Dog sledding in Tromsø


Did you know that you can go dog sledding in some of the best nature Norhtern Norway has to offer — just 20 minutes outside of Tromsø?

There’s several tour operators offering husky sledding in the area, including Arctic Adventure Tours, Active Tromsø and  Tromsø Villmarksenter. No matter if you want to go exloring in the early morning, or search for the northern lights in the dark — you can experience it here.

What does a typical tour involve?

First you’ll get kitted out with warm clothes and meet your guide.

Then you’re given instructions on how to drive the sled, meet your dogs for the day (my favorite part), before you’re heading off into the wild. You have command of the sled (should you wish) — and your guide will follow along.

It’s definitely a unique experience — and due to the closeness to Tromsø city, combining it with Hurtigruten or a short stay in Tromsø isn’t a problem at all.

We recommend that you book early, as these are not large group tours — and it’s extremely popular.
