger and at the halfway point you will switch.
After this unforgettable experience, you can meet and cuddle our 300 Alaskan huskies and their puppies during a guided tour of our dog yard. Learn all about dog sled racing, the Alaskan Husky breed and animal welfare! Delicious Bidos -a traditional Sami reindeer stew, something hot to drink and a piece of our signature chocolate cake will await you in our Gamme-hut (vegetarian options available upon prior request). After saying goodbye to the dogs, we make our way back to Tromsø.

We impose an age restriction of 16 years for this tour, since the drivers in this tour are most likely very inexperienced and therefore prone to errors. The restriction is also applicable for guests that do not intend to drive the sled themselves. E.g. if a parent wants to do the driving and have their child as a passenger, it is not possible unless the child is over 16 years.

The activity also demands a good level of fitness, including, but not limited to, the ability to jog uphill through snow, a good balance (also on one foot) and a tight grip.
